Tolerating Blind Obedience In “The Clan of One-Breasted Women” by Terry Tempest Williams, she writes about the high occurrence of breast cancer in her family and informs the reader on the rates of cancer generally in the Mormon community. By using personification, simile, allusion, and evidence to create sympathy and credibility. Williams writes about the history of breast cancer in her family and how the atomic bomb testing affected Utah. She also writes about people keeping quiet to avoid being labeled as communistic. The underling effect is to inform the reader that the cancer cases were caused by the atomic bomb testing and to reveal the view of the 50’s and how people were either for the government or they were considered communist.
In many people minds, fetus is a human being who has the right to survive. Obviously, killing someone is immoral, but fetus is no completely as same as a normal human being. In “A Defense of Abortion”, Thomason used a few examples to show that fetuses must rely on their mom for about ten month to become normal being. Thomson said that fetuses are persons that have the rights to live, but most abortions are permissible. (a) Thomson used some cases as the violinist, the open windows to establish thought experiments to argue that abortion is permissible in most cases.
Pros of Designer Babies Genetic screening can reduce the baby's chances of being born with several serious diseases like Down Syndrome, Famial hypercholesterolemia, rare blood disorders such as Diamond Blackfan Anaemia, etc. Adam Nash was the world's first known designer baby born by the revolutionary pre-implantation process in the year 2000. Scientists genetically selected his embryo so that he would possess the right cells to save his dying sister's life. His sister suffered from Fanconi's anaemia (blood disorder), and mostly the chances of Adam getting that disorder was also very high. An embryo was chosen, which did not have Fanconi's anaemia.
“Human cloning could make it possible for many more infertile couples to have children than ever before possible” (http://robby.nstemp.com/about.html). Scientists just need women’s fetus and put DNA from men, whom the women desire to have children with, inside their fetus. Furthermore, with this cloning technology, women can also ask scientists to create their own children with certain characteristics. For instance, they can ask scientists to enhance their babies in vision and hearing, extreme intelligence, or even create a supermodel’s body. Besides that, with this cloning technology, scientists can also guarantee that they can clone a healthy baby who is free from the risks of genetic diseases.
Cameron Diaz plays the role of Sara Fitzgerald with determination and innocence. She continuously fulfils the character expected throughout the proceedings, her battle with Kate’s leukaemia is thrown out of control when the case is delievered in Kate’s hospital room. The character perceived is a mother who loves her daughter as any mother would, but her vision is clouded when it comes to Anna and Jesse. Anna is in sight, but rather out of view as a result of being a donor. She is played with awe and the viewer is left with a sense of devotion and confusion.
Joining other profoundly bioethical films such as Gattaca (1997; addresses genetic engineering of super humans), Million Dollar Baby (2004; tackles assisted dying), and The Island (2005; deals with the creation of human clones to be spare parts for the wealthy sick), My Sister’s Keeper takes on a real-life issue commonly known as “savior sibling.” A “savior sibling” refers to the creation of a genetically matched human being, in order to be the savior of a sick child in need of a donor. This requires creating human embryos in vitro, or literally “in glass” (i.e. a test tube), fertilizing the egg from the mother with the father’s sperm. Then, using pre-implantation technology, the embryos are tested, and the one deemed genetically compatible is implanted into the mother’s womb in order for the embryo to grow and develop. Once that baby is delivered, the cord blood is often collected because it provides a perfect match for the sick sibling.
Speech Title: Blood Donations Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to donate blood. Thesis: Individuals should donate blood because blood is needed every two seconds, blood is perishable, and there is no substitute for blood. Introduction: Imagine a ten year old girl loosing pints of blood due to trauma, to the point where her body no longer can function. This little girl lies unconscious, doctors and family hoping she will survive. The only thing that can save her is a blood transfusion, which would be needed from a donor.
Artificial sugars good or bad? The use of artificial sweeteners has both positive and negative effects on your body, some learn the hard way while others catch on before its to late. My mom got lucky that her thyroid doctor had warned her about the artificial sweeteners messing with her thyroids. After finding this out she spread the word like wild fire. My family and I did countless hours of research on other effects of artificial sweeteners, we found it “(causes) cancer of the bladder, uterus, ovaries, skin, and other organs” (WebMD).
The Greatness of Human Cloning Human cloning has many beneficial aspects that can help many people in the world. Many religions feel that cloning is against what they believe, but only because they believe it kills people. So far there has never been a human to be successfully cloned. Many people do not want this to happen for the same reason that many religions think, it is against their religion. Cloning does not achieve its goal by splitting a person into two like some bizarre science experiment and making a new embryo.
Selective reduction is the process of voluntarily terminating one or more fetuses in a multi-fetal pregnancy in order to increase the likelihood of a successful and viable birth. The procedure is used to manage multiple pregnancies that result from fertility treatments such as IVF and also some naturally occurring multi-fetal pregnancies. This procedure was developed in the 1980’s by Dr. Mark Evans (Evans & Britt, 2010). This is a controversial topic to many people who classify this action as abortion. Abortion is the termination of the entire pregnancy yet selective reduction is performed to improve the survival rate of the remaining fetuses and also the mother.
