Future Crime Scenario

1 . Introduction

This is seeks to analyze to discuss and to answer given questions the following case facts : A doctor has applied for a patent on new technology involving use of advanced computers to create a new type of organism . One of the goals of his research is to genetically improve these organisms for use in human organ growth and transplant . The doctor says that if he is not granted a patent , he intends to continue his work either in the United States or overseas ‘ The questions that [banner_entry_middle]

need to be answered included the following (1 ) should this activity be a violation of the law , a deviant act , or of the above (2 ) Is this research an abuse of technology (3 ) If this kind of activity is a violation of the law or should be , how can it be stopped , especially if the doctor goes overseas (4 ) Are there victims of this type of crime (5 ) Should developers of new technology be required to have their innovations screened before they are developed (6 ) Are there other strategies that might be used to allow society time to evaluate new technology before it is implemented

2 . Questions and Answers

2 .1 . Should this activity be a violation of the law , a deviant act , or of the above Before we have to answer we need to classify where new technology applies , whether human cloning (Wikipedia , 2007 ) or therapeutic cloning SAASTA (n .d ) classified cloning as follows

It is the first one (reproductive type ) that is not allowed by many countries . SAASTA (n .d ) said , Due to the fact that genetic differences are likely to exist between a clone and its donor . This uncertainty has led to many countries banning the reproductive cloning of humans

Based on the case fact that one of the goals of his research is to genetically improve these organisms for use in human organ growth and transplant , it is submitted that what we have as subject of analysis is therapeutic cloning which seems to not a violation of the law . Since the violation of law is jurisdictional , meaning it depends upon the country and the case facts speak of US doctor , there is also basis to say that there is no violation of the law . This conclusion is share by SAASTA (n .d ) when it said , In the United States there is no public funding for research on embryonic stem cells . Therefore , although there is no law against therapeutic cloning in the US , there is almost no public research happening due to the lack of money and access to the embryonic… [banner_entry_footer]
