Bio-Genetics Helps with Childbirth
Biogenetically engineering the germ cells before actual childbirth can be beneficial to the children. Using a process of selecting cells that don't have certain deadly genetic disorders passed down from the parents and then implanting them back in the mother, the children will be born healthy. Setting out to change the probability of having deadly disorders is the main objective.
As for the actual childbirth, genetic engineering has also successfully allowed infertile couples to have healthy children.
3-D Organ Printing
With 3-D organ printing scientists and doctors now have the ability to print organs by using human cells and tissues. With this people are able to receive organ transplants sooner because the organs are being created. 3-D printing also allows a wider variety of people to have organ transplants given to them because of the easier access 3-D printing gives them. Just like with organs, the 3-D printer can also make prosthetic limbs using human tissue which makes the new limbs look more real than the "robotic limbs". 3-D printing also helps with aesthetic functions such as facial pieces, ears, noses, etc. This is becoming so advanced that new body parts can be printed and look nearly identical as the parts on their faces that were missing. 3-D printing helps the medical field in giving their patients organs, prosthetic limbs, and more, faster.
