Should Cloning be Banned, and if so, which kind?

Posted by: thewhovian89

Reproductive cloning is cloning in a traditional since, making live babies, therapeutic cloning is destroying embryos to harvest stem cells. Remember, stem cells can be used to treat diseases.

Unsure

Whos bright idea was it to breed sheep with spider silk in their milk versus breeding giant spiders? Did that step just get skipped because of Sci Fi renditions of giant killer spiders?

Back on topic though ... Animal cloning is ok, human cloning is a no go.

Cloning and its Advantages Organ Replacement This form of cloning allows scientists to take a small amount of cells from an organ, and harvest an entirely new, functioning one. This is extremely beneficial because of the large amount of people that are on an organ donor waiting list. Cloning Help Infertile Couples to Have Children Fertility problems could also be potentially eased with the use of genetic cloning. The child could have DNA and qualities from both parents, instead of just one. With this cloning, somatic cells are acquired from male with female eggs and surrogate mother. The process normally includes the extraction of nucleus in the somatic cell. Then, somatic cells are inserted in the egg. Afterwards, the egg is stimulated and an embryo is developed. It is also inserted in the surrogate mother, wherein she needs to carry it for nine months. The Benefits of Growing Eminent Persons Very influential and historical people could possibly be recreated. People such as Albert Einstein and Martin Luther King Jr. Could, theoretically, be brought back to life to educate and help people in today’s world. ============================================================================================= Cloning and its Disadvantages A Degree of Uncertainty Many of the repercussions and effects of cloning remain unknown. It is a new world of science that is still continually be discovered. There is no real way to tell what the social, mental, and medical consequences may be endured due to cloning. New Diseases Cell mutation is a very real possibility with genetic cloning. This may result in new and more aggressive genetic disease to begin within the human race, creating a lot of problems. Many people believe that an event like this will be the demise of civilization. Organ Rejection Because of Cell Mutation Although the technique utilizes the cells of the organ of the recipient, there is still a chance that the cells will mutate. This results to a significant difference on the cell makeup between the replicated and original organ.

Well, the cloning might cause harm to the copied one, and the pasted ones might say they are the real one, just like a piece of a movie. Also, there is a high possibility of going to a problem while someone is getting scanned.

Cloning is very expensive and will wreck the economy

Who are we......Are we GOD!!!! NO then why create clones.

@junhyeok clones are organisms that are exact copies of a person or animal by removing a mature somatic cell, such as a skin cell, from an animal or human that they want to copy. They then transfer the DNA of the donor animals/humans somatic cell into an egg cell, or oocyte, that has had its own DNA-containing the nucleus removed . There is no scanning involved.
