CASE STUDY (20 Marks)

Jill has always had trouble focusing. In middle school and high school, she has struggled to maintain her attention on class, homework, and other academic responsibilities. If not for her own determination and the encouragement of her parents, she probably would have never gone to college as she does now. However, with midterms just around the corner, her inattentive tendencies are flaring worse than ever. And with poor grades after her first semester, she needs to do well on these tests to keep her GPA above her scholarship’s cutoff. Fortunately, a friend of hers, one familiar with Jill’s problems, has a prescription for Adder all and offers some to Jill so she can concentrate better during finals. Jill only plans to take the pills this one time considering summer is so near. She doesn’t think she’s getting an advantage because her peers can already focus better than she can. She really needs higher grades this semester to keep her scholarship.

Answer the following question.

Q1. Is it right using stimulants without a prescription? Comment.

Q2. Give your views on the case.

Scientists have created Britain’s first ‘virgin conception’ embryos using a technique that could yield a new source of stem cells, sparking a new ethical row. They were made without using sperm or any outside genetic material – making the clones of the women who donated the eggs involved. The news, from the centre that cloned Dolly the sheep, came just a day after Newcastle scientists who won the go a head to create a human embryo with two genetic mothers. It raises the concern that the same technique could be

used to produce a cloned baby. The team took eggs donated by women undergoing sterilization and stimulated them to start dividing, as if they had been fertilized. Some grew into embryos created without any addition of new genetic material, either from male sperm or a clone donor. Each embryo only contained about 50 cells which could never be used to make a baby. But scientists hope that in future, embryos made by the process – known as parthenogenesis – may be minded for valuable stem cells. Those taken from early embryos have the potential to become any part of the body, from bones to brains. Scientists hope in future they will form the basis of revolutionary new treatments for conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, and failing hearts. Dr.Paul de Sousa, who is leading the research, told the BA Festival of Science at Trinity College, Dublin: “At the moment, we have not managed to get stem cells from these embryos, and that continues to be our ambition.” He said the embryos would never be implanted into anyone’s womb. “We have consent for research purpose only.” Parthenogenesis has been suggested as a more ethically acceptable way of harvesting embryonic stem cells.
