A Case for Cloning - One reason people protest the idea of cloning is because may are mystified as to how it could be used and what its purposes can be. I know that if it were your child, you would use every possible measure to keep them alive. The fact that we, as humans, might be able to figure out how to clone so that lives could be saved is extremely exciting and inspiring. On the other hand, there is a time and a place for everything, including research. While cloning is justifiable in certain circumstances, I would want to make sure other healthcare issues were taken care before donating money to research for cloning....   [tags: Cloning] 1446 words

History of Cloning - Cloning is defined as the different processes for duplicating biological materials such as tissues and new life forms (“Cloning Fact Sheet” 2009). The cloning of human tissue should be allowed because the fields of medicine benefit from it; however, the full cloning of humans is a mockery of life because it creates a population of people who will not evolve or adapt to changes in the environment. Therefore, the government should financially support the research of therapeutic cloning while condemning the act of reproductive human cloning....   [tags: Cloning]

Problem With Human Cloning - Cloning by definition taken from the Oxford Dictionary is a plant or an animal that produced naturally or artificially from the cells of another plant or animal and so the same as it. The first cloned adult mammal is a sheep named Dolly. The aim of research into human cloning has never been to clone people, or to make babies. The original aim of human cloning research is to get stem cell to cure a disease. It is inevitable that one day this knowledge of human cloning would be abused. As time goes by, the scientist started to think deeply and this is how the concept of cloned human being introduced....   [tags: Cloning]

Human Cloning: Is it Ethical or Not? - Reproductive human cloning is a form of asexual reproduction done in a lab, not by a sperm fertilizing an egg. This issue has been a hot topic for the past decade after Dolly the sheep was cloning in Scotland. Dolly was the first cloned mammal, whose very existence created much heat in the general public (Hansen, 2004). Many people believe that cloning is ethically immoral and should never be done, but others think that scientific advances can greatly cure diseases.

Cloning - For the last few decades, cloning was a fictitious idea that lay deep within the pages of some sci-fi novels. The very idea that cloning could one day become reality was thought to be a scientific impossibility by many experts but on one exhilarating day, what was thought to be "purely fiction" became reality. That fine day was February 22, 1997. A team from the Roslin Institute which was lead by Dr. Ian Wilmut changed the face of history forever by revealing what looked like an average sheep.

Cloning - Cloning has been an ethical and moral issue since the idea was first developed. There are many uses for investigating into this technology and many diseases that can be cured once the technology is understood. However, many of the methods in which the technology is developed and many of the uses of the technology destroy lives and only do harm. Much good can come from cloning and stem cell research, but we must be careful as to how we use this powerful technology. A stem cell is an unspecified cell that can regenerate itself and also turn into more specific types of cells that do more specific functions in the body (skin cells and blood cells for example)....   [tags: Cloning Ethic Moral Argument] 1495 words

Cloning - Cloning Cloning humans has recently become a possibility that seems much more realistic in today's society than it was twenty years ago. It is a method that involves the production of a group of identical cells or organisms that all derive from a single individual (Grolier 220). It is not known when or how cloning humans really became a possibility, but it is known that there are two possible ways that we can clone humans.

The Ethics of Human Cloning - Human cloning is separated into two major categories; reproductive cloning, which uses cloning technology to create a human embryo that will produce an entire human, and therapeutic, which adopt cloning into field of medical practices to find a cure for many diseases (Kass). Reproductive cloning requires a somatic cell, a DNA-less egg, and a surrogate mother; as a result, it creates a new individual with the same genome, or genetic coding. The idea originated in Germany in 1938, but the first successful research was not conducted until 1967 by scientist John Gurdon, who cloned a tadpole with a frog’s somatic cell....   [tags: human cloning]

Ethical Issues of Human Cloning - The word "cloning" is commonly used in everyday communication to mean many different technological procedures. Cloning is more specifically defined as somatic cell nuclear transfer. Simply explained by Glenn McGee in his article Primer on Ethics and Human Cloning as "the starvation and subsequent implantation of DNA from one organism (e.g., cells specialized to make that organism's hair or milk) into an egg whose DNA nucleus has been removed. The resulting egg and nucleus are shocked or chemically treated so that the egg begins to behave as though fertilization has occurred, resulting in the beginning of embryonic development of a second organism containing the entire genetic code of the first organism," (........).This method was first harnessed in 1952....   [tags: Ethics, Human Cloning] 2724 words

