I believe that cloning animals from embryo cells is not ethical; it’s bad for the cloned animal’s health. Even though it’s seems to be a cool idea and very interesting, it’s not doing any good for them. The only good thing that could ever come out of cloning animals is if they are going extinct, but even then they are not going to last long due to them getting health problems.

What exactly is cloning? Well cloning is genetically identical copies of a biological entity. The copied material or the clone has the same genetic makeup as the original. Researchers have cloned a very wide range of biological materials, including genes, cells, tissues and even entire organisms (Cloning, 2014). In 1979, Karl Immense claimed to have cloned three mice. No one documented the results of the mice. So we don’t know if they lived or not and if they had any problems with health or any mutations. Some people think that if you’re cloning an animal it’s going to be exactly like the clone and the same age. But this is not true. Once an embryo is created it will develop the same way another regular embryo is created by joining a sperm and egg. There are actually three types of cloning and they all have different methods on how to achieve making a clone. There’s gene cloning, reproductive cloning and therapeutic cloning.

Gene cloning, also known as DNA cloning, is copies of genes or even segments of DNA. This method is more difficult to do then reproductive and therapeutic…
