  1. 1. Designer Babies Matt, Mrs. Martinez period 3
  2. 2. Genetic Disorders <ul><li>A genetic disorder is an abnormal condition that a person inherits through genes or chromosomes. </li></ul><ul><li>Genetic disorders are caused by mutations, or changes in a person’s DNA. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Basic Principles of Genetics <ul><li>Traits are controlled by dominant alleles when it is present. Recessive alleles are masked or covered up, when the dominant allele is present. </li></ul><ul><li>The alleles are both dominant and there are no recessive alleles. </li></ul><ul><li>A punnet square will show the possible allele combination in the offspring when the parent alleles are combined. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Human Genome Project <ul><li>The main goal of the Human Genome Project is to identify the DNA sequence of every gene in the human genome. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Argument 1 (con) <ul><li>Creating a designer baby would not be a good idea because you are destroying what it is to be human. </li></ul><ul><li>You would create the baby to be smarter, healthier, or prettier would make it perfect and no one is perfect. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Argument 2 (pro) <ul><li>Creating designer babies would be a good idea because it could save peoples lives. </li></ul><ul><li>Therapeutic cloning would help because you could create the clone to be healthy to cure different problems. You might need specific parts so you could create a baby with those specific things. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Argument 3 (con) <ul><li>Designer babies aren’t good because there are many religions that might protest against it. </li></ul><ul><li>Some religions think that designer babies would be a bad idea because we are abusing the power of god. Some religions also think that killing clones for their parts is cruel and a sin. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Argument 4 (pro) Designer babies are good because it can provide people with a family. If someone can not have babies they can have a designer baby instead. They can also create a designer baby to look like what ever they want such as a boy, or a girl, red hair, or brown hair.
  9. 9. Conclusion <ul><li>In conclusion designer babies are both good and bad. </li></ul><ul><li>They have many pro’s and con’s but they can be used in many different ways. </li></ul><ul><li>They can give people children or surgery parts. They can also be considered a sin or make the baby too perfect. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Works Cited I used CQ Researcher, Human genetics, and Infotrack in creating my project.
