Genetic cloning is one of the most controversial topics of all time. People, specifically scientists, are constantly searching for ways to improve the quality of human life. As a result, they began genetically engineering animals and are currently in search of a method to genetically engineer humans as well; which is called human cloning. There are many reasons why people should not go forward with this step since genetic cloning, consequently human cloning, does not respect nature nor does it ensure diversity and survival in natural ecosystems. In addition, genetic cloning is a cruel, harsh, and an unsafe experiment.
Transition: So far, you have learned about how animal cloning affect the animal health, biodiversity, and the quality of the livestock. Now let me tell you a little bit on what problem we came across when persuading people that animal cloning is bad.
Cloning is bad in many ways. Cloning causes much suffering because either the mother or the baby is most likely going to die. When scientists try to clone 95% of the time the cloning is a failure. Cloning also costs a lot of money to do it just one time. It is also very time consuming and difficult to do.
When genetic diversity is reduced we all know that organisms may have genetic defects and they may suffer from inherited diseases. Also reduced genetic diversity will also cause the animal to die because most of the organism has the same genes and DNA. Cloning humans should not also allowed because of this but also it because it is going against nature
Cloning is done when a cell is replicated by using asexual reproduction and turns out to be the exact same as the host. Most people believe that cloning is very harmful and weird, while some believe that cloning is good for the environment and, it helps the world become very successful. I believe that cloning is horrible because it causes large offspring syndrome, has a very high failure percentage, has unknown consequences, the economy is affected poorly, causes an abnormal population increase, makes a non-diverse population, clones are socially unaccepted, it destroys the value of life and family, it causes diseases to spread, it causes premature aging, provides security issues for people, and increases the abuse of cloning.
Cloning is bad because the clone will carry on abnormalities and desisses from the first person, effecting the future generations. Another reason its bad is because no one knows what could go. The possibilities of what could go wrong are endless. Clones lives are majorly impacted due to the fact that they are clones. Overall cloning has negitive impact in this world. The world will be a better place if you agree with me and put an end to the unnsesasary idea of
There is also overpopulation. If cloning is widely done than that can lead to overpopulation of animals. If there is an overpopulation and animals that means that people may be driven from natural resources. Without natural resources we can't make more clones because all the other clones you made will be eating everything that the new clones are trying to make will need. if we clone humans then there is a great chance of those humans reproducing, then those children of the Clones will reproduce and there will be a larger population which will mean we will have to put laws on having children and on making clones. in conclusion clones are bad thing if we want to keep the Earth's resources and we don't want
While there appears to be many advantages for the continuation of cloning research, there are other drawbacks that may negatively impact the society in the future. Cloning may reduce genetic variability by producing populations that have the same genetic make-up. This population would be susceptible to the same diseases and could potentially be wiped out by a single strain of virus. Such a result could be catastrophic and devastate entire nations. Cloning in human would inevitably lead to testings on human subjects and genetic tailoring of offspring. It is plausible that scientists could alter genetic coding to produce a baby with desirable traits resulting in a ‘perfect human’ with heightened senses and sub-normal intelligence. There have been no occurrences to
As soon as you mention the word cloning, you are most likely to ignite a debate. This is because people are greatly divided on whether it's good or bad. A way to reach a conclusion is to look at cloning from ethical, risk, and religious perspectives. The reality is, cloning is unethical, very risky, and irreligious. The arguments I will make will hopefully convince you that cloning is not good for the future.
Cloning is inhumane and unethical because it creates animals and embryos that will be used for painful research experiments. Additionally, a painful surgery is required to remove the eggs from the breeding stock and implant the embryos back into them. Also, a good deal of the animals that survive past infancy have abnormalities and health problems that include respiratory distress, brain lesions, metabolic problems, skeletal malfunctions, and
In conclusion I believe that cloning is a bad thing to do to any living organism on this earth . I believe that cloning is considered animal abuse but it still happens . I believe it is domestic violence , but it still happens , and quite a few animals have died because of it . I knew about cloning but i have never researched it . But learning and researching about cloning helped me better understand that it is a bad thing to do to any living organism .
Reproductive cloning could also be abused by people who want to create genetically superior children. Using reproductive cloning you could clone the world’s greatest athletes and geniuses. As crazy as it sounds, this would open up the door to future possibilities of a world where genetic discrimination is the norm like in the movie GATTACA.
In regards to animal safety the genetic abnormalities can be quite harmful. The numbers of genetically modified animals have dramatically increasing in the last 20 years. Mice and other poor animals are being bred specifically to have genes taken out or cells inserted. Tests are miles away from tests to help animals to many animals dying. Because when they are babies because of cruel people thinking that's it is ok to make animals that have ears on their backs, trying to make their own animals from poor defenceless rabbits, cats, dogs, mice, rats, primates, and so many more. These people are trying to play god and they must be stopped.
Cloning is a controversial topic because new areas of science often raise questions about safety. Early experiment performed on animals showed potential dangers. For example, cloned cows developed faulty immune systems. In some studies, cloned animals seemed to grow old faster and die younger than normal members of the species. According to Encarta online
Cloning has been around for years from 1938 by Hans Spemann to 1997 when Dolly the cloned sheep was made. Why should we care that cloning is bad? Cloning can have many complications before in the womb, during, and after. Why should we take those risks? The cost of cloning is obviously not a what an average Joe makes.
