In short, researchers (who have a zest for scientific answers) are wearing a different hat than an individual who desires healthcare. What with Stella being close to death, my response is to attempt to try everything and anything to save her. If giving birth to Mia through cloning so that Stella can live and Mia can have a fantastic life (with the same amount of hardships as other people) then I think that the scenario for cloning is more than justifiable. On the other hand, I do think that it is important to make sure that others have reasonable healthcare prior to doing extra research on the cloning of human subjects.
Opponents of cloning believe that the procedure of cloning has not been proven safe at all, while those who support cloning believe the cloning of humans could be used to solve human diseases and infertility. However, both sides may agree that human cloning may help in our new era. Human cloning has been successful and has had failure at times as well. The proponents of human cloning could be broken down into two arguments. The first argument being the way cloning can help by using certain technology to make sure the infertility rate goes down by helping to produce a genetic offspring.
I say that if it is for the better of that person and if it is going to help them lead a normal life then let them do it. Even though I think that cloning genes and organs for medical purposes is acceptable, I think that cloning of humans is wrong. One of the biggest reasons why I am against human cloning is the health issue. I also think that it would be wrong if the government cloned people just to make them perfect and superior or to take control over the humanity as they did in the book Brave New World.
The stake over the issue of stem cells revolves around the human life itself. Proponents of stem cells say that until an embryo has not been embedded into the uterus, it does not have a human status and therefore could be used to treat patient who already are persons. They also propose to obtain cells through IVF as opposed to abortion because abortion is attributed to a deliberate act of killing human life while the fo... ... middle of paper ... ...of optimism and bring forth a new way of life and medical abilities all around the world for the benefit of people, family, friends, and oneself. Science can be described as the pursuit of innovation, advancement and opportunity. Stem cells have offered scientists and the world a new doorway to treat diseases and help millions.
The embryo is still a living being no matter what age it might be and research is taking that embryo and doing research on it killing it in the process and not giving it a chance to be what it should have been. The reason for the debate is whether it is ethical to do research on an embryo knowing that it is a living entity or do the research knowing the research will help many people regardless of the loss of the embryo. It is a matter of trading ethics for the benefit of helping cure the sick. If a woman is having an abortion and the doctor... ... middle of paper ... ... not have the same properties as embryo stem cells. The embryo stem cell can give research insights into some basics of the human body.
I propose to stop federally funded embryonic stem cell research, and research with the use of adult stem cells should be federally funded and furthered. Using embryonic stem cells strictly for research is unethical, however, couples who have undergone IVF should be allowed to donate excess eggs to research by private institutions if they desire. I sincerely hope you take this proposal into consideration. Thank you for your time.
Those in favor of cloning argue that the technology will eventually lead to a number of benefits for human lives, benefits such as assisting reproductively challenged couples in having children genetically related to them, the growing and healing of wounded or diseased tissues and organs, and the curing of diseases such as cancer and leukemia. Conversely, opponents of cloning state that it is immoral and unethical to clone for religious reasons. Their arguments also include very thoughtful and concerned ideas, such as the fear that cloning will lead to the "10,000 Hitlers¡¨ scenario, and also the belief that the clone will suffer some sort of trauma because they will not have a unique identity of their own. All of these arguments are valid concerns, but when held to close examination do they really hold up as adequate reasons to put a ban on all types of cloning, some of which may help to save the lives of others? It is not enough to say that cloning is the creation of something, which is an exact copy of something else.
Even though there are numerous critics who believe human cloning violates human dignity, there should be an acceptance because it can be a solution to those who are affected with various diseases, it is essential for understanding our ancestors or other prehistoric species, and it benefits parents who lost their beloved children, or those who cannot have children. Argumentative Point 1 Tension of whether or not to ban cloning has occurred in a long period of time. Since 1998, Controversy about whether to ban the procedure of applying human embryonic stem cells, a method classified as therapeutic cloning has spread around the world. On the other hand, cloning through reproductive cell has been considered illegal in many nations. Practices of catholic stated, that human cloning is disrespect toward God himself.
This technique would be useful if a person need plasma, blood, or possible organs. To attempt to transplant baby organs to an adult however; the baby would have to grow into an adult. So instead of raising clones to be killed for the original human, scientists have thought about trying to copy human organs. By using DNA of a person’s organs they could then make a copy of it before it was ill and transplant it into the patient, this is the more reasonable thing to do. The two sides of human cloning is the side who believes that human cloning is morally, ethically, and religiously wrong and the side that believes that cloning could save countless lives and bring happiness to countless families.
Through using methods such as Reproductive cloning and Therapeutic cloning, advancements will be made and hopefully ethical issues will be eliminated. Through the way cloning links to asexual reproduction, scientist could develop even more alternatives to cloning. Although cloning affects many people’s morals and causes many ethical issues in today’s society, it will still be extremely beneficial to future research in cloning organs. Generating organs will someday be able to aid towards patients with terminal organ diseases and create advancements in the research of artificial organs.
