Part 2: Please respond to the following four (4) sets of questions:

2.1 Infertility On The Rise?

The first section of chapter 2 examines issues related to infertility and the technologies that have developed to manage it. Investigate with your class reasons for the rise in infertility in our present society. Has the declining birthrate and the rise in the number of couples who actively choose not to have children simply made us more sensitive to those couples with fertility problems? Were the estimates of infertility in the past inaccurately low because there were no services or advanced technology to help individuals and, therefore, no one spoke of their difficulties? Are there social and psychological factors that lead to infertility as well as the physical ones mentioned in the text? Is our society more stressful, and is fertility a result of this stress? Is there any relationship between changing gender roles for men and women and the rate of infertility?


2.2 The Availability Of Artificial Reproductive Technologies

With infertility rates at their highest recorded levels, the demand for access to modern reproductive technologies is also great. Explore with your students the ethical and socioeconomic concerns surrounding this issue. Currently, the procedures are expensive. Should they be made available only to those with the ability to pay for them? How much coverage should be provided by medical insurance? Should access be limited only to childless offspring? Should single individuals be allowed to use the modern technologies to sire or bear offspring? Who is liable if the baby conceived by way of modern technology has a birth defect?

2.3 Prenatal Tests and Down Syndrome

Until 2007, only pregnant women 35 and older were routinely tested to see if their fetuses had the extra chromosome that causes Down syndrome. However, under a new recommendation from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, doctors have begun to offer a new, safer screening procedure to all pregnant women, regardless of age.

Please visit the following link and read through the article: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=990CE6DA1731F93AA35756C0A9619C8B63&pagewanted=all

Do you believe the parents should be given the chance to continue or terminate the pregnancy at their own free will? Should more efforts be undertaken to educate people about the value of accepting children with Down syndrome?

 

2.4 Obesity

Science shows that genetics plays a role in obesity. Genes can directly cause obesity in disorders such as Bardet-Biedl syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome.

Please visit the following link and read through the article: http://obesity.ulaval.ca/obesity/generalities/genetic.php

Discuss with your students the steps would-be parents can take to protect their children from obesity.
