1. Developing genetic modification technologies such as CRISPR to combat against genetically descended disorders

Evaluating the Ethical and Societal Implications of the Advent of Artificial Wombs

The development of genetic modification technologies, particularly CRISPR, marks a significant advancement in the field of medical science, offering potential solutions to combat genetically inherited disorders. This cutting-edge technology allows for precise editing of DNA, providing the capability to correct mutations that lead to hereditary diseases. As CRISPR continues to evolve, it holds the promise of transforming the approach to treating and potentially curing a range of genetic conditions, revolutionizing healthcare and opening new avenues in personalized medicine.


The advent of artificial wombs raises complex ethical and societal questions, challenging traditional views on childbirth and parenthood. This technology, which allows for the gestation of a fetus outside the human body, presents potential benefits such as reducing risks associated with traditional pregnancies and providing new options for individuals unable to conceive naturally. However, it also sparks debates over the moral, legal, and social impacts, including concerns about the commodification of reproduction, changes in family dynamics, and the implications for women's rights and societal roles.
