Genetic engineering may be one of the greatest breakthroughs in recent history however, with scientific advancements, new ethical issues are raised, forcing us to ask not how but if we should push genetic research to its absolute limit. This program looks at the possible benefits of genetic engineering, such as the treatment and possible cure of hereditary diseases and the creation of better, more efficient crops. It also explores the potential issues that arise with this new technology - the questionable morality of cloning, and the controversy that surrounds stem-cell research are two topics which are also investigated. Students will hear both secular and religious perspectives on the morality of intervening in nature at the most fundamental level.
