No one can really tell what the future holds for cloning but the next milestone would have to be the successful cloning of a human. The obstacle scientists face now is people’s objection based on ethics. The ethics and values that are in conflict with the further advancing of cloning are that of religion, societal issues about personal dignity, the infringement of the ideal of individual freedom, and the importance identity and autonomy. If and or when scientists receive the necessary response from the people anything may be achieved such as the mass cloning of humans for military purposes as seen in popular science-fiction films such as Star wars. Only time will tell what the future holds for cloning but until then we must use the developed methods we do know.
This book can be a warning to humanity, telling society that brainwashing can become common and destroy the modern day world. This book makes the people of the modern day world think about what could happen in the near future if society decides to go farther and more into scientific research. Misuses science could contribute to the making of man into an animal, not a smart, adapted, emotional connected human being. In “Brave New World,” Huxley creates a world that is complete and utterly disturbing to what humanity could become. The people in the World State are controlled through psychological conditioning on a ground breaking scale.
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.
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. There are a few reasons why the human cloning is illegal by the laws. Human cloning research faces with many problems since it first announced in public such as it is an unethical process, increases the mortality of infants and producing a mutant product. Background Paragraph First human cloning ideas introduced into public consciousness in the Future Shock, the book written by Alvin Toffler in 1970.
Wesley J. Smith goes on and on about how eugenicists would want to create homogeneity among Humans, valuing traits such as intelligence and looks instead of love, compassion, and empathy. He feels that this would create an unnatural society of human beings, creating chaos among the world. What he fails to recognize however is that it is not nearly as simple to do this as he thinks. Right now, cloning is in its very elementary stages, and most research being done is for medical purposes. Through advancing our knowledge in cloning and genetic engineering, we can eliminate unwanted traits and genetic diseases.
There are some negative long-term effects to human genetic engineering. Negative long term effects from human genetic engineering causes consequences that widen the socio-economic gap as well as limits genetic diversity. Advances in genetics and reproductive technology have opened the door to a new form of eugenics, termed “human genetic engineering,” that is focused on repairing faulty genes associated with disease or other health conditions. This is done through gene therapy, which is the alteration of a genome that could take place in the sperm and egg cells, alters the traits that a child is born with. Human genetic engineering is the science of manipulating an individual’s genetic makeup, with the intention of altering observable traits.
In artificial embryo twinning, even though a Petri dish carries the embryo rather than a mother, the process still uses the same approach as twinning in the natural sense. A Petri dish is a shallow cylindrical glass or plastic lidded dish that biologist use to culture cells such as bacteria or small mosses. An embryo is then separated into individual cells. They are then given time to the Petri dish to divide and develop until placed into a surrogate where they finish developing. Just like natural clones, the unnatural clones came from the same
