As with any new technology, there are social, ethical, and legal issues to take into consideration. In the development of gene therapy there have been a number of questions posed as to whether or not this type of treatment should be allowed. Your task is to research the social, ethical, and legal implications of using gene therapy to treat diseases and disorders. Write an opinion paper that will show you have thoroughly researched and reflected on this issue. Be sure to choose a particular disorder/disease to use as an example. You might consider these questions below. Who should decide how gene therapy will be used? Who decides what ‘normal’ is? Are disabilities and disorders something that needed to be cured or prevented? What are the possible side effects to gene therapy? Who decides whether the benefits outweigh the risks? Is it more ethical to use cells from adults as opposed to embryonic cells in gene therapy research?
