Also, human cloning infringes on having own identity rights. This means that human cloning infringes a right to ask that there is only me in the world. So, people do not allow cloning themselves because there should be only they in the world. Opponents also maintain that human cloning contribute to the advanced medical science. For example, in America, chemists sold medicine after animal testing but, it did not work well and after taking medicine, deformed children were born.
In some states, destructive experimentation on human embryos is a felony. Most Christians have grave concerns on this critically important issue of embryonic stem cell research. In our view, conducting research that relies on deliberate destruction of human embryos for their stem cells is illegal, immoral and unnecessary. It is illegal because it violates an appropriations rider (the Dickey amendment) passed every year since 1995 by Congress. That provision forbids funding "research in which" human embryos (whether initially created for research purposes or not) are harmed or destroyed outside the womb.
Such as using bone marrow, using cord blood, or turning mature cells into stem-like cells. The majority of people believe that stem cell research is immoral and unethical because it is against their religion when scientists use a human embryo for their research. Researchers argue that the government should not keep funding for stem cell research. Dr. William Hurlbut is in favor of stem cell research, but he is pushing for using oth... ... middle of paper ... ...ning back the clock when everything in the environment favors the opposite,” said Manuel Serrano, who is a researcher at the Spanish National Cancer Research Center. If researchers are successful in turning mature cells into stem-like cells, they could take cells in a pancreas that don’t produce insulin and transform them adequately to produce insulin; therefore, doctors could treat diabetes.
One of the morality issues of today is stem cell research and cloning. Mankind has found a way to manipulate human cells into something that could save lives. This is a moral issue because even though it can be used to help people, the process of obtaining these cells could be harmful to others. A lot of times innocent embryos are hurt purely for tests and because people are focused on the embryo stem cells, they have little idea that similar results can be obtained from the stem cells of adult donors. The problem with cloning is that it manipulates an existing cell with DNA from a patient or donor and as humans; mistakes are made so the result isn’t exactly correct.
The Senate is considering a proposal to outlaw human cloning. Two alternative proposals would ban only "reproductive cloning," which would mean explicitly legalizing human cloning but not the implantation of a clone embryo into a womb. Pro-cloners are willing for the most part to outlaw reproductive cloning because it isn't safe, but they oppose a ban on cloning for research and experimentation--known as "therapeutic cloning"--arguing that such a cloning license is necessary to the development of future medical treatments for human ailments. This opposition to a ban on human therapeutic cloning is misinformed. The case against cloning, including therapeutic cloning, has mainly been argued on grounds of morality.
Those who oppose stem cell research do not want fetuses and fertilized eggs used for research purposes. Because embryos are used when doing stem cell, the topic of what is considered a living embryo has raised quite the arguments for both sides. According to the Family Research Council, Embryonic stem cells are derived from human embryos. Their use is controversial because, unfortunately, such stem cells cannot be harvested without destroying the living embryo. ... ... middle of paper ... ...rts the use of stem cells.
Stem Cell Research This research paper will focus on stem cell research and the ethical issues that are attributed to this subject. This topic will be narrowed down to Embryonic Stem Cell research in that there is a great debate going on how to conduct this research ethically. The importance of embryo stem cell research is that the research could help save lives and also the debate is that it is morally wrong to kill an embryo due to the fact it still a living organism. The issue with embryo stem cell research is that an embryo is a living being and should not be used for research, because then the embryo would not be allowed to develop into the living form it is meant to be. This issue is being debated in the government and other political aspects as to whether the research should be done.
The negative side to the use of embryonic stem cells is that they are derived from early embryos, which is what many view as the beginning of life. These embryos are being destroyed in the process of research thus preventing life from running its natural course. The ethical controversies that arise in embryonic stem cell research are safety, resource allocation, and methods of harvesting cells. The safety of the existing cell lines is a concern because most of the cells have been grown in culture with the help of mouse stem cells which could lead to the transfer of dangerous animal viruses to humans. (3) The methods of harvesting the embryonic stem cells results in killing a living embryo, but some of these stem cells are produced by cloning.
It also demands funding for further development and error methods. Cloning humans not only threatens society, but also the value and uniqueness of every individual. Maybe they will have a check box where it asks if you are a clone or an original. We do not need any more discrimination than what we have going on now. How I mentioned in the beginning, human cloning will be detrimental to the human race.
