Critical Analysis on Gattaca Clip
CRITICAL ANALYSIS ON GATTACA CLIP 1
According to Kass(2016) arguments, newborn screening and PGD are wrong. The conclusioncan be drawn from his affirmation that all people have a right tolife. He terms the human rights as essential to all. Kass (2016)states that through the years the moral society has always valuedhuman rights. Therefore, opposes the ideas of aborting a geneticallydefective fetus. Kass (2016) also argues that the practices canresult in a society that discriminates people along genes.
Agreeing to Purdy’s(2015) ideas, she would term the newborn screening and PGD depictedin the film right. Purdy’s (2015) analyses the thoughts ofconception and abortion basing on genetic information and morality.She finally asserts that those who term abortion legal can seek forprenatal screening and selective abortion. Purdy (2015) claims thatthe probability of reproducing children in war-torn zones is low.Therefore, couples should employ genetic factors in reproducingchildren. She also says that people with degenerative diseases shouldavoid getting pregnant if they are not ready for an abortion.Finally, Purdy’s (2015) terms screening as a way of preventingdegenerative disorders.
Through criticalanalysis, one agrees that Davis would term the newborn screening andPGD depicted in the film right. She compares several levels of rightspossessed by children and adults. Davis asserts that there are somerights reserved for the children till they become adults ("GattacaClip", 2017). She argues that clinicians face many dilemmaswhile seeking solutions that favors both the child and the parent.Therefore, screening and PGD can make it easier in preventingdegenerative disorders.
I would considerboth the PGD and newborn screening wrong. A moral society shouldaccept all possible health situations among the unborn. According tothe principle of justice, there should be fairness in all situations.The principle aims equality through all times whether plenty orscarcity. Therefore, conducting tests on the unborn undermines theirprivileges.
