Essay 2 (20 points): Designer Babies? Not Just Science Fiction… Context: Last quarter, we analyzed the purpose of fictional monsters (to act as catharsis or an “outlet” for our real fears or ethical debates). This quarter, our readings have collectively worked to reveal how “real” our monsters are, and your last paper was used to respectfully and accurately organize what others have said. Your own opinion was not explained. For this next essay, we are stepping away from fiction to discuss a difficult scientific concept that many people call “monstrous.” You will have to consider human genetic engineering from multiple perspectives. Assignment: Write an essay in which you use 2 of the “ethical” rules below to defend Human Genetic Engineering before you use research of your own to decide whether or not the use of genetic engineering in humans is/isn’t problematic. Requirements:
● MLA format ● Intentional organization ● Incorporate a minimum of three sources — two of the three must be academic sources
○ Use quotations as salt, if at all. Summary/paraphrase are more helpful!
● Treat all people as an ends, not a means (i.e. respect them as humans) ● Do for them what you would want them to do for you ● Your attitude or personal feelings do not matter ● Do what is best for all – not just for yourself
