Princess Edema-Sillo's Argument about Embryo-screening
I think that embreyo-screening is a nice idea. What I like about embryo-screening is that you can use it for preventing a family history of dieseases. I also like embryo screening because you get to decide what you want your baby to look like. I mean, I wouldn't change my baby so much that it doesn't look like me. That would be insanity. I would do the embryo screening so that when I have babies, I would make sure to have one boy and one girl. I would also make both of them have nice, medium brown eyes, and dark brown hair (like mine)! Some people think that embryo screening is terrible and unacceptable. I can see why people have such opinions to opposing and disagreeing to the idea of embryo screening, which is also known as PGD. People hate PGD because it shows that the parents that are going to have the baby want to change how their baby would appear to be when it was born naturally. Also, PGD would can lead to a weird population for the world. For example, if everyone got PGD and chose to have a female baby, then it would be rare to have a boy or for there to be any males in the world. Also, PGD could accidently make a 'negative enhancement' such as blindness, deafness, or paralysis. But, that might happen if the parents practically ask for the baby within the embryo to have that kind of 'negative enhancement'. Another bad thing that could happen when doing PGD is that the docter could mess up during the procedure. The docter may accidentally select the wrong embryo to be taken out of the woven or they might've punctured the embryo, damaging the developing baby within it. I kind of like embryo screening, but only for the gender of my babies, the eye color of my babies, and the hair color. But, some people are so obsessed with PGD that they'll start adding some traits into their baby like athletic, smartness, or even strength. That's when the procedure with embryo screening goes too far. I'm in between the idea of having embryo screening or disapproving with it. It depends on how my future turns out and how docters are in the future. People should except the way their baby turns out even if you didn't do PGD. God made our babies special and that doing this procedure is just another way of man trying to make a goal to reach perfection for not only in themselves, but in their next generation of children & adults. Babies don't have to be perfect. Everyone is born special in their own ways and God made each of us unique in any way he thought we should be. I'm leaning close to the no side to PGD (embryo screening), but it's really something to hesitate and talk about.
