Cloning takes up quite a part in genetic engineering, and the uses of it can be debatable. Some people think and say that cloning is unjust and is abuse to the therapeutic material or human being. Others say that it is beneficial for our society and useful. As for my part of the debatable argument, I believe that cloning should be allowed in our society. Here are some reasons and evidence why I believe that statement is true.


Cloning provides a service towards the therapeutic material that is being tested or cloned. Cloning helps to cure diseases with the stem cells, such as heart diseases, diabetes, and so on. In the video “Playing God”, it states that we can clone foods, too. Many vegetables and fruits have been produced in this way. Many farmers are now trying to come up with ideas and ways to input much more vitamins and minerals into the plants, making them healthier and provide a more nutritious environment for humankind. The genetically modified foods also resist diseases.


Cloning has benefits in our daily lives, too. We have long since realized that all the natural food in the world isn’t unlimited. In the video “Clone” by National Geographic, they mention that you can clone one animal, such as a chicken, and make several of them, all of them identical to one another. The process includes taking the nuclei from the cells of the original chicken and inputting them into eggs without the nuclei in it. So many eggs can be created and hatched, creating more chickens to either produce eggs or meat. It tastes the same, too. Cloning can also help people the pain from waiting for a generous donor that will donate a kidney, or a liver, or a lung, and so on. Instead of the person actually giving the organ away, the specialists could take cell samples from the donor and clone it, creating a new organ for the diseased patient. This organ will be as healthy as the original one, just new. Cloning could also help devastated families out by making a clone of someone in the family, and have a baby for those who cannot become pregnant or have failed to give birth. This goes the same for animals, too. We can have much more pets in this way.


These points above are the reasons why I believe that cloning should be allowed. Some may say that cloning is cruel towards the society, and is a disgrace to our race, but we aren’t destroying human lives; we’re making life more possible. Reproductive cloning would foster an understanding of children and of people in general, as objects that can be designed and manufactured to possess specific characteristics. Cloning is for the better health of the humans, it can cure diseases, make new organs for the defective, and we don’t do it just for fun; we do it to help the society get better. It isn’t abuse to the human race; it is beneficial to our health and knowledge. If Dolly the Sheep hadn’t been cloned, if the scientists had no enthusiasm to try the 277the trial, would we have the knowledge that we have today? I think not! The fact that cloning can be done is an accomplishment in the human society. The abilities of people to clone and make new models will help advance and further the society both technologically and intellectually. The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.

No Cloning Shouldn't be allowed, I know god forbid we run out of food, and humans which is highly unlikely because somewhere down the road there will be a screw up who rapes someone and them bam a child and then the process is going to continue, the world isn't perfect after all. Food we are not going to run out we've survived this long I think us humans are smart enough to live. Cloning will only mess up our food supply, you really don't know the effects it could have on us if we eat it, and if you clone us who knows what could happen, deform people and all of the stuff lets stick to the basics before we go messing with humans and food supply

Clonning kidding me? I agree if we clone our parents or siblings but in general clonning will be a bad choice since good people will get convicted for crimes due to their clones.
