    the differentially between gene therapy and gene enhancement. His argument fails because gene therapy and genetic enhancement is morally impermissible because its manipulation and destruction of embryos shows disrespect for human life and discrimination against people with disabilities. According to Walter Glannon, he argues that gene therapy must be distinguished from genetic enhancement. He states that there is a clear difference between both for the reason that gene therapy is morally acceptable

Initially gene therapy was envisioned for the treatment of genetic disorders, but is currently being studied in a wide range of diseases, including cancer, peripheral vascular

Genes control the proteins that help repair skin and bones, heal wounds and transport oxygen from the lungs and the rest of the body. When a person has recovered from a hereditary disease their genes are damaged or mutated and the production of certain proteins can be at dangerous levels or be blocked causing symptoms or be life threatening. Researchers try to treat

    Effects of Gene Therapy Imagine if there was a cure for cancer right at our fingertips… Gene therapy is attempting to achieve that goal by replacing a mutated gene, such as a cancer gene, with a healthier copy of it. However gene therapy is still very new in the medical field and as such comes with plenty of risks with one being that it may cause a tumor to grow. How can gene therapy act as a potential cure for cancer and what are the potential harms that can come out of treatment? Gene therapy is

This means that gene therapy can be used to replace a faulty gene or to introduce a new gene whose function is to modify the clinical course of a condition or to cure a problem in the gene (Refer to image 2). Image 1 shows how gene therapy is completed using an
