Within the past century, humans have developed an interest with tinkering with the inner workings of living creatures. The Cambridge Dictionary, sponsored by the University of Cambridge whose medical department is leading the world in the science of genetic manipulation, defines the widely misunderstood process of cloning as artificially producing an organism or cell with “The exact same chemical patterns… as the original” (Cambridge 1). Currently, scientists are able to duplicate animals like mice, goats, and monkeys with reasonable success. However, this field of science is highly restricted and bottlenecked because of its legal, moral, and religious controversy, and thus the days of human cloning with success will not come around for a long time. A genetically cloned puppy, however, is something one could order themselves today if they want authentic purebred pet, or an exact duplicate of their last. Cloning is a scientific process that is still very much in its early stages, but it has sent into the world small parcels of success that offer a glimpse into a new age of genetic perfection; however, these gifts have also drawn concern to its safety, questionable morality, and if it’s worth the funding to support Genetic Engineering. As technology has advanced, the interest in the uses for cloning technology has followed suit with an influx of funding into the industry by investors who see its outstanding potential. One of the greatest pressing concerns of the
