After defining how germline gene editing through the use of CRISPR-Cas9 technolo


After defining how germline gene editing through the use of CRISPR-Cas9 technology differs from somatic gene theory, please discuss some questions of ethical import that germline gene editing provokes. What do you make of the ethical consequences of germ-line editing via CRISPR-Cas9 technology? Are there safety concerns? Concerns about playing God with our common genetic inheritance? Concerns about irreversible changes? Are there better (or different natural) routes to arrive at the intended outcomes? How should it be regulated, and who should be in charge? Should we make a distinction between cosmetic and necessary changes? Are we in favor or removing alleles or adding alleles as well; is there a difference; should we use it not just to eliminate disease but make enhancements? could one society’s moral inhibitions effectively hand over the future of CRISPR to other societies? are there morally relevant differences in the edits we do to plants as opposed to non-human animals as opposed to humans? under what conditions, if any, should gene drives be used; who are the stakeholders who get to regulate the use of gene drives? how can society set priorities for the development of CRISPR-Cas9 technology? What I’m looking for is an argument about some of the ethical questions that the use of this technology forces us to answer. I am looking for about 7 pages. Please make liberal use of Professor Doudna’s cowritten book. Greely readings are not required, but will probably save you a whole lot of time in the writing process as they will give you many lines of exploration for the paper. .doc file | Essay | 7 pages, Double spaced
