    Human Cloning Alvin A. Soriano February 14, 2000 A pleasant morning Ladies and Gentlemen. I would like to share my views on why cloning should be legalized in the Philippines. We, the experts in the Institute of Technological Technologies feel that with the careful continuation of research, the technological benefits of cloning clearly outweigh the possible social consequences. We think that final products of cloning, like farm animals, and laboratory mice will not be the most important achievement. The applications of cloning as we envision are not nightmarish and inhumane, but will improve the overall quality of science and life. Cloning will help to produce discoveries that will effect th ...

    Human Cloning Human Cloning ... Most people panic when they hear the words "Human Cloning". Crazy thoughts run through their heads, imaginations run wild. They think of the world being run over by a million little Hitler's. They think of people thinking exactly like one another, and that no person would be different. And for some reason because of cloning, the world, as we know it will cease to exist. Cloning to some people is even considered "evil." Most religious people believe that it is "Playing God", they think that mankind is not supposed to have this power. Cloning, however, is not a magical way of creating life. It is a scientific procedure that will save many lives, cure diseases an ...

    Human Cloning Biological Aspects True human cloning involves taking a somatic cell from a person and removing its nucleus. Then the nucleus of a fertilized egg cell is removed and placed in the somatic cell. This is impossible in humans right now because the somatic cells are specialized and there are many genes that have been switched off in them that we do not know how to turn them back on. This was done with frogs however. The eggs were implanted with the nuclei from the intestinal lining of tadpoles. Most of these frogs died or grew into monsters. Of the ones that did grow normally they were sterile. Embryo splitting or blastomere separation is what is most commonly referred to as human ...

  • Human Cloning Is It Etical - 782 words
    Human Cloning Is It Etical? Human cloning is the ability to take a cell from a human donor, take out the nucleus and place it in a unfertilized human egg. Finally the egg is placed into a female body in which the egg delelvops into a younger duplicate of the nucleus donor (sex depending on where the nucleus originated). However, in society such as ours which divides church and state, laws governing human cloning will have to reflect ethical positions that are not based on any God or set of religious beliefs. Issues that have been introduced are of the following: 1.possible harm to the embryo 2.degradation of the parent and family life 3.objectitivation of children and social harm. The possib ...

  • Human Cloning: The Ethical Issues - 1,770 words
    Human Cloning: The Ethical Issues Ever since the successful cloning of an adult sheep, world has been buzzing about the historical event. Dolly the sheep has redefined the meaning of the words identical twin. Not only does she look like her mother, she has the same genetic makeup as her. This experiment was not only was thought of as impossible, but unthinkable. It was achieved in July 1996 by Dr. Ian Wilmut of the Roslin Institute in Roslin, Scotland. Dolly was announced to the public when she was seven-months old, on February 23, 1997. Since the birth of Dolly, the Wilmuts Institute has cloned seven more sheep from three different breeds. This process that successfully worked with the shee ...

  • In Support Of Human Cloning - 1,323 words
    In Support Of Human Cloning Human cloning is inevitable. As part of the progress of science, human cloning will take place regardless of who opposes it. In this paper I will explain what human cloning is, some of the ethical and moral objections to it, some medical benefits it could serve, what many different religions think of cloning humans, and ultimately why I feel that this would be beneficial to our society. In order to understand the objections and the potential of human cloning, one must know exactly it is and how it is done. In order to clone a living being (animal or human), scientists begin with an egg (ovum) of an adult female. Women generally produce only one each month but can ...

If we criminalize human cloning, it will still exist, just simply go underground. Lee Silver, a biologist at Princeton and author of several books on human cloning, predicts that the first human clone will be born in a population where no one knows thats what it is. It will sneak in quietly when no one is looking (Many oppose 20). President Clinton recently signed a bill stating that no federal money would be allocated for cloning. This bill was signed as it was determined that federal money would be better spent providing health care, seeking cures for ...

  • Is Human Cloning Acceptable In Todays Society - 1,025 words
    Is Human Cloning Acceptable In Today's Society Is Human Cloning Acceptable in Todays Society? Imagine a twelve-year-old girl that has been diagnosed with an illness that will be fatal in the next ten years. This disease targets the heart and slowly deteriorates the myocardium of the heart. The twelve-year-old girl is placed behind fifty people on a list for a heart transplant. For that little girl, there seems to be no faith to which she can depend on for her heart transplant. What options does this girl have besides waiting for a heart transplant or waiting to die? Now, imagine a set of parents who are about to have a baby that was cloned from the father. The parents went for a regular chec ...

This argues the point that cloning can be ethical in the aspect that it will have its own personality and behaviors. I had an interview with Dr. Mike Harry who is a licensed veterinarian who practices at a successful walking horse farm in Shelbyville, Tennessee. While talking to Dr. Harry, I noticed a few similarities with a few of the walking horses he is associated with and Cigar. A world grand champion walking horse is not only valuable for his shows, but for his stud fees also. I asked Dr. Harry a fe ...

  • Leave Human Cloning To Mother Nature - 858 words
    Leave Human Cloning To Mother Nature It's been three years since the birth of Dolly, the world's first successfully cloned animal. The announcement of her birth brought about much ado and sparked many debates concerning the morality of cloning. In the three years since Dolly was created, the debate over cloning has swelled and receded, but has never been put to rest. A compelling issue that has come into focus in the past several years is the idea of human cloning. Many scientists believe that it is inevitable because the technology is there, and anything that can be done eventually will be done. They preach the value of human clones, dropping phrases like 'cure for disease' and 'prolonged l ...

