A Great Step for Human Biology

The idea of growing a human brain even though it is miniature is an interesting topic for me because of the program I am currently in, Pure and Applied Sciences. The idea of scientist being able to start growing a human brain is really significant to understand the human brain which is still unknown to scientists. This means that the further that they grow a human brain in the laboratory the older it can get and the more we can understand the brain and the functions it has. This can also be the beginning of many other human organs being studied and one day used to replace the non-functioning organs.
Should scientist be allowed to grow human organs?
I think that it is a good idea for scientist to start the growth of human organs because it can explain a lot of unknown diseases to men. With the nine week old fetus, the scientists were able to discover new properties about rare diseases. Also, it can start the process of organ replacement for people who have organ deficits and would need a new organ to prevent death.
In contradiction, the idea of organ growth is an ideal people would not consider because they may think that the growth of human parts is unnatural. The idea of organ replacement can also be contradicted because many would suggest the start of biological human improvement would benefit those who can afford it.
Is it a possibility that we might use this power for more than research and try to perfect the human body?
