Cloning-Rough Draft
What if patients no longer had to wait months for an organ transplant? Or if a new medicine could cure diseases, like diabetes and osteoporosis. What if we could save endangered species? But this all comes to an ethical disadvantage. Cloning can have great potential solutions to some great issues, but these solutions can never be developed if countries continue to ban cloning. Cloning is a great scientific discovery that can have benefits to cure diseases, save lives, save endangered species and bring families together.
Cloning is the process of replicating cells in order to obtain an identical copy of the “mother” donor. A problem is that cloning can be difficult to study and produce further research as there are ethical issues and new state laws that prohibit further research of cloning. The purpose of cloning is to create genetically identical humans, animals and animal cells, plants and plant cells, various body tissue cells in the human body, to save endangered or extinct species and to create or repair human organs. Cloning is not a new process, plants perform reproductive cloning all the time, as do our body cells (Taras, Stavroulakis, and Ortiz 341). There are also multiple types of cloning, including reproductive cloning, therapeutic cloning and human cloning. Reproductive cloning aims to create genetically identical children for parents, therapeutic cloning aims to grow embryonic stem cells into tissues that can be used to help patients and…
