Human Genetic Engineering

Human Genetic Engineering is the alteration of genetic material. As science is improving as so does our need to make the world a “better” place. Technological advancements have let us cloned many animals but the next step you say? The next step is human engineering, as humans of perfection; we are always trying to find ways to make things better than others. They are able to manipulate the human genome and to cure the world of diseases. Scientists are able to make the perfect humans, stronger, faster, smarter, and no deformity. As humans should react, many problems rise up about “what being human really means?” Science is moving faster than moral understanding. Values, morals, and our humanity are thrown at

We all know where this will lead to.

How humans believe that what was given to us, we should cherish it, embrace it, accept it, and work with what you have to Celebrate nature and don’t try to control everything. Everything in life has a purpose, and others see it as something that humans can fix and make it “better”. No one person is alike and what makes us unique is how we are made, not by what is inserted in us to make us different than others. “In a world without givens, a world controlled by bioengineering, we would dictate our nature, as well as our practices and norms.” (Sandel, para.11). Everything that we know and see about how
