DNA sampling

Extracts from this document...


Should you have to provide a DNA sample to enroll in FCPS? There are many different opinions on whether people should provide a DNA sample to enroll in FCPS schools. Their opinions may be based on different ethics and privacy matters.

The other reason why I think DNA should be provided before enrolling in FCPS is that it can alert families if their child has some kind of disease or disorder. ...read more.


On the other hand, if the DNA showed that two brothers had too many differences in their DNA and that they weren't actually brothers, then this information would impact, and maybe ruin, their family. DNA sampling, in my opinion, is a very practical process since it can help the society in a great way. It can inform the family of some particular disease before it gets worse, help catch criminals and clear the blame off the innocents, and also reduce the amount of crime. I do think we should provide DNA samples to enroll in FCPS, but I also think we should get the right to keep the information to ourselves. Word Count: 484 ?? ?? ?? ??
