In the mid-1970s, the whole world was astonished by the new assertion that scientists   had discovered a new way to move genetic materials from one species the other which enabled them to improves or come up with new species. According to scientists, this method presented a new way to improve animal and plant species. Apart from this, the new technology or genetic engineering was an ultimate answer to a number of diseases and would also lead to increased food supplies, help in development of inexpensive medicines, and possibly provide cure for some untreatable diseases.  On the other hand, opponents argue that this was a recipe for unstoppable plagues and other environmental disasters. Like any scientific process, there are important ethics which must govern its operations.  Supporters and opponents of genetic engineering had sharp divisions regarding the basic ethics and morality of the new technology same as they were regarding the practical implications of the technology.
