Ethical Issues on Genetically Modified Organisms: Bioethical Perspectives (Hsin-wen Chang )
In the beginning of the 21st century, the most important subject at international meetings in different countries was ecology ethics. When we discuss global problems, we consider problems such as melting ice caps, global warming and climate change. As a matter of fact, we should not discuss the problems of the earth, but what it’s masters are doing to it. The problems are not the phenomena that we are seeing, but the intentions in people’s hearts.

Research in bioethics has had a deep impact on people’s perspectives and ways of thinking. The first part of this article discusses the meaning and mission of modern bioethics, and asks what is “Modern Bioethics” ? What’s the relationship between bioethics and ecological ethics? The second part of this article discusses the topic of Genetic modified organisms (GMOs), and GMOs’ perspective of bioethics with four principles of bioethics.
