TOPIC I: The ethical threat of genetic engineering, editing and cloning.

Genetic engineering is a process that alters the genetic structure of an organism by either removing or introducing DNA. It could potentially fix severe genetic disorders in humans by replacing the defective gene with a functioning one but playing with humanity’s genetic code could open a Pandora’s box. Scientists will eventually be able to alter DNA not just to protect against disease but also to create genetically enhanced human beings.

TOPIC II: The question of abortion law, its ethics, legality and consequences.

Abortion is the ending of a pregnancy by removal or expulsion of an embryo or fetus before it can survive outside the uterus. Abortion has been a controversial subject in many societies through history on religious, moral, ethical, practical, and political grounds. It has been banned frequently and otherwise limited by law. However, abortions continue to be common in many areas, even where they are illegal.
