  1. 1. DESIGNER BABIES Gillian Johnson and Brittany Deyorgi Period 8
  2. 2. BASIC PRINCIPLES OF GENETICS <ul><li>How are traits controlled by dominant and recessive alleles? </li></ul><ul><li>When a dominant allele is present in a trait the dominant allele will always show the trait it is controlling, and it will mask the trait controlled by the ressceve allele. If there is no dominant allele present then the recessive allele controlling a trait will always show up. </li></ul><ul><li>How are traits controlled by co dominant alleles? </li></ul>
  3. 3. HUMAN GENOME PROJECT
  4. 4. GENETIC DISORDER
  5. 5. ARGUMENT 1 <ul><li>Designer Babies have some pros but mostly cons. Many ethicist have been arguing that altering an embryo's genetic blueprint to make a baby smarter, healthier, or prettier would defiantly destroy what it means to be human. Also there is a concern that genetically endowing children with selected traits will create a social divide between who can and cannot afford the procedure. Why have a designer baby and force them to be what you want them to be, perfect. Why can’t you just love them for who they will be? </li></ul>
  6. 6. ARGUMENT 2 <ul><li>Most people are not against designer babies because they want their baby to be, perfect. Designer babies can lead to making your baby smart. If we have more intelligent people they could discover new cures, find answers to questions, discover new objects, many other things. Also designer babies can help stop babies from getting ADHD, autism, down syndrome, tourette syndrome, and many more. </li></ul>
  7. 7. ARGUMENT 3 <ul><li>Most people in the world are against designer babies because they think it is very wrong to create a baby as you want it. I think it is wrong to create a designer baby because I think if a parent really loved their child they really wouldn’t have to change their image in any way shape or form, also a lot of people who are religious are against it because they believe it is against god because creating a baby is kinda like going against nature. </li></ul>
  8. 8. ARGUMENT 4 <ul><li>Designer babies have a lot of negative opinions to it, but it can be positive to some parents out there in this world who don’t want their kids to have the sickness or disease that they have in their genes that might effect the child. Also the designer baby project can help kids around the world from being teased or mistreated just for their disease or their disorder that might be in the genes of their family. That why the designer baby project might be good from some families. </li></ul>
  9. 9. CONCLUSION <ul><li>My partner and myself have concluded that we are con against designer babies. We think that not every kid needs to be perfect we all have problems and parents will have to except that. We also think that the parents don’t think about how the baby is going to feel when the baby finds out it was just an experiment or something like that. I and my partner agree that we feel it is against nature and god, and shouldn’t care how your baby is going to look because it is still your baby and you should love no matter what it does. That is what we think about designer babies. </li></ul>
