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
Time is an ally, allowing for the accrual of further data from animal experiments, an assessment of the prospective safety and efficiency of the procedure in humans, and a period of fuller national debate on ethical and social concerns. If cloning is to be implemented sometime in the near future, all these issues must be
Today’s technology develops so quickly that many impossible things become true; the example is cloning technology. Cloning is a process used to create an exact copy of a mammal by using the complete genetic material of a regular body cell. Different from the common propagate, cloning needs only one cell and without sex. Cloning, as of recent years, has become a very controversial issue in society but cloning can have several positive effects for the well being of society. Many people in society believe that scientists should develop a clone human but many people and especially the government are against human cloning. Hundreds of
With the development of science, cloning has become possible. Some cloning has been used to help benefit the human race; in some ways the environment and other species. However, other cloning uses could cause many problems such as a disadvantage in intelligence, strength, and who would be acceptable to obtain what jobs.
The cloning of humans is now very close to reality, thanks to the historic scientific breakthrough of Dr. Ian Wilmut and his colleagues in the UK. This possibility is one of incredible potential benefit for all of us. Unfortunately the initial debate on this issue has been dominated by misleading, sensationalized accounts in the news media and negative emotional reactions derived from inaccurate science fiction. Much of the negativity about human cloning is based simply on the breathtaking novelty of the concept rather than on any real undesirable consequences. On balance, human cloning would have overwhelming advantages if regulated in a reasonable way. A comprehensive ban on human cloning by a misinformed public would be a sorry
Cloning: is it the future of medicine and the curing of diseases or is it the beginning of an unholy tragedy? Cloning needs to be looked into for the fact it could help save many people 's lives. Before I decided to study the subject I had no idea how much cloning could help us as the human race. Cloning is a very promising field of study and could hold the key to the future of what it means to be human.
The advancement of technology has allowed us to do things that were once never possible. From the first computer to now having laptops and tablets. The first mobile phone which has now branched off to smart phones and even watches that can mimic the same functions of a cellular device. With the internet being more advanced, we now have the ability to access it from our televisions, smart TV’s have enhanced our viewing experience to the ultimate extreme. There is no telling what the future will hold as far as technology goes but what about when begin to use technology to clone ourselves? Of course we are aware of the cloning of animals with Dolly the sheep for an example. It is inevitable for someone to eventually
At one point in every person’s life there is always a time crunch. Many people often say, “Man, I wish I could be two places at once! Life wouldn’t be such a rush then.” These people are referring to an exact copy of themselves, a clone. Clones are organisms that are exact genetic copies. Every single bit of their DNA is genetically identical to the original organism (What is Cloning?). When thought about, cloning an organism sounds like something out of fiction books. In reality, it is very simple. Take an egg cell from a donor, change the nucleus to one donated by the ‘clonee’, and give it to the surrogate mother. Bam, an exact replica. A question is, however, if it is that easy to clone something, why don’t we do it all the time? The answer is, laws prevent this, but an even bigger setback is that it is against most human beliefs, that it is immoral. Most ideas for cloning are pretty gruesome; farms of clones donating organs for transplants. Providing stem cells for people who cannot make their own. Testing medicine on them instead of humans. No wonder people classify this as ‘unethical.’ Although this is outlawed and as bad as it seems, this could be a real advance in human society (ironic, because cloning is considered inhumane). Life spans could
The cloning of a sheep named Dolly in 1997 sparked a large-scale international debate about the future of the process of creating genetically identical individuals known as clones. New questions needed to be addressed now on a legislative level that were never an issue beforehand. Is it possible to clone human beings? Is it ethical to produce human clones? Is it helpful for science or feasible? Currently, there are two forms of cloning available for science. The first is therapeutic cloning which involves the cloning of human embryos for the purpose of studying and advancing science with the expressed goal of harvesting stem cells for research (Human Genome Project Information, 2008).
According to Laurence C Smith, “Due to the potential advantages for pharmaceutical companies, farmers, and research agencies, mammalian cloning is likely to become a common technology towards the end of this decade.” In the future there will be many medical and technological advancements that will further the process of cloning. It is only a matter of time before it is fully mastered and engineered. This quote supports my statement because it provides evidence that further experimentation on cloning could be achieved in a mass amount. The cloning process could be able to reproduce either human or animal organs for someone or something in dire need of a new organ. Quoted from a man called Steven Best in his article “Biotechnology, Ethics, and the Politics of Cloning”, he stated “Scientists argue that therapeutic cloning has tremendous medical potential, early in life, for example; each individual could have their own ‘body repair kit’ if they have developed a disease or even lost a
The year is 2020. You are walking down the street and you see your friend. You give your friend a wave and continue with your walk, but then you pass by your friend again. This makes you turn around, you think your head is playing games on you. But when you turn around there is not one, but two of the exact same people standing in front of your eyes. This is an example of what cloning can be in the future. People one day will be able to create another version of themselves or someone else. Cloning does not just apply to creating whole humans, but also discusses the attempt to create new cells to help cure different diseases. Science and religion often clash, and in this situation they do through majority of the religions.
With the current tests on the cloning of animals, it shows that, even with the small chance that they do survive birth, many of the test subjects were born with abnormalities and unhealthy diseases, and died early in their lives (Jaenisch 2787). According to a survey in an article done by Joshua May, “in 2014 that only 13% of Americans believe cloning human beings is generally ‘morally acceptable’” (26). Manali Oak, an author for Buzzle.com, states that the cloning of the human race may slowly cause a change in how people evolve and adapt since the human body will no longer need to build immunities or be hardened by the toughness in nature (3). He believes cloning would provide the opportunity for the human race with the ability to cure anything and avoid sickness, which would leave humans defenseless if a situation arises and cloning is unavailable for use (3).
How would you like to have another you? No, not an identical twin but another person who is actually 100% you? Would the idea fill you with delight or horror?. As a genetic engineer as well as a senior researcher at the University of Adelaide I am terrified from where the research of cloning human would end up?. Human cloning also known as the creation of a genetically copy of a human, infect cloning is the creation of an organism that has an exact genetic copy of another. Since the cloning of Dolly the Sheep in 1997, research of human cloning has been on the edge of the seat. It brings many benefits including, elimination of the birth defects, through manipulate the embryos gene to remove the birth defect and provide them a healthier life. However, it will bring numerous disadvantages into the world that over shadows its benefits including, everyone not being able to afford it due the expense, individuality of the cloned person is destroyed and, creates a religious conflict.
Human cloning is the process that refers to the copying and replicating identical copies of humans using genetic engineering methods. Cloning can help and solve problems such as cloning in medicine, or to clone humans. We are going to look at the human cloning and its pros, cons, how is it done and the ethical issues of human cloning.
Cloning is an issue now and will be in the in the future,animals are cloned all the time.Does the human race want to have a copy of itself. We need to understand what is happening to the cloned animals and what could possibly happen to us if we were to be cloned.
