Cloning

Cloning, they have already cloned dogs and cats but, the big question in everyone's mind is can we clone human well there has been news that "scientists had for the first time recovered stem cells from cloned human embryos prompted dire warnings from religious leaders who say the research crosses a moral red line and could lead to designer babies". So guess that means we are getting one step closer to cloning humans.


"The cloning breakthrough was accomplished by scientists at Oregon Health and Science University and was announced May 15 in the journal Cell. It followed 15 years of failed experiments and the infamous case of fraud when a South Korean biologist falsely claimed to have cloned human embryos."


"Human cloning "treats human beings as products," O'Malley said, "manufactured to order to suit other people's wishes…A technical advance in human cloning is not progress for humanity but its opposite." So I guess human cloning can also be a bad thing too. America can you clones for a lot of bad stuff like sending them to war.


So therefore cloning can be a bad and good thing but, when we figure out how to it will definitely be a scientific breakthrough.
