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]
