When you hear the words human cloning, what comes to mind? The process of giving life to a being identical to one’s self. Or the method of reproduction that gives hope to those who have none through the established ways. Well, this may come as a shock to either side, but it is, and always will be an unnatural method of becoming a parent, and one that is not, and must not be accepted in human society. What is cloning you ask? Cloning is the process of creating multiple copies of D.N.A fragments, Molecules, even Organisms. There are those who would claim that to deny human society this option would be outrageous. But would it be so, can that really be true? The following evidence would prove their reasons otherwise, as human cloning is still…show more content…
No one knows why these attempts failed and why one succeeded.” (Kolehmainen, 2017) To see something as valuable as an embryo carelessly destroyed in the process of reproductive cloning is a travesty, in numerous ways, not only does it further prove that cloning unable to safely provided a stable live product, but more so destroys a multitude of potential lives to create one possible abominate one. In accordance to Dr. Tanja Dominko’s reports, in the New York Time article “In cloning, Failure far exceeds success”, her three years of experimenting, and going through 300 attempts with monkeys, the only result she has come up with are some of the most grotesquely abnormal embryos containing cells that have little to none chromosomes whatsoever. Some even bare resemblance to that of cancerous cells as opposed to animals with healthy cells. (Kolata, 2001) But, the most promenade one, which has been over looked the most by far, would be the indefinite hazardous consequences cloning would have on our gene pools. “The process of cloning would inevitably invite the use of other genetic technologies, specifically genetic manipulation of cloned embryos, and this could result in permanent, heritable changes to the human gene pool.” (Kolehmainen, 2017) Such practices of artificially creating a human being only spills disaster in the laboratory, in more ways than one. Materials and funds go to waste with each failure, and those clones that do indeed exist do not last
