Should Cloning Be Allowed? Cloning is on many scientists’ minds now a day. Many TV shows, and past movies have had some sort of cloning shown, or at least have had a reference to it. There has been major research done about every single type of cloning, or the health risks that come along with cloning. Some scientists say that, cloning should not be allowed be it takes up a lot of time, and most of the time requires luck (NBC News, 2014). Despite the negativity cloning gets from scientists and people, my opinion is that cloning should be allowed and eventually in the long run will help the human race. Cloning is not currently allowed, but should be allowed for medical research, population growth of the intelligent, and to be available for new scientific discovery. Cloning doesn’t happen one way. Cloning can happen in two ways. The first way is for cloning to happen naturally. Identical twins are an example of cloning happening naturally. The second option for cloning is to be made in the lab. Usually Cloning is done by an Artificial Embryo, but sometimes can also come down to doing it by Somatic cell transfer. Artificial Embryo copies the natural way of being able to create identical twins. Artificial Embryo twinning is done in a lab in which takes the egg that has already been fertilized by the sperm, and eventually will result in the cells diving. This will eventually end up creating identical twins. This is similar to Somatic Cell nuclear transfer. Somatic cell nuclear transfer is done by removing the nucleus. Then, the nucleus that had been fertilized with the sperm is inserted into the enucleated egg cell. The cell is then programmed again by the host cell, and then after a little bit will start to divide. The cells ... ... middle of paper ... ... cloning being allowed.
