The Principal of family determination in organ donation
This article is written by Mingxu wang,, Wen zang, Xueliang Wang. In this article the point which is stressed upon is that wether family should be given the right to give consent for organ donation of a person if he himself has not stated any statement regarding his will on organ donation. Many ethical views of different societies are discussed, especially the Chinese including the Confucians. Some cases are also explained at the end in which the families of the dead are taking decision about the organ donations. Other problems relating to this matter are also highlighted.

He has more respect for human lives than anyone else. He has the courage to give his organs to another person and save lives even after his death. We should encourage the relatives to decide in favour of organ donation but do not force them as it is totally their decision.

The Ethics of Patenting Human Embryonic Stem Cells
In this article ethical issues regarding embryonic stem cell patenting have been discussed. There are many benefits of embryonic stem cell patents madically and scientifically however this has caught the attention of various ethical committees. Many ethical controversies have aroused. This article has many sections and in each section various issues regarding an introduction to ambryonic stem cell field, its feasibility, many ethical concerns which were produced, its scientific benefits and the solutions to the problems.
The research regarding the experimentation of embryonic stem cells has its own benefits and consequences. The benefits are mostly related to medical and scientific fields. But it also comes with cerain adverse effects which affect mainly the human dignity. Processes such as cloning can also benefit humans as in donating organs but it also disregards the existence of humans. It devalues them and people will start taking human lives for granted.
In my opinion the embryonic stem cell patenting should be allowed but a strict control and check and balance should be maintained. The laboratories or the institutes which are allowed to experiment on this should be kept under survilance. Specials teams should be set up to monitor their work so that only the benefits are taking place and the adverse effects are contolled.
This research can bring a huge change in the field of medicine.It can generate organs which are not readily available such as heart and lungs and help save lives of many people. It can also help to understand the genetic mutations in humans in a better way.

This article is written byJeeffery P kahan, Anna C mastroianni. In this article a story is detailed about the Nash family in which they try to produce an embryo which is free of the disease which their child has in order to get the stem cells.
Various ethical issues are discussed which are implicated in this experiment. It also gives certain inmplications at the end and the solutions regarding the problems.
The Nash family wanted a donor for their child and the most acceptable donors are the siblings as they have almost the same genetic makeup. As there were no siblings the parents decided to create one. This is where PGD comes in. This allows the detection of any genetic defect in the embryo at the eight cell stage and prevents the destruction of the fetus. However if an embryo is detected to have the bad gene then it is easier to destroy as compared to the fetus.
In my opinion PGD is a good option, but if the embryo has the wrong gene then I...
