Our experiences have told us that with a little work, we humans can clone just about anything we want. Cloning is organisms that are exact copies of each other. Some people worry about human clones being abused. Cloning is a good scientific development because they can clone people and harvest their organs for the real person. They can clone a person’s dead kids, and animals that are going extinct.
Cloning is a copy of something. The way they are cloning is by taking the egg cell and remove its nucleus so that it will read and duplicate the DNA of the donor cell. No doubt, cloning would help the human race, but here is why.
The point of cloning is that it can help a lot of people for medical purposes. Some people think we can have a farm for clones to harvest their organs. Scientist are more focusing on making the embryonic cells than anything else. Scientist have been working on how to clone animals that have become extinct, using the DNA tissue samples that they have gathered. In 2009, scientist had their first near-success cloning an extinct animal. Cloning endangered animals has become much easier because of the surviving animals that can

The egg is placed in a test tube and then implanted into the womb of an adult female. The female gives birth to an animal, known as a clone, with the same genetic make up as the animal that donated the somatic cell. Reproductive cloning produces copies of whole animals such as Dolly the sheep. Scientist have attempted to clone many endangered or extinct animals but they have all died because the researchers had to combine DNA from the threatened species with eggs from related domestic species. This means the clones were not exact replicas of the originals but hybrids that failed to develop properly in the
