My thesis statement is: All cloning should be avoided because it’s inhumane. Dolly the sheep is an example of adult animal cloning. It was a very difficult organism to clone. They had to go over 277 attempts of many sheeps. There were over 200 sheeps killed until one of them was the survivor, Dolly.
Cloning might seem like new technology. However, it is nothing new! Many of you must have heard of Dolly the sheep once in your life. Dolly is the very first mammal to be cloned; it was cloned from an adult sheep’s somatic cell. Just like Dolly, many other animal species such as dogs, cats, horses, pigs, rabbits, frogs, wolves, goats, monkeys, and fish, have been cloned and reproduced.
What this would do is kind of scare the humans of human cloning. For example in the documentary food INC many people after that movie were grossed out and were scared to eat meat. So if we show human cloning in public many people would disagree causing human cloning to be gone
Cloning is bad because we don't know what is going to happen in the end, although there are those who are on the opposing side. Scientists have cloned various animals to attempt to reproduce an exact replica of the original animal. One major reason why cloning animals is an ongoing issue is that it causes suffering for animals. It is said that “animal surrogates were manifesting adverse outcomes, and cloned animals were having diseases and even high mortality rates. One of these negative results is the large offspring syndrome (LOS), where clones are large at birth since they came
NEW YORK (AP) — For the first time, researchers have used the cloning technique that produced Dolly the sheep to create healthy monkeys, bringing science an important step closer to being able to do the same with humans. Since Dolly's birth in 1996, scientists have cloned nearly two dozen kinds of mammals, including dogs, cats, pigs, cows and polo ponies, and have also created human embryos with this method. But until now, they have been unable to make babies this way in primates, the category that includes monkeys, apes and people. In a paper released Wednesday by the journal Cell, he and his colleagues announced that they successfully created two macaques. The female baby monkeys, about 7 and 8 weeks old, are named Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua.
A BBC article made in 2003 had several hundred people voicing their opinion against the idea of human cloning. More recently, is the same question on debate.org “Should human cloning be allowed?” 61% of the debaters on that website say no to it with reasons like “When you clone a human being, you take their heart, when you do that, you kill them.” And others who say “Not enough is known about this, who knows what the long-term effects there are with human cloning?” (Debate Org, BBC)) In a greater sense, most governments today are based on popular opinion and what the people want like America, and if enough people want the law to be changed the law will be changed, if the law does not change that is a result of corrupt government wanting potential money that could come off of the process of human
It is also true that the technology has some advantages, this is because human cloning technology has so many defects such as low success rates, abuse of technology, and unsolved ethical problems that human being can not afford. Also, having unimaginable side effects or defects, human cloning must be prohibited. “It 's perfectly clear that if cloning works in every other mammal in which it 's been tried, it will work in human beings (NOVA Online | 18 Ways to Make a Baby | On Human Cloning: Lee Silver, no date).” This simple point of view that the success rates of human cloning and animal cloning is almost equal because they are same ‘living creatures’ is normally accepted by almost everyone. In this point of view, people might have hope about cloning as they think they know some success case such as Dolly. However, including Dolly, “some clones have inherent disorder such as defective hearts, lung problems, diabetes, blood vessel complications and malfunctioning
There are articles that do discuss cloning in which they either list the benefits of it or tell us about what moral and ethical issues that do come out of cloning. The differences between the articles allow the reader to make their own decisions on how they perceive the notion of cloning. In the article named Biblical Reasoning against Human Cloning (Part I), written by Eugene C. Newman, the author establishes the argument that “Cloning is considered “play-ing God” is because “man has devised a way to imitate what God has done to create or re-produce human life” (Newman). However, Smith who wrote The Benefits of Human Clon-ing states that “people will release their fears and let the benefits begin” as Smith believes that cloning has immense potential in saving lives. Despite Newman’s claim that cloning is considered playing God, he
Cloning is a great example of this, it is a modern advancement and it gives us the ability to recreate animals, and even people. While at the same time it is often considered inhumane. Dolly the sheep was a famous sheep who was cloned from another sheep, exactly like her. Although it was a success, there were serious long term effects and Dolly died at an abnormally young age. Other types of cloning could also improve the quality of life greatly for many people.
Human cloning The term ‘cloning’ represents the processes carried out to produce a duplicated genetic replica of a certain type of cell, tissue, or organism. The duplicated material that consists of the identical genetic makeup with the original, is called a clone. Various methods of cloning that are claimed successful nowadays will be the gene cloning, which is referring to the creation of copies of segments or genes of DNA. Secondly, the reproductive cloning, where the duplication of the entire animals is made, and lastly the therapeutic cloning, which the embryonic stem cells are created.
