The first argument being there could be psychological harms done to the clone. The last and final argument is there could be much harm to society. Many argue that one could lose individuality and uniqueness to a person if one were to clone them. Cloning could harm society by one might lose the establishment of a family or even have no respect for the human body (Melo 248). The first argument that was given was solving infertility.
It is imperative that something is done because if scientists continue to create genetically “super” plants, then pollution will skyrocket, certain plants and animals could become extinct, and these “super” plants will contaminate all non-genetically modified plants. The only way to stop this from happening is to inform people and then to get the large corporations to admit this is unnecessary and extremely detrimental. The root of this problem lies with the big companies who want money and don’t care about the method, and scientists who have not recognized that genetically engineered foods cause much much more trouble than they are worth. The long term effects of genetic altering are unknown, however the effects that have been found all show that it causes health problems for humans and animals and it causes irreversible harm to the environment. For example, if a plant is genetically engineered to be resistant to insects, then the insects will be forced to move elsewhere to find... ... middle of paper ... ...g needs to be done to contain this epidemic.
The technology would take years to perfect and it might at first produce unpredictable results. Creating humans who are likely to develop deformities or killing malformed fetuses would be morally indefensible. Most people balk at the idea of engineering a race of people with supposedly superior physical and mental traits, since that would mean that some characteristics would have to be deemed unwanted and eliminated. Scientists should stop their further research on human-cloning for a better world with people with their own uniqueness.
Therefore, the rights to one’s own identity will be abolished if human genes can be selected; thus, genetic engineering should be stopped, for it is unethical. Genetic engineering should be eradicated due to the fact that it is immoral. It is proven that such inventions as genetic engineering can negatively affect society and cause rash and inappropriate behavior. Also, genetic engineering involves altering nature’s balance, which is not the job of scientists, or society. Finally, genetic engineering can destroy one’s sense of individuality and spoil God’s plan of making all people unique.
Cloning is unethical because cloning of any kind goes against human dignity and morals, and in turn harms animals and plants. Cloning would ultimately, “take the humanity out of human reproduction” (Kontrovoch 29). According to E.V. Kontrovoch, author of “Human Cloning is Inherently Unethical”, cloning would lead to kids in an orphanage to overflow because of the lack of adoption taking place due to couples wanting to clone instead (29). Kontrovoch also states life would be seen as worthless because there would always be the option to replace a life that was lost (29).
Based on the previous research I have done, cloning being legalized endanger... ... middle of paper ... ...ed at risk. In accordance with the reasons above, cloning shouldn’t be legalized on account of the irrepebable damage it causes in various ways. Out of the reasons against cloning, ones based on religious, social, personal, economic opinion are less effective arguments. However, scientific observations are highly considerable for not permitting human cloning because of it is proven to be leading to death or many diseases, putting lives in danger. Correspondingly to what I have found in my researching process, the question of ‘Are there benefits of cloning present as well?’ appeared.
Human cloning is unethical there are also health risks, emotional risks, risks of abuse of the technology, and over population which leads to global warming. Human cloning is immoral, we know little about it which makes it dangerous with lots of risks. First of all there are health risks, which is the biggest disadvantage with human cloning. People who agree with human cloning agree with it because of the benefits that could do on people?s health, but they should consider the health risks. There are miscarriage deaths, deaths seen after birth, tissue rejection and abnormalities.
The process of trying to perfect a human being in any way is a very immoral idea and should not be continued in the future as it can cause serious issues to the individual as well as society as a whole. The method of perfecting the human species causes more damage than good when specifically talking about the technologies used to modify genes. By trying to perfect those who are not considered normal, Eugenics causes society to hinder the ability to accept and understand people who are different and creates a larger border around social inequalities. Finally, the process of cloning is an unethical way of enhancing the population not only because it is unreliable and poses large risks, but also due to the fact that it prevents the creation of diverse societies and breaks the ability to create a unique individual. All in all, the idea of Eugenics has proven to be a very unethical movement all throughout history an will continue to be this way due to the idea of genetic modification in advanced
Also, couples unable to bear children will be able to via cloning. Organs can be cloned reducing the long waiting lists that many people in need of organs suffer. To get rid of cloning research would be very harmful and detrimental to us all. One of the main arguments concerns the immorality of cloning. Many state that cloning debases the essence of humanity.
This might have made the movie enjoyable, but have put the idea of cloning in a bad light. There are many reasons why the public fears cloning, however, most fears are unsupported. People are afraid of cloning just as they are afraid of anything new in their lives. This immature fear led congressional representatives to an immediate ban of all research and practice of cloning. Cloning should have never been banned, the action taken was inappropriate and had absolutely no factual reasoning.
