Cloning is a controversial topic in which the public denies it as inappropriate, while some scientific leaders say it can benefit our society. We have been able to clone many things from plants, vegetables, animals and maybe one day the human race. Today some scientist’ have expressed their desire to be the first to clone a human with hopes of great triumph, but they have forgotten about the moral and religious issues on hand. Cloning should be banned because there are too many risks and not enough benefits for our society. Cloning would be creating a breed that has no flaws, and since perfection does not exist, the clone will be a great disappointment (Kayotic).

"Everybody who thought it would proceed slowly and could be stopped was wrong," said Lee Silver, a professor from the University of Princeton. Without proper research to support the ban, the premature ban should be reconsidered and appealed. Cloning could provide a way for infertile couples to produce children genetically similar to themselves, a method of creating spare organs for transplants, and a cure for genetic disease. Human cloning may provide numerous benefits to mankind and should not be banned. Some people say that it is morally wrong and others are scared that a leader, such as Sadam Husian, will clone himself.
Do we test the unborn, and if so, then can the parents abort if they are unhappy with the results? How far do we let things go? Is genetic testing really a good ethical procedure? But what if it could also prevent and help cure disease? There are many issues involved with genetic testing.
