The

Ethics

of

Engineering

Humans

by

Joel

Garreau,


In

this

podcast

we

listen

a

discussion

about

the

benefits

of

having

a

genetically

altered

body,

the

discussion

leads

them

to

question

what

will

happen

in

the

near

future,

and

some

of

the

questions

are:

what

will

happen

with

racism

if

everyone

is

geneticall
y

perfect.

Segregation

is

very

possible,

between

some

of

the

people

won’t

be

able

to

afford

to

have

a

genetically

altered

body,

the

ones

that

do

not

what

it,

and

the

ones

that

have

it.

Genetic
engineering will provide tools for parents to decide what trait
s they want

their kids to have, more intelligent, smarter, disease free and better looking.

Genetically

Engineering

a

'Perfect

Baby'

by

Ronald

Green


This podcast presents to us two different points of view, one promoting Genetic
engineering and the second telling us not to go that far. One of the mayor concerns of
this is that this process will only be available to people with a very higher economic
i
ncome and as in podcast #2 says this will start segregation between humans. Some
people are against it saying that its
not

morally correct to do so. And others want a better
life for their children.











Similarities Difference
s

1.

Both podcasts tell us
about the segregation that
genetic engineering will
create among the
humans.

2.

They both speak about the
benefits that we will have
if we have
our body
altered.

3.

In both of them

they

tell
us the importance of
genetic engineering and
that it will be a great
advantage in the near
future

1.

Podcast #1 talks about
government issues
the
other podcast dose not
speak anything of any
government.

2.

One of them focuses of
the present while the
other speak of both
present and future. Telling
us what is going to
happen

3.

One podcast speaks about
pills..that might help us
get smarter, taller,
you
nger. And they even
mentions a pill that can
cure ahlzymer witch is a
incurable sickness
