    Biotechnology.

    I have an English assignment, to generate an opinion on biotechnology, personally I agree with it's advancements and elimination of disability, after reading an incredibly biased article in the listener..

    What do you guys think about this?

    Disabled people say it's rude to them, or it's a bad thing for people to find out if they have Huntingtons disease, all about ethics.

    If they don't want to use it, then they don't have to. But that won't stop me from using it if I, or someone I'm related to, has something that can be treated by this technology. I'm not the kind of person that is so prideful it's arrogant, or one that believes God will cure me and humans can do nothing.

    :/ how is it rude? Isn't it giving them more ability?

    If they were tested against their will, i could see that, but simply having options for a new arm is pretty much a-ok.

    :/ not really much of a subject to debate.

    Do we advance medical technology, or do we let God heal us?

    I've known some people who try the God thing, although really its just for minor problems.
    -------------------
    Tell your teacher that waiting for God to heal you is nice, but let modern medicine help in the meantime.
