Biological Science 004 Assignment #5, pg 399 “Selecting Children” 1. I do not think that there is a perfect answer to this question. It is unethical on one hand because the human is being created to treat another human and that is the child’s sole purpose. In this creation though, the child is saving a life with is a very wonderful thing. The Nash family is a great poster child for the cause. I think that if all cases were like this that it would be a wonderful advancement that modern technology and medicine has made. Unfortunately, I think that this procedure would be used to create the ideal child which is “playing God.” If this happens, it is unethical. 2. I do not think that anybody has a moral obligation to compensate this child. The client would have to seek monetary reimbursement from the responsible party, primarily being his parents. They gave him life, therefore I do not feel that any additional compensation is necessary in this case because I do not see how it would “make the client whole again” which is the goal of a civil law suit.

Unformatted text preview: 3. I think that the cells from an aborted fetus would be a much better option because the fetus will just go to waste if it is not used. If the fetus’ cells were used to help save someone, at least the fetus’ “life” would have served a helpful purpose. I think this option is the better solution instead of creating even more unintended life. 4. I personally would not donate my eggs to a couple who could not have children. I would not want any biological children of mine out there that I did not create. I would feel that he couple was “using” the child for selfish purposes. I would also be concerned that they would use the eggs for other scientific purposes like creating some kind of clone. I would also be concerned that the eggs would be fertilized and then experimented on. The main reason I would not donate my eggs is not that they might use the unborn child to cure a disease, but mainly I just would not want any biological children in this world that are not my own....
