Essay: Is Stem Cell Research Moral

Sample Essay

On the contrary, the cells from Embryonic Stem Cell research belong to the bodies of embryos and thus they most of the times form tumors or are even rejected by the recipient as foreign tissues. This implies that the embryo’s life can be terminated in efforts of saving the life of a grown up and even end up causing more problems than before. It should be noted that the cell comes from an embryo whose boy is growing rapidly and thus it is not easy for these cells to match with the cells of an adult who is growing very slowly (Andrews et al 1528). The setting of the origins of these two sets of cells is very diverse.

Essay: Natural Human Development Process

Sample Essay

Researchers have also come up with a new technique in which the human egg divides without fertilization although it is not fertilized. With this technique, the new being develops just like it does in the natural human development process and therefore the process is just the same as that of cloning in which human beings are developed by scientific means. This finds the researcher to have taken God’s responsibility of creating and thus the whole process is immoral as people want to be like God or even try to challenge him. Further, after the new technique, the result develops just like human beings and thus the termination of their lives is immoral and against the wishes of God.  The researcher can thus be argued to have committed a very serious crime against God to be a creator and a murderer.

Essay: Side Effects of Genetically Modified Organisms

Sample Essay

For example, “monarch butterfly caterpillars do not consume corn but they feed on milkweed”. (Free news service on Ag-Biotech, GMOs, & Food Security in Africa. 2009 available online) When pollen from GM corn is blown to milkweed on neighboring farms the caterpillars consume it and end up dying.

Essay: Transferring Funds through the use of Mobile Phones

Sample Essay

One’s ability to gain access to a required service plays an important role in the use of mobile funds transfer. (Pagani 2004) By March 31, 2009 M-pesa agents across the country had reached the 8,650 mark across the country. This had gone a long way in bringing the service closer to the people. (Annual report, 2008/2009) A hypothesis of easy accessibility results to high usage was created for this research. Of paramount importance to note is that transferring funds through the use of mobile phones is cheaper than using banks methods. (Omwansa, 2009) Because of this many people are attracted to this service since it is faster and cheaper too. Convenience is another aspect that customers look upon to when they are choosing a new technology.
