Cloning

What should be the limits of cloning?

What is cloning?

Reproductive cloning-

Reproductive cloning is the production of a genetic duplicate of an existing organism. A human clone would be a genetic copy of an existing person.


Therapeutic cloning -

Therapeutic cloning refers to the removal of a nucleus, which contains the genetic material, from virtually any cell of the body (a somatic cell) and its transfer by injection into an unfertilized egg from which the nucleus has also been removed.

Benifits

  • can supply food
  • might help humans
-extra parts

-make medicines

  • can bring back dead pets
  • bring back extinct animals
  • can make more endangered animals

Dangers

  • Animals cloned can have problems
  • destruction of human embryos to make clones can lead to angry people
  • cloned animal products/food is not always safe
  • Religion dose not agree with cloning
  • Rebellion

Conclusion

After my research I believe cloning needs very strict limits to keep both sides happy. One limit I believe should be put in place is no therapeutic cloning . Some U.S states have already ban therapeutic cloning but I believe all states should ban it.This type of cloning can lead to angry people and people to question what we are doing with the eggs. My second limit is you must label cloned foods. Cloned foods might go against religion and beliefs. The next limit is no human cloning. This could bring up questions and lots of disputes. Questions like what dose it mean to be human? Only cloning extinct animals for scientific reasons not for money. So no cloning a mammoth to put it in a zoo to make money. Another limit is no cloning endangered animals unless there is no way to stop them from going extinct. My final limit is no cloning pets. Most people believe that is wrong and religion dose not accept this.I believe these are some of the most important limits to put in place for cloning.
