Why is genetic engineering such a controversial ethical issue?
This is a simple question: what was your favorite topic of this class and why?
America sends tons of rice and/or grain to nutritionally poor third world countries, to help with the malnutrition and starvation. There was a question posed once which had to do with genetically enriching the rice that we give to third world countries, with vitamin A, to prevent certain conditions agitated by malnutrition. This is always a question that must be considered with these new genetically enriched and grown foods. Do you think that we should genetically enhance food that we send to third world countries? What about the possible bad effects that this genetically enriched food could cause?
What should be done if there are no other resources? Should we consider the implications of this type of resource over the benefit? Please share your thoughts on these issues.
Discuss the use of biotechnology and genetic engineering for medical, environmental, legal, and pharmaceutical uses. What are the pros and cons to our society?
If an individual in a third world country could not live very long without nutritionally enhance rice, would you consider genetically enhancing the rice that America gives these countries, to contain Vitamin A to help prevent diseases suffered from malnutrition such as ricketts?

Carlianne: Genetic engineering, also called genetic modification, has become such a controversial ethical issue because it uses human techniques from biotechnology and bioengineering to modify an organism’s genetic makeup. One article I read that talked about why genetic engineering has become such a controversial ethical issue said “it is phenomenon that is completely incompatible with Mother Nature” (Chin 2009). This quote really stuck out to me because it made me really think about why there is such controversy and this sentence couldn’t be anymore accurate, ggenetic engineering is altering organisms DNA and changing it in a way the nature and normal mutations could never do. Scientist have been able to genetic modify both animals and plants. Genetically modified foods and plants have becomecontroversial because society does not know the long tern effects this foods will have on our society and the people eating them. While ggenetically modified foods are more widely accepted then ggenetically modified animals, there are still too man unknowns that are making people skeptical. Ggenetically modified animals have become an ethical issue because of multiple reasons. The main reason is because humans are manipulating animal DNA as if animals are property rather then there own individual self.
