Topic A: Stem Cell Research, Cloning, and Genetic Engineering
You may focus on one or more of the following questions. Do you think that scientists should be give free rein to use every kind of stem cell for research? Should a person have an automatic “patent” on their genetic code? Should we pursue human cloning and genetic engineering to the maximum of our technological ability? Are there ethical limitations on science in any of these areas, and what is the ethical argument for that limitation?
