reproductive cloning

todays techers will be tomorrows clones


will cloning gonna lead to more organ transplants

background of cloning

  • people have been cloning things for thousands of years
  • some examples are plants and animals

plant cloning

1. (plants) cutting pieces of the stems, roots, or leaves of the plants and then planting the things you cut into the ground. Then the cuttings you made and planted will grow an identical copy or copies of the originals.
Science Bulletins: Cloning and Conservation
when they clone animals they go into ther nucleous and take a skin cell out of the nucleous from the original cow and place it into a fertal egg from the other cow (the non original) then they but the fertal egg with the nucleous skin cell back into the cow they got it from then in a few months or so the clone is born

pros and cons


  • -you can clone an animal to help its species from going extincted
  • Supporters of nonhuman animal cloning point to the potential medical and economic benefits and - say you have alot of pig clones you can give it to a butcher and they can make good money
  • On the economic side, top quality cattle might be cloned to produce disease-free herds that produce especially good beef -so what they're saying is that they can create a cow clone that is disease free and they can sell them for good money
  • -PRO FUN FACT:if you have to go to a party but you dont know what to wear or if you dont know if you look good in a certain outfit, you can just put it on the clone and see how you look (only if human cloning ever gets approved)


  • 80% of the time the cloned animal dies from deisese or not enough nutrience
  • some people fear that clones born as children might have hidden health flaws- thats bad because they might be very sick but you wouldnt know
  • Would clones have the same rights as their originals, or would they be regarded as a form of property? Might cloning result in a new kind of slavery?- this is bad because even though their clones they should still have the same freedom as thier original
  • It might not even be possible to create an exact copy of an individual - just because the genetice material is the same that doesnt mean the clone will be the same as the original
  • -when you clone things sometimes they dont come out the way you want them to look so if you wanted to clone a monkey theres a chance it might come out looking like an alien

examples to back up my pros/cons

this is a photo that backs up one of my cons about cloning and the reason was that when you clone something it wont always come out looking like its suposed to. this was suposed to be a kangaroo clone but it came out looking like a dinasaur!!!!!!!!!!

EXAMPLE PRO: if you have a clone and you need a organ transplant then you can just get the organ or blood or what ever you need from your clone EXAMPLE CON: if your clone is very unhealthy and you didnt know that and you took blood or and organ from them then put it in your body you could die or get very sick from that

example to con #1

Dolly the sheep they made in the lab, died 6 days after she was cloned because she had a diesease also a cow that they made in the lad died 2 days after it was cloned from bacteria too

example for con #4

  • if your really into sports and a scientist clones you your clone could grow up and really hate sports so i feel like its really pointless to clone humans because their not gonna be excactly like you they could grow up to be your worst enime you never know

someone who loves and is good at this sport

someone who cant dance and is horrible at the sport

so once again my EQ was will cloning gonna lead to more organ transplants? and honestly i as if cloning will lead to more oragan transplants because i feel like doctors are just gonna keep cloning no matter what. They will clone just for experiments or repopulation or organ transplant so again i can honestly say yes cloning will probably lead to more organ transplants
