At the same time this small scene by Shelley reminds of a similar problem in the contemporary medicine – abortions, now a legal procedure in almost any country, once a severely prosecuted act.
All arguments in favor of abortions will never answer the main question: do people have the right to break the life they did not start?
This essay is not focused on discussing the pros and cons of it.
It just outlines that even scientists find it necessary to impose certain limitations to this sphere of research, “If cloning is undertaken, rigid controls will be mandatory.
As Shelly allegorically reminds the reader about the consequences – Being was eager to revenge for his lost bride.
Another possibility to draw line between and modern world is cloning.Shelley shows the reader that even the brightest scientific query may have dark side, which becomes visible after crossing the line.As Victor says, “None but those who have experienced them can conceive the enticements of science” (Shelley 50). And being seduced by unknown horizons scientists may lose the sense of reality and step too far in their desire to learn.Frankenstein started realizing that implications of his investigations might be unpredictable.By this Shelley warns that the ongoing chase for scientific discovery may lead to an unexpected destination point if not being controlled and judged by morality.Without rough control and organizations, such as the Recombinant Advisory Committee, which “reviews research proposals for ethical considerations” (Calverley 2001), the humanity may eventually slide down to a world where babies are ordered and created upon a designer’s sketch.With scientific development ethics suffer, which is leading to alterations in beliefs and standards. French Anderson, professor of biochemistry, molecular biology and pediatrics, says, “If you let the standards gradually erode, good people can do evil things” (Celverley 2001).The author tried to reveal the boundaries to which science can exceed ethics.This essay proves that the novel has a tremendous meaning in assessing a contemporary medical research.Can science or medicine be used for killing humans since they were created to save lives?People can never know what price they will pay for intervention in the nature’s plans.