The Advantages of Cloning - The Advantages of Cloning      People often question whether or not cloning is morally acceptable in our society, and also if it is worth all the money that we spend on research for cloning.  It is hard to believe that not to long ago many people believed that joining a sperm and an egg in a test tube was considered to be morally wrong.  It is now used by millions of doctors around the world.  Cloning is at the beginning stages of being considered morally unacceptable and will soon move to be just like in-vitro fertilization.  Soon everyone will understand the benefits of cloning in agriculture, medicine, and social parenthood.  It is quite obvious that cloning has many social, agricultural, and medical benefits which outweigh its social and ethnic disadvantages.        First I want to talk about the many benefits that cloning has to offer our society.  The goals and purposes of cloning range from making copies of those deceased, to bettering engineering the offspring in humans and animals.  Cloning will insure a stable mixture of robustness and productivity in all agriculture and commercially important livestock.  Cloning can provide the ability to add new genes to an animal's repertoire and to precisely modify its existing genes.  Cloning could have a powerful impact on agricultural efficiency.  Cloning selective types of breeds can help to produce a much healthier and stronger animal by giving it all of the strongest genes possible.  The goal of transgenic livestock is to produce livestock with ideal characteristics for the agricultural industry, ad to be able to manufacture biological products such as proteins for humans.  With the knowledge we have gained about cloning,  we can produce all sorts of animals to ensure maximum agricultural productibility.  It will provide benefits unmatched by any other type of biological transfer....   [tags: Cloning Argumentative Persuasive Argument]

The Cloning Debate - The Cloning Debate        The first attempt in cloning was conducted in 1952 on a group of frogs. The experiment was a partial success.  The frog cells were cloned into other living frogs however, only one in every thousand developed normally , all of which were sterile. The rest of the frogs that survived grew to abnormally large sizes.   In 1993, scientist and director of the in vitro lab at George Washington University, Jerry Hall and associate Robert Stillman, reported the first ever successful cloning of human embryos.  It was the discovery of in- vitro fertilization in the 1940’s that began the pursuit to ease the suffering of infertile couples.  After years of research, scientists learned that "in a typical in-vitro procedure, doctors will insert three to five embryos in hopes that, at most, one or two will implant" (Elmer-Dewitt 38).  And that "a woman with only one embryo has about a 10% to 20% chance of getting pregnant through in-vitro fertilization.  If that embryo could be cloned and turned into three or four, thechances of a successful pregnancy would increase significantly"(Elmer- Dewitt 38)....   [tags: Cloning Argumentative Persuasive Argument] 782 words

Cloning - Cloning In recent years, the issue of cloning has been up for debate worldwide. Cloning is the production of one or more individual plants or animals that are genetically identical to another plant or animal. There are two different types of cloning procedures, embryo cloning and adult DNA cloning. Embryo cloning occurs when sperm and egg cells are mixed in a glass dish. After conception, the zygote (fertilized egg) is allowed to divide and nutrients are added to promote cell division. The cells then fuse with an ovum which has the nucleus removed....   [tags: Papers] 509 words

Cloning - Cloning humans is a threat to our society. It presents a vast number of problems that arise with each new discovery. The first is the decrease in distinct genetic make-up. Cloning also brings up many ethical points dealing with creation and psychological well being of clones. Cloning is such a new area of study that it requires a large amount of money and offers a lot of room for mistakes. The biggest problem with the use of cloning is the decline in genetic diversity.

Cloning - Shortly after the announcement that British scientists had successfully cloned a sheep, Dolly, cloning humans has recently become a possibility that seems much more feasible in today's society. The word clone has been applied to cells as well as to organisms, so that a group of cells stemming from a single cell is also called a clone. Usually the members of a clone are identical in their inherited characteristics that is, in their genes except for any differences caused by mutation. Identical twins, for example, who originate by the division of a single fertilized egg, are members of a clone; whereas nonidentical twins, who derive from two separate fertilized eggs, are not clones....   [tags: essays research papers fc]
