cloning

Length: 2 Pages 616 Words

Genetics/Cloning It is often asked whether it is right for human beings to manipulate human genes, as if this were in some sense "playing God" by altering fundamental aspects of human makeup (and also that of plants and animals) which are God's business only, or simply that it is dangerous "tampering with nature" in a way which we have neither the right nor the skill to do? If science is therefore a proper human activity, and if technology today is a practical application, then it seems arbitrary to draw a line at the level of genetics, rather than, say, chemistry, nuclear physics or, pharmacology, radiation therapy or surgery. Some would go further and say that as a matter of very principal, technology can and must never be limited. Science, and the power to create new technologies and advancements is an expression of God's gift of human creativity. Genetics also provides better research capabilities for Continue...

There are endless possibilities here genetics could also provide children who need organ transplants to have a clone born to donate organs. Equally important, women who are single could have a child using cloning instead of in-vitro fertilization. Cloning is comparable in safety to a number of other medical procedures. ------------------------------------------------------------------------Bibliography. Cloning would give couples who are at risk of producing a child with a genetic defect the chance to produce a healthy child. A clone would have as much of a sense of individuality as do twins. Cloning would enable infertile couples to have children of their own. People also wonder what mental and emotional problems would result if a clone were to find out that he or she was cloned. Objections to cloning are similar to objections raised against previous scientific achievements, for example, heart transplants and test-tube babies, that later came to be widely accepted. As well genetics can help out people who can not have children, for instance, couples who are infertile, or have genetic disorders, could use cloning to produce a child. Although many people believe that cloning would produce an instant carbon copy of an adult person, cloning would, in reality, produce what amounts to a delayed identical twin, several years or even decades younger than the person who donated the cell from which the clone was produced. They often look different because of different preferences in clothing and hairstyle. Much of the public's concern is based on misconceptions. Identical twins are genetic carbon copies, but they are separate individuals.
