"The effects of Designer Babies on the Society"
Initially, the term designer babies were not a common term in people’s minds since it was not clear as to how a baby can be designed according to the descriptions of the parents. However, with the introduction of biotechnologies, there has been the widespread issue of genetically engineered babies (Bliss 54). This is the concept of designer babies, just like designer clothes are made upon descriptions and characteristics of the client. Through genetic engineering, experts are now able to study the genetics in an individual and come up with a baby who possesses those characteristics in the laboratory. These are called ‘test tube babies’ or the designer babies (Abarado 34). The world has seen wonders through the discovery of child designing mechanisms and chroning. Fertilization of female eggs is done in a test tube under special conditions designed to provide an environment that looks like that of a woman’s womb. The question that is left unanswered is whether it is ethical to manipulate human life, and to look the way one want through the use of technology. Thesis: The biotechnology discovery is indeed excellent, but a few concerns stand in its way, which include high costs of engineering a baby, having different species that may cause various social implications, and facing human biases, since people will be choosing the unique character traits, as well as physical traits for the babies they want to be designed for them.
