The fact that there have been many advancements in biomedical technology over the years have given us the ability to cure and prevent diseases that have once devastated the human population. These breakthroughs have allowed people to live longer and healthier lives, yet others believe that it runs the risk of “playing God” and that such matters should be left into the hands of a higher power. Today, this ethical debate still continues to raise questions on whether these scientific breakthroughs are morally acceptable. While I support the use of scientific breakthroughs, I believe that it should only be used for human benefit to cure those who are suffering from cancer. This approach seems more reasonable than using this technology to choose one’s eye color or keep someone on life support just because it is something that can be done, whether or not that is acceptable or not.
While there are global issues such as global warming, life expectancy, and world hunger, the well-being of the human race has continued to get better as the Earth spins round. The process of cloning has now em... ... middle of paper ... ...ard medicinal practice and does not threaten making a whole new human being. Reproductive cloning is ethically wrong and should be avoided at all costs even if society comes to desperate measures. However, therapeutic cloning delivers medicinal benefits that can save lives and increase medical knowledge to a whole new level. Even though therapeutic cloning comes at the cost of an embryo, the benefits that it reaps are hard to argue against.
A world full of generally more capable people would be capable of doing so much more. Many debilitating and severe unwanted diseases, genetic disorders and disabilities can be avoided through the creation of designer babies. A child's quality of life would be drastically increased if they evade Down Syndrome, deformities or heart disease for example. In a sense, it isn’t all that different to hearing aid, medication for an illness or chemotherapy for cancer, but on a larger scale and earlier in someone’s life, before it even really begins in fact. Some people would argue that changing genes is changing who people are, which they view as ‘wrong’, but genes aren’t exactly the only things that make up a person anyway.
"This procedure will be both a contribution to science and a betterment of the human race." Human cloning will provide unlimited benefits to our species and should be legal. This paper is intended to educate you to the many benefits of human cloning before it is banned due to ignorance. Now before you read any further I would like to ask you to forget any myth, legend or science fiction that you might have heard about cloning. The cloning of humans could be the greatest achievement of medical science, it could lead the way to the solution to some of humanity's greatest problems.
More research needs to be carried out to help eliminate any possible risks associated with the newly discovered procedure. Cloning doesn?t necessarily have to have a negative impact on the world. Cloning is a very beneficial technique to improve the quality of life, why not use the scientific breakthrough to the best of the world?s abilities. Cloning is the future. Works Cited Andrews, Dr. L. (1999).
In the future, geneticists would be able to clone pieces of organs and, then, make organs for surgeries involving transplants. Geneticists may even be able to clone cells from damaged organs and then engineer exact duplicates. Genetics will definitely have a large impact on correcting of malfunctions in the human body. Without doubt, genetic engineering has already helped make human life easier and will continue to do so in the future, provided that research on genetic engineering continues. All advancements in science have led to positive and negative results, yet, the rewards of genetics greatly outweigh the disadvantages.
Of the many controversial issues in the United States, stem cell research stands among the top. People either think the destruction of human embryos is necessary to save the lives of others, or they think “the ends don’t justify the means”. Both sides have valid arguments, but when considering the future possibilities that can derive from embryonic stem cell research, the solution is clear. Stem cell research should definitely be practiced along with a strong emphasis on embryonic stem cell research. In order for any of this to happen, the United States government must fund the research.
Although cloning has its benefits it also has its downfalls and because of this it is a very controversial topic in today’s society. I believe genetic engineering has more benefits than disadvantages because it will eliminate diseases, especially those that are known to cause premature death. First off, it is understandable that genetic engineering seems to be unethical and because of this people have different thoughts and opinions based on this subject. Taking an embryo stem cell would cause destruction of the embryo to save the other person’s life, and some people see this as religiously and morally incorrect. However the big picture isn’t seen by many, and by allowing genetic engineering we will be able to save so many people’s lives that we never thought could be possible.
However, cloning should still be legal. Eventually, cloning can be corrected until its fully understood and it can be then be used to benefit mankind. Human and animal cloning can cure many diseases if it's finally perfected and then there won't be any more concerns or disadvantages in the future.
Not everyone is privileged to have a private insurance that covers the cost of testing. This means that the Federal Government will have to lower the cost of testing so it will be suitable for all people to pay. This also means that the United States will be more aware of what is happening inside their country healthwise. Moreover, not only will this lead to the betterment of medicines and cures, but technology as well. We are advancing at a rapid pace so we will be able to find cures and be able to find and terminate these diseases faster than we have ever done.
