The notion i am going to présent is «  Idea of progress »

Today, scientific advancements are controlled by reflection and laws on bioethics; Science is rather free, it could in the near future to help save even more lives, it is necessary for the progress of man and is beneficial in many cases as in the fight against serious genetic diseases but this notion involves reflecting on life. It raises questions about what is positive or negative in the progress of science, because unfortunately the progress also involves risks such as the clonnage we can ask ourselves what are the promises and perils of biotechnology?

In the experiments I've seen, there are some that I found interesting while there are some that I found shocking.

We can say that biotechnology is necessary for the progress of man and is beneficial in many cases as in the fight against serious genetic diseases, or allows to help people who want to be parents, but can’t have children but questions on bioethics are necessary to avoid some abuses of progress that could cause a dehumanization of our society.
