Bio ethics and Regulation

Bioethics is the application of ethics to the field of medicine and healthcare. It is also moral discernment as it relates to medical policy, practice, and research. The Term “bioethics” was first coined in 1971 (some say by University of Wisconsin professor Van Rensselaer Potter; others, by fellows of the Kennedy Institute in Washington, D.C.), it may have signified merely the combination of biology and bioscience with humanistic knowledge. Bioethics is the study of the typically controversial ethical issues emerging from new situations and possibilities brought about by advances in biology and medicine. Bioethicists are concerned with the ethical questions that arise in the relationships among life sciences, biotechnology, medicine, politics, law, and philosophy. It also includes the study of the more commonplace questions of values ("the ethics of the ordinary") which arise in primary care and other branches of medicine. The scope of bioethics can expand with biotechnology, consisting of cloning, gene therapy, life extension, human genetic engineering, astroethics and life in area, and manipulation of fundamental biology thru altered XNA, RNA and proteins.
