The Science of Cloning In the essay, Cloning Reality: Brave New World by Wesley J. Smith, a skewed view of the effects of cloning is presented. Wesley feels that cloning will end the perception of human life as sacred and ruin the great diversity that exists today. He feels that cloning may in fact, end human society as we know it, and create a horrible place where humans are simply a resource. I disagree with Wesley because I think that the positive effects of controlled human cloning can greatly improve the quality of life for humans today, and that these benefits far outweigh the potential drawbacks that could occur if cloning was misused. Human cloning is one of the most controversial subjects in modern times.
"This procedure will be both a contribution to science and a betterment of the human race." Human cloning will provide unlimited benefits to our species and should be legal. This paper is intended to educate you to the many benefits of human cloning before it is banned due to ignorance. Now before you read any further I would like to ask you to forget any myth, legend or science fiction that you might have heard about cloning. The cloning of humans could be the greatest achievement of medical science, it could lead the way to the solution to some of humanity's greatest problems.
Possible benefits would be; replace love ones that have passed away, reproduce humans with special abilities and high intelligence such as Einstein and, regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine is the process that would allow cloned organs to be used to replace human’s damaged organs. Splendid as it sounds, not one clone, human nor animal has risen to the challenge without complication whatsoever. As a fairy tale, cloning sounds too good to be true and the failure rate is tremendous. “Your success cannot be 1 or 2 percent.
Diseases, which can be avoided, would spare the victims and their families’ unnecessary suffering. Would-be parents who knew they had a high chance of passing to their offspring active disease causing genes could eliminate that risk. Many of the pros of cloning do carry speculations. The objections to cloning are based on distorted and misleading assumptions. A Hitler reborn, a human clone with no soul, and other such arguments seem to be designed to scare the public into opposition without taking the time to listen to the possibilities, even if they are speculations.
Pro-abortionists believe that life begins at birth and that a fetus is only a blob of tissue until it is born. Abortion is the dismembering and killing of a human life-an unborn baby- not just a “blob of tissue”. “ But it is scientific and medical fact based on experimental evidence, that a fetus is a living, growing, thriving human being, directing his or her own development” (Fetal Development). A fetus is not just a blob of tissue; rather a fetus is Latin for “offspring or young one.” At a US Senate Judiciary Subcommittee meeting, most scientists said that life begins at conception or implantation of the embryo. No scientist at the meeting claimed that life begins at birth (Factbot).
Human cloning is a major issue in the science world. At the point when individuals consider human cloning they think about the positive parts of the issue. Having a cloned hotshot around, having the capacity to have a man reawakened after a shocking demise and even similarly as utilizing a cloned individual for extra parts. Cloning could influence mankind. In spite of the fact that there are great reasons why cloning ought to stay legitimate, there are similarly the same number of reasons why this methodology could have negative effects.
Parents need to be given more credit in that they would not objectify their cloned children, but love them unconditionally. Cloning should not be condemned, due to fear for the unknown, but should be explored to benefit human kind and enlighten us on who and what we are. Human cloning is a new frontier that will have its own obstacles and walls to climb over, go around, or go under. Human cloning will be cherished and prized for what it has brought humanity, new medical technologies, along with cures for disease and cancer. Unfortunately it is inevitable, but a sacrifice will be made some where as with many past medical advancements.
Even though therapeutic cloning comes at the cost of an embryo, the benefits that it reaps are hard to argue against. If there comes a day where cloning can be done without the cost of an embryo or the threat of creating a brand new human being from one person alone, life expectancy will jump through the roof and then society will have a brand new set of ethically issues to deal with. Until that day comes, cloning should be handled with extreme caution but approached enthusiastically because we never know when a scientific anomaly could occur.
The call for the ban of human cloning has been premature in the development of the procedure. The benefits of cloning are innumerable to the medical field and could revolutionize potentially fatal procedures. Humankind could benefit greatly from this new technology, and it should not be banned. If God was the original "cloner" when he created Eve from Adam's rib, and Jesus was a clone of god. If we are wrong in cloning, would not God also be?
This discovery sparked a curiosity for cloning all over the world, however, mankind must answer a question, should cloning be allowed? To answer this question some issues need to be explored. Is cloning morally correct, is it a reliable way to produce life, and should human experimentation be allowed? Scientists have no problem with the ethical issues cloning poses, as they claim the technological benefits of cloning clearly outweigh the possible social consequences, not to mention, help people with deadly diseases to find a cure. Jennifer Chan, a junior at the New York City Lab School, said, "?cloning body organs will help save many patients' lives," she said.
