Cloning Essay, Research Paper



Cloning has been a very controversial topic since it affects moral

values of human beings and other living things alike. In February

1997 scientists in Scotland announced the birth of the first cloned

sheep named Dolly, this heralded the future of cloning possibilities

and scientists began extensive experiments on cloning and have

since then cloned both plants and animals successfully. The next

step was to clone actual human beings but before experiments

could have been carried out pressure started build on the

scientists because people started to doubt if cloning was ethical

and morally correct. Governments began to introduce bans and

constraints on cloning, as they felt cloning was not correct and

because they represented the people of its country, it had to act

on it. Cloning has its cons but its pros seem to overcome them


If cloning were allowed to be experimented scientists would come

up of a way to clone body organs which are an exact replica of an

individual body organ. This would prove very to be very beneficial

to a person who may have lost a body organ such as a kidney,

scientists could clone that particular organ for the individual,

which, in the long run, would work better than a transplant organ.

Cloning will certainly expand the scope of medicine greatly, thus

enhance the possibilities of conquering diseases such as the

Parkinson’s disease, cancer and other diseases that were earlier

considered incurable

Cloning could be used to increase the population of endangered

species of animals and thus save them from total extinction. This

would help maintain a natural balance on the earth and have a

continuos natural life cycle.

Cloning could certainly benefit couples who are infertile and want

to have a child of their own, thus they could use cloning to

produce a baby with their similar characteristics. In fact they may

be able to even choose the characteristics of their child. Equally

important women who are single could have child, using cloning

instead of artificial insemination. Cloning could also provide a copy

of a child for a couple whose child had died.

Another goal of cloning is to produce livestock with ideal

characters for the agricultural industry and to be able to

manufacture biological products such as proteins for humans.

Some people would suggest that cloning is unnatural and not

ethically correct but so would be talking medicine when you fall

sick. The whole of the modern medicine world in based on

unnaturalness, so it seems cloning would be part of that modern

medicine world. Some people also suggest that clones of human

beings would behave in different ways than a normal human being

would however this is also wrong as the clones will behave like any

other human being would behave as it will have all the

characteristics of a normal human being, as long as the individual

who was cloned had human characteristics, it wont really matter.

In conclusion I would like to say that, as you’ve seen above,

cloning could be used in various ways to benefit the lives of

humans .It is inevitable that cloning, at some stage, will play an

important, if not vital, part in our lives therefore it is about time

that society accepts this fact and lifts all constraints upon cloning

so that more research can be carried out and help eliminate any

risks associated with cloning.
