Human Cloning

Good Essays
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. The last argument being that cloning could be an important process to help battle with genetic diseases. Although some of these arguments may fail, if they were to succeed in any way though, there would be a great deal of reasoning to move forward with the argument (Melo 253).
The opponents of human cloning could also be broken down into two arguments as well. The first argument being there could be psychological harms done to the clone.

Taking granted these assumptions that has been offered proponent and opponent. The arguments cause many problems to people who support technology, neglect the concept in which cloning humans might be implemented. (Melo 263).
When proponents dealing with helping infertility rates going down and helping battle genetic diseases are discussed, the opposing side also argues that cloning human beings could cause psychological harm to the clone, and harms to our society as well. But in the end the arguments tend to cancel each other out, leading to many failures.
