Cloning: an Interference of Nature's Design

Health risks from mutation of genes are risky. There is a concern that there is the possibility that the genetic material used from the adult will continue to age so that the genes in a newborn baby clone could be for example 30 years old or more when it is born. Many attempts at animal cloning produced disfigured bodies with severe abnormalities. However some abnormalities may not appear until after birth. A cloned cow recently died several weeks after birth with abnormality of blood cell production.

Dolly the Sheep died prematurely of severe lung disease in February 2003, and also suffered from arthritis at an unexpectedly early age, which is probably linked to the cloning process. Even if a few cloned babies are born apparently normal we will have to wait up to 20 years to be sure they are not going to have problems later for example growing old too fast. Many clones born in the future may have severe medical problems.

Emotional problems can grow as a cloned child grows up knowing her mother is her sister, her grandmother is her mother and her father is her brother-in-law. Every time her mother looks at her, she is seeing herself growing up. It is an unbearable emotional pressure on teenagers trying their identity. What happens to a marriage when the “father” sees his wife’s clone grow up into the exact replica of the beautiful 18 year old he fell in love with 35 years ago?

It would be horrible to clone people because we all are design by the nature, and if we take matter at our hands, it will make unbalance, not that it is already. Cloning research is another case. Doing research on cloning to gain knowledge is acceptable. A clone has a soul like us and it is unbearable to think that we would treat the clones different, which I believe we would have done if there was one. I highly think cloning is wrong because it will give the clone emotional problems.
