Genetic engineering is one of the great scientific breakthroughs in recent history, but it's not without controversies. Should we push genetic research to its absolute limit, or does it need limitations? This program looks at the possible benefits of genetic engineering, such as the curing of hereditary diseases and the creation of better, more efficient crops. It also explores the potential issues that arise with this new technology - the questionable morality of cloning, and the controversy that surrounds stem-cell research for example. Students will hear both a secular and religious perspectives on the morality of intervening in nature at the most fundamental level.
