This has made it easy for society to want to avoid what might happen after the process of cloning has started. However, many people do not realize how cloning can positively affect their lives. Cloning is a tremendous technological breakthrough for this century and it is an inevitable advancement for the future. One of the major benefits offered through cloning is towards couples that cannot naturally conceive a child. There are over twelve million Americans at childbearing age who are infertile, which is major problem not only in the United States, but also throughout the world (Hoon).
I am referring to identical twins. Outside of that, no human has ever been artificially cloned. One attempt at splitting an embryo in 1993 came very close but was not successful. Both of the two ways of cloning; splitting an embryo and implanting genetic cells into an egg, are hard to do, expensive and dangerous, but offer endless possibilities in medical developments. Although many scientists think cloning will someday be possible, many also think it would be unethical to try.
If the clone is successful, the child will have a perfect match for the organ transplant. The initial result is that the parents end up with two healthy children that are more like delayed twins rather than clones (Watchbroit). This type of solution could solve a problem that plagues hospitals today. The lack of organ donors often causes grief and sorrow to the person waiting for a transplant and their family. Cloning can definitely be a safe alternative to what is occurring currently in hospitals now as long as it is closely monitored.
In vitro fertilization is a procedure to treat the genetic failure in the ovaries that allow a women to naturally conceive a child. Today’s advancements in technology has changed the in vitro fertilization market in many different ways. Personally being a product and witness of the “test tube” baby generation, I understand the happiness and completeness a family experiences when these procedures are successful. On the other hand, although people know a lot about this procedure, most don’t understand the negative effects it can have on families due to extreme technological advancements if government doesn’t enforce strict regulations on this market. I believe this market needs extreme government intervention in order to prevent the harmful future
Admittedly, embryos often get discard or being store in freezer; many believe that instead they should be used for medical research, but human are not just mere materials for medical research after they died. In another word, embryonic stem cells researches from aborted babies are out of question. To summarize these embryonic stem cells can cure many diseases, but for that to happen the embryo will be destroyed. Even though there are some still believed in embryonic stem cells, stem cells researcher must not be allowed to use stem cells from aborted babies to cure diseases because it is against religious philosophy, embryonic stem cells are not effective compare to adult stem cells, and stem cells can be obtain from other part of the body without harming in donors and had already cured diseases such as blood and immune disorders.
Many people have used the lack of knowledge caused by the media to convince people of their anti-cloning standpoints. Cloning has been deeply opposed on the grounds of its immorality, but human cloning is moral and extremely helpful for enhancing human lives. Part of the misconception of cloning caused by the media is the thought that clones are fully-formed, fully-grown version of the cloned person. Somatic cell nuclear transfer, as it is more technically known, would still require a surrogate mother and the regular birthing process. Cloning can be imagined as the birth of twins, but instead of that birth being separated by a few minutes it could be separated by a few years from the birth of the cloned (Levine 14).

Because of the costly treatment and failure for most insurance companies to grant coverage for infertility, many couples are not able to have their own children since this is something that has to be paid out of the pocket. Furthermore, even though there has been past controversial issues with the treatment using IVF, it is a safe procedure today—with some complications, such as twins being born—and with the scientific, medical, and technological advances that we have in the 21st century; people trust this method as safe and effective. Everybody deserves to have a family. And for some—IVF is the only solution next to adoption.
This would save time and money. Cloning also would provide an option for someone who wants a child genetically related to them but is completely sterile. Even with the possibilities of reproductive cloning helping solve infertility problems, it is extremely dangerous and unethical. Previous experience with reproductive cloning on animals has yielded terrible results. “F... ... middle of paper ... ... 2014. .
These embryos need to be put into surrogate mothers so that they can grow into living things. I do not believe in this process because I think it is disrupting the balance of nature. People and scientists think that cloning is a good thing, but really it is not as successful as they say it is. ¨More often than not, however, things do not work out quite right. It may take 100 tries to get one embryo to develop inside the mother.¨ I believe it is wrong that people are using other living things for their work when most of them die before birth.
Through an increase of birth control and campaigns for adoption there should be no need for a negative view of IVF with respect to adoption. Society evolves slowly, while science builds upon itself exponentially. In many ways, this is the greatest contrast between society and
