Attack Of The Clones

The controversy behind animal cloning

Introduction

The term cloning describes a number of different processes that can be used to produce genetically identical copies of a biological entity. The copied material, which has the same genetic makeup as the original, is referred to as a clone. The controversy lies in the fact that animal rights activists, don't want the animals hurt, and a lot of people dint want to eat the cloned meat, because they think its's not safe.

Why clone?

So we can clone things. But why would we want to? Well, we can learn a lot about about certain diseases, more specifically, genetic diseases. It also provides insight into stem cell research, which can advance healthcare, in more ways than imaginable. Another great aspect of animal cloning is, we can revive endangered and extinct species, such as dodos, and even dinosaurs.

Advocates for Animal Cloning

Of course there are also people who support animal cloning. Websites such as http://www.all-creatures.org/articles/ar-bioethical.html and

http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/human-life-and-dignity/cloning/research-cloning-and-fetus-farming-the-slippery-slope-in-action.cfm are supporters, in this innovative field of biotechnology.

No clones?

Cloning animals also has a lot of danger to it. Animals can be mutated, and even die, but most of the pain, comes from the fact they can have major factors to there gene pool permanently edited. In a lot of cases its not right, but on the other hand, whats right for the future?
