The science of genetics seems to offer many promises within the next few years, however with these problems come ethical issues surrounding the research and its applications. Do the rewards outweigh the risks? Should any limits be placed upon genetic research? The science of genetics has expanded rapidly within the last few years. Many ethical dilemmas have arisen with the advancement of the science. In this paper I will use three different areas of genetic research to demonstrate the ethical issues involved within the research of the science: human cloning, pharmacogenetics, and genetic enhancement. I will use these issues to show why some limits should be placed in genetic research and how it is applied.
The prospect of human cloning has
