Introduction

PAGE THREE: POSITIVE POINTS III -Now what I am presenting for my case study is whether or not genetic screening is bad. Many people argue the negative and positive sides of genetic screening and how good or bad it might be. Here are a few points that go in favour of genetic screening. GENETIC SCREENING CAN HELP SAVE MONEY IN CARING FOR THE CHILD AFTER EMBRYO IS BORN. IT WILL HELP FURTHER GENERATIONS NOT TO CONTRACT THE DISEASE. CAN HELP ALERT THE PARENTS IF THEY WERE UNAWARE THAT THEY ARE CARRIERS. THE CHILD WILL NOT WORRY ABOUT GENETIC DISEASES IT SHOULD INCREASE LIFE SPAN OF CHILD BY A BIGGER PERCENTAGE COMPARED TO A CHILD WITH NUTURALLY BORN WITH A GENETIC DISORDER. ...read more.

Conclusion

Many people have reasons on why they think genetic screening is good or bad, from moral and religious points of view it will be interfering with gods work, and for some parents and health workers might find it good because they think it's a good process to get rid of diseases and unnatural births -e.g. two joint embryos, one leg bigger than the other. But I personally believe genetic screening is harsh and should be banned unless needed. I think this because if you have a newborn baby it deserves the right to live, but it will reach a curtain point were when the baby is born it will be hard to cure the baby or even take care of it due to medicine or expenses, so if it reaches those type of situations then the careers/parents of the baby should choose to screen their embryos. ...read more.
