Free-will Eugenic: Finally you have Choices (February 7, 2009)

 

            Eugenic is the elimination of undesired embryos, malformed babies, unwanted babies or undesired grown ups for one reason or another.

 

All that parents need to know on the condition of a fetus of six weeks is a drop of blood from the mother.  The mother blood carries cells transferred from the fetus and all the necessary information can be obtained from a single cell.  A wide array of diseases of physical and cognitive natures, whether curable or incurable, can be diagnosed at six weeks of the fetus. A sample of these diseases is: sterility, mongolism (Down syndrome), Elephantine, blindness, deafness, metabolic deficiencies, epilepsy, mental retardation, cancer (ovary, breast, colon, and prostate), neurological, Alzheimer, and anxiety to name a few. Consequently, the parents are strong with the following facts:

 

 First, would the baby be normal or not.

Second, if the baby is normal would he develop grave physical or mental illnesses in the short or long term?

Third, would the sane baby develop at his adulthood incurable illnesses such as cancer or Alzheimer?

 

Parents have now sound facts on the preconditions of the fetus and they can make bold choices for an abortion before the fetus is legally considered a human with all the legal and social complications.  One day, you might have to decide or be asked to contribute your opinion as a family member then answer the following questions by selecting a disease from the array that I have already mentioned:

 

If the fetus is surely to die immediately after birth then would you abort?

 

If the fetus would look physically sane but mentally retarded then would you keep him and shoulder the responsibility of caring for him throughout your life?

 

If the fetus would turn physically handicapped but mentally sane then what is your decision?

 

If the fetus would turn out sane physically and mentally for the first three years before a physical handicap develop then what is your decision?

 

If the fetus would turn sane physically and mentally for the first three years before a mental handicap develop then what is your decision?

 

If the fetus would turn sane physically and mentally for the first ten years before a mental or physical handicap develop then what is your decision?

 

If the fetus would turn sane physically and mentally for the first 20 years before a mental handicap develop then what is your decision?

 

If the fetus would turn sane physically and mentally for the first 40 years before a mental handicap develop then what is your decision?

 

You now have choices; failure to decide is a choice, a stupid one.

 

Note: If you give birth to an abnormal baby with full knowledge of the consequences then you still have to deal with the attitudes of the grown up baby when he is told the facts.  The adult might hate you forever or separate from the family or lead an introverted life or whatever.  The array of later psychological consequences is in the hundreds.

Cloning therapy: not a science fiction (January 29, 2009)

This is no longer the realm of science fictions: you can repair any sick organ with cloning parts and if you are rich you can extend your life to 150 years.  We don’t need male sperms to clone a complete entity, human or animal.  We don’t need a female nucleus in eggs to clone a complete entity, human or animal.  Soon, we won’t need female eggs; labs would be able to manufacture the “pouch” or envelop of the female egg.  It is going to take some time before human invest on research to circumvent female uterus for incubating fetuses during nine months.  There are human clones on earth. 

Italian gynecologist Severino Antinori announced publicly in 2003 that he has cloned three babies; he was forced to recant and moved his business to Ukraine.  There are many professional institutions cloning human, for a price, after they have been cloning favorite pets of the rich and famous.  No State or institution is about to go public on human cloning; they don’t have to, they just do it.

Let us examine the protocol for clone fertilization which is very close to cloning spare parts.  First phase, a female egg is removed; its nucleus, which contains the genetic instructions, is extracted. A male non-sexual cell (generally taken from the skin) is treated to extract its nucleus (containing the DNA) and implanted in the de-nucleated egg.  Let me remind you that the cell can belong to the same female person of the ovary and it would work equally well!  The new egg contains all the DNA information of the donor.

Phase two: A special cocktail of electric shocks and chemicals aid the cell to regress to a primordial cell that replicates.   Phase three is the process called “blastocyst” that can generate either an embryo for fertilization or the production of specialized spare parts of the various organs such as kidney, liver, heart muscle, or even hair.

Phase four cultivates the different organs by immersing the cell “souche” in a “soup” of proteins and enzymes to normally develop and then be transplanted to the sick donor in order to repair the failing organ.

Three main obstacles for assuring complete success have already been conquered. The first hurdle was taming the chaotic replication of cells; the second problem was the immunological aspect where virulent tumors developed in reproduced cells; and the third problem was the longevity of the organ due to the atrophy of the telomeres.

China, Britain, and the USA are publicly leading the research on cloning therapeutic spare part organs but they are the tip of the iceberg; many specialized institutions in Asia, Turkey, Israel, and India are working full time.
