This shows that many parents are sceptical to the vaccinations, what might have negative consequences for children. The reason why in 1990s and 2000s many children did not receive their vaccination was the publication of The Lancet study by Andrew Wakefield talking about a link between autism and MMR vaccination. The strong phrase that some people still remember is that vaccinations are dangerous. Despite the fact that science has proven this is wrong some people still believe there is link between autism development and MMR vaccination. Therefore it is strange that they are making informed choice.
The optimists are idealists that hope that nothing will go wrong with the manipulations. However, skeptics analyze the situation more and wait out for more concrete evidence. The altered cow’s milk might not have any side effects at this moment, but it may be dormant until later in life. The milk producers will be able to bring in a high yield of milk annually if the gene manipulation works, however, they will not be able to convince the countless skeptics that genetically altered cows produce a safe product. Instead of profiting from a high yield the producers will lose customers because of their anxiety towards the foreign milk.
Opinions in society differ over whether there should be any genetic manipulation of humans. Some people believe curing diseases such as cystic fibrosis and other genetically disabling diseases should be considered ethical and acceptable, but advancing human intelligence, strength and personal characteristics is not. Others believe that genetic manipulation of humans of any form is unethical and therefore should not be done while others believe it is advantageous and advancements should be pursued. One of the main reasons people are opposed to genetic manipulation of human beings is because it could go wrong. It is very hard to determine all the potential effects of gene therapy.
Brain rejuvenation is not ethical especially compared to the first medical procedure you performed on Julia North. Julia North was given a fair opportunity to live by having her brain placed in a noter person's body. However, when you want to construct a brain that is the exact same as the original brain of a person and replace it with the old brain, I believe this is very unethical. If you were to make more replicas of Nick's brain and put them in other people's bodies then there would be more than one Nick, which is impossible and unethical because it should not be possible to have this issue in the first place. Therefore I believe you and the committee need to reconsider your decision on allowing brain rejuvenation and disallow it.
Spanking Children Many parents think that spanking is a good way to correct the bad attitudes and bad things that children usually do. Parents usually spank children for these reasons, but parents should know that children can get some different [additional] problems because of spanking.

if the mother smokes, drinks or abuses drugs the baby could be harmed at this time or even if the maternal anxiety & stress could influence development. Infections that the mother may pick up such as rubella can create difficulties for the developing baby. A child’s development can also be influenced by when their born and during the birth. Some babies are born prematurely and this can play a part in their later development, this is one reason premature babies progress is measured according to the date they were due to be born rather than their actual birth date. External factors Poverty, this affects children and their families in a variety of ways for example, education: lack of opportunities can affect life outcomes, children from low-income families are less likely to do well academically due to the fact of potential of reduced access to quality education and the best schools as well as limited access to a variety of books, equipment plus internet.
It seems that gradually genetics might play a role in causing depression, addiction and issues to do with self-esteem, these could cause by predisposing the children in some way. It means that genetic code does not absolutely govern what we will do or become, but certain environmental factors will trigger the genes to affect them. A baby’s development can be effected during the pregnancy or at the moment of conceiving. If the mother smokes, drink alcohol or uses drugs, this way the baby can be harmed during the pregnancy. Furthermore, there are influences of children’s development after conceived, for example some babies are born too early and this play a part in their later development.
A learning disability happens when a persons brain development is affected, either before they are born, during their birth or in early childhood. Several factors can affect brain development including – ( the mother becoming ill during pregnancy. ( problems during the birth that may stop enough oxygen getting to the babies brain. ( the unborn baby developing certain genes. ( the parents passing certain genes to the unborn baby that make having a learning disability more likely.
Race, religious beliefs, or cultural differences should not be the sole reason to prevent an adoption from occurring. If a family meets the necessary criteria and have successfully completed the necessary requirements to receive a child then adoption agencies should allow them to adopt any child they choose. Interracial families will face difficulties but even the average “normal” family will have obstacles they will encounter. The concept that adoption agencies have about providing the best option for the sake of the child needs to include addressing high wait times. The solution could be placing the child with a family of a different race.
If a woman aborts her baby she could be denying that couple who can’t have a baby the opportunity to adopt. This view would be negative for a larger number of people, so in the Utilitarianism view, it would not be ok to abort the baby. There are many different way’s this could go, it just depends on the situation, and whether the results will have a more positive outcome or more negative outcome for the larger number due to the