  • Should Human Cloning Be Permitted - 996 words
    Should Human Cloning Be Permitted? Should Human Cloning Be Permitted? For years, part of the American public, and humans in general, have been fascinated with the possibility of creating human life by other than natural means. There are many that strongly disagree with the idea of human cloning. It certainly wasn't surprising when they were able to clone a sheep or a pig, and will not be surprising if someday scientists will be able to clone a human being. Should cloning for human benefits or even human cloning itself be allowed in society today? That is a question we must ask ourselves. On one side of the issue are those who believe that human cloning should be permitted. One thing that sho ...

Creating a human life with just a gene is like taking a big risk, because there are selfish genes, pleasure genes, seeking genes, violence genes, celebrity genes,gay genes, couch potatoes genes, depression genes, genes for genius, genes for saving, and even genes for sinning. (9. Should Congress Prohibit All Human Cloning Experimentations? Pg. 50). Getting one of these particular genes is not what you would want in a person. It has been simply shown that there are many possibilities that a child will be born with an unwanted gene(s). Most ...

  • The Benefits Of Human Cloning - 1,044 words
    The benefits of human cloning There are many ways in which in which human cloning is expected to benefit mankind. Below is a list of ways that it is expected to help people. This list is far from complete. Human cloning technology could be used to reverse heart attacks. Scientists believe that they may be able to treat heart attack victims by cloning their healthy heart cells and injecting them into the areas of the heart that have been damaged. Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States and several other industrialized countries. There has been a breakthrough with human stem cells. Embryonic stem cells can be grown to produce organs or tissues to repair or replace damaged o ...

  • Banning On Cloning Is Unjust - 615 words
    Banning On Cloning Is Unjust! On February 24, 1997, the world was shocked and fascinated by the announcement of Ian Wilmut and his colleagues. A press release stated that they had successfully cloned a sheep from a single cell of an adult sheep. Since then, cloning has become one of the most controversial and widely discussed topics. The issue that gets the greatest focus is human cloning, and there has been an onslaught of protests and people lobbying for a ban on it. However, there is a real danger that prohibitions on cloning will open the door to inappropriate restrictions on accepted medical and genetic practices. Therefore, the banning of cloning is unjust. The most popular objection t ...

Another method, "gamete intrafallopian transfer" (GIFT), is done by injecting sperm and an unfertilized egg into a fallopian tube, at which time conception and implantation will occur (Leone, Reproductive 13). Lastly is the "zona cracking" method. This technique involves piercing the outer layer of the egg and placing a single sperm cell within the egg, then embedding the fertilized egg into the woman (Leone, Reproductive 13). There is yet another well-known fashion for infertile couples to conceive a child - surrogate motherhood. In this process, the fertilized egg of one woman is allowed to develop in the womb of another. Su ...

    Cloning Cloning Twenty-five years ago, scientists thought that cloning was virtually impossible. In the last five years, the science of cloning, has come to realization. What is a clone? A clone is a duplicate - much like a photocopy is a duplicate, or copy, of a document (Kolate, 238). A good example of copies that occur in nature are identical twins, which are duplicates of each other. On a daily basis, molecular geneticists and other scientists use cloning techniques to replicate various genetic materials such as gene segments and cells (Kolate, 238). Recently the cloning of a living life form was brought from the realms of science fiction to reality with the cloning of a sheep named Doll ...

    Cloning Nicole Pluta November 29, 1998 Scientific experimentation has led us to many great discoveries such as: Chemotherapy, heart surgery, and bone marrow transplants. Recently scientists have discovered a new way to heal humans. This is known as cloning. Although they have yet to clone a human they have cloned sheep. Cloning has brought up a huge controversy among the American people. There are two sides to the story. Either you agree with cloning or you dont. The only way to help make that decision is to look at the good and bad points of cloning. There are many positive aspects of human and non-human cloning. Human cloning technology could be used to reverse the number one killer in the ...

    Cloning Cloning: Recently, we have all seen the controversy over whether or not we should attempt to clone. If you haven't heard: A group of scientists in Scotland announced the birth of a sheep cloned from embryonic cells, presaging Dolly. Dolly's was the birth heard round the world. The first mammal ever cloned from a single adult cell, she was living proof that scientists had solved one of the most challenging problems of cell biology. Her creation raised a troubling question: Can humans, too, be cloned? And if so, Should humans be able to play God? Cloning has been an idea that the world has awaited and feared for decades. Cloning has been around since the 1950s when 2 scientists made a ...

    Cloning Cloning In the past few years, the topic of cloning has been in the news a lot. It is a very controversial issue, with many opposing viewpoints. While some find it acceptable, others object for religious reasons. A big concern is the possibility of abuse of this new technology. One of the big questions is Where will we stop? We may start by just experimenting and studying, but then what? Manufacturing human bodies for spare parts? No one can be sure where it will stop. The Supreme court says that everyone has the right to make their own reproductive decisions without government interference, but now it is proposing bans on human cloning. These bans prevent the very research needed to ...
