Victor’s mind was blinded by a contemplation of an outstanding scientific quest, thus he was not able to estimate potential consequences and the responsibility he was about to take.
Even his “child” Being says, “Oh, Frankenstein, be not equitable to every other and trample upon me alone, to whom thy justice, and even thy clemency and affection, is most due. As any creator, Victor feels the power and is eager to continue playing the dangerous game.
As Shelly allegorically reminds the reader about the consequences – Being was eager to revenge for his lost bride.
Another possibility to draw line between and modern world is cloning.
He is ready to create a bride for Being, “A new species would bless me as its creator and source; many happy and excellent natures would owe their being to me.
No father could claim the gratitude of his child so completely as I should deserve theirs” (Shelley 54).
Luckily, when the female creature was half ready, the scientist recognized one of the possible courses of events.
He destroys the female creature as he sees the potential danger in enabling a new form of life to multiply.
At the same time this small scene by Shelley reminds of a similar problem in the contemporary medicine – abortions, now a legal procedure in almost any country, once a severely prosecuted act.
All arguments in favor of abortions will never answer the main question: do people have the right to break the life they did not start?
