Reproductive cloning is the second one, it produces copies of the whole body of an organism (mostly an animal). The last one is Therapeutic Cloning, this produces system cells that are embryonic. To conclude, science is a very ambitious topic. Many people are with or against cloning. Maybe the world should start considering to what they are doing to the environment and to the world.
There has always been a misconception of what it means to clone. The general idea is that cloning is making a precise copy of the cloned subject; however, that is misleading. Cloning organisms does not work completely like the copy machine making copies, but more like breeding animals where two desired breeds are being bred to produce a new offspring where it grows into something that is somewhat similar to the expected outcome. To further understand cloning, the difference between therapeutic and reproductive cloning must be recognized. As Susan Aldridge illustrates in her article “Human Cloning”, therapeutic cloning is the creation of an embryo which will later develop into tissues and cells for the purpose of research.
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 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
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
Take this into consideration and acknowledge how it could impact humanity, as well as the cloned human. The advancing technology allows individuals to have the freedom of bringing their prescience about cloning humans into a reality, faster than one could imagine. One mistake could entirely deteriorate humankind more than benefit it. In today’s quickly-advancing technological age, human cloning is possible; however, it is unethical because it diminishes individuality, interferes with nature, and increases the risk of fatal failures. In this world we live for the sake of individuality and what makes a person different from the other seven billion people.
Human cloning is ethically wrong; there are many risks involved, which will lead to detrimental effects on human society. Before going into my points, I would like to talk about what cloning is. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute, cloning is “a number of different processes that can be used to produce genetically identical copies of a biological entity.” (Green, genome.gov). There are three types of artificial cloning: gene cloning, reproductive cloning, and therapeutic cloning. Gene cloning is the production of copies of genes and DNA.

Today’s technology develops so quickly and many impossible things become true nowadays. Cloning technology is one of the technologies thereabout rapidly. “Cloning is the process of creating a new organism by copying genetic information from a single “parent” organism” (Boyle, 2013, p. 1). Cloning, as of later years, has become a very arguable issue in society but cloning can have several good effects for the well-being of society. Many people believe that scientists should develop a clone human but government are against human cloning.
Another important advantage of cloning humans is for infertile couples. Cloning babies seems to be the perfect solution, although there are some ethical issues. By cloning babies for parents who can not have them on their own, you could create the “perfect” child. There are special genes that can be added to enhance some special talents, you could pick the sex of your baby, as well as test for hereditary diseases to choose whether or not to use that egg. Although that may seem like a good thing, the process of harvesting human eggs for donation is very painful, lengthy and increases health risks for the donor.
