To the Nazi leaders, it was adopted to measure, identify and selectively reduce the presence of those to be “socially inferior” in Germany. (Eugenics-Meanings) Eugenics began to make its world mark. When Germany extended its practices, Eugenics was no longer used to better humanity, but as a way to eliminate the Jewish and other non-Aryan peoples. Not only did this new technology assist the mass genocide of Jewish people in Germany, but also empowered the inhumane actions of an infamous dictator and his doctors. The Nazi regime took what it regarded as the logical next step in 1939, when it declared euthanasia for all severely d... ... middle of paper ... ...es of eugenics, History."
"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.
Since the conception of eugenics, scientist and scholars looked for many ways to improve or wipe out human characteristics that prevent the progression of evolution in the human race. Originally, eugenics was the study of improving the human race by exterminating people who don’t fit the stereotypical white purity ideology. Its this kind of ideology that influenced Nazi Germany to carry on their heinous atrocities known as the holocaust. Some of the ideas behind eugenics also influenced legislation, which created segregation laws, marriage restrictions and forced sterilization here in the United States before World War II. Scientist saw eugenics as a solution to alleviate many underlying social problems in society like alcoholism, crime and poverty.
The case against cloning, including therapeutic cloning, has mainly been argued on grounds of morality. Opponents have warned that creating embryos through cloning for the purpose of research (with the full intention of destroying them later) is a breathtakingly radical enterprise. For the first time in history, human lives will be created for the explicit purpose of exploitation. Such considerations have led activist Jeremy Rifkin to opine that the cloning debate is to the 21st century what the slavery debate was to the 19th. Unfortunately, we live in a time of widespread and extreme non-judgmentalism, an era when many Americans simply do not respond to moral arguments in public policy debates.
Two, scientists could be creating new inventions; helping with saving money and building new technologies. There is no good possible outcome about this ethical idea of cloning but, yet we do have the negative results of the animal cloning’s that were done since scientist wants to clone human because they've done it to animals before. Which can also be double times harder than animal cloning which such an idea shouldn’t haven’t come to the surface, but it exists in our world. The impact that it will have in our world is more likely to be dangerous and we must be aware of this because it will influence how we live. There's nothing superior that could practically come out of cloning a human being, NOTHING!
"Multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die.” ― Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species Charles Darwin, believe it or not played a huge role in the development of the holocaust. He played a role in the beliefs of the Nazi party. His theories is what they based their laws off of, they gave the Nazi's their thoughts of political beliefs. This leading to the Nazi's replacing the Judeo-christian Doctrine with Darwinism. Darwin's theories had a huge impact on how the jews were treated and how war was seen.
If our genetic diversity is lowered, due to the lack of mixing genes in cloning, our disease resistance as a whole will decrease. The human race could be weakened and could suffer from many problems. Second, cloning is dangerous and poses many health risks. People claim that it will lead to medical miracles and cures, but as of now cloning has an extremely high failure rate and has not yet been proven to be effective in treating anything. 95 to 99 percent of cloned organisms die before ... ... middle of paper ... ... adopted as a baby, the parents have the ability to raise the child just like they would raise their own.
Beginning in 1933, Hitler and his Nazi party targeted not only those of the Jewish religion but many other sets. Hitler was motivated by religion and nationalism to eradicate any threats to his state. It was Hitler’s ideology that his Aryan race was superior to any other. Hitler’s goal was to create a “master race” by eliminating the chance for “inferiors” to reproduce. Besides the Jews the other victims of the genocide include the Roma (Gypsies), African-Germans, the mentally disabled, handicapped, Poles, Slavs, Anti-Nazi political parties, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Homosexuals.
Davenport stated eugenics is, "the improvement of the human race by better breeding" (Adams, 2005, p. 234). He suggested that the rising problem of the decline of the human population could be eliminated at the source.

It is believed that one reason the Japanese were conducting these experiments was to advance biological weapons technology for use in attacking the United States (Kaufman, 2008, p. 647). The organizations were developed in the United States and Germany to improve the human population as a whole.
Eugenics is science that was developed by Francis Galton in the nine-teen hundreds this science was developed with early development of genetics and its main goal was rid the world of invalids (). The only problem with Galton’s method was he wasn’t able to collect genetic proof so people were seen as invalids just by their behavior. The eugenics movement caused for several individuals to be sterilized that didn’t need to be sterilized. Eugenics is seen more as a pseudo-science. Eugenics main focus was to find individuals whom are perfect and with the rise of selective abortion and prenatal screening/preliminary genetic screening this science is able to do what it did before but with actual genetic information as well.
