Cloning Should Be Permitted
Cloning has been a very controversial topic since it affects moral values of human beings
and other living things alike. In February 1997, scientists announced the birth of the first cloned
sheep, and this predicted the future of cloning possibilities. The scientists began extensive
experiments on cloning and have cloned both plants and animals successfully. The next step was
to clone actual human beings. Before the experiments could have been carried out, pressure from
the society started build on the scientists. Governments began to introduce bans on cloning,
because they felt cloning was not ethical and morally correct. Cloning has its cons but its pros
seem to overcome them greatly.
If cloning were allowed to be experimented, the scientists would find a way to clone body
organs which were exactly the same of an individual body organ. This would be beneficial to a
person who may have lost a body organ, such as a kidney, a liver and a lung. Scientists could
clone a particular organ for the individual, which would work better than a transplant organ.
Cloning would certainly expand the range of medicine greatly and enhance the possibilities
of conquering disease, such as Parkinson??s disease, cancer and other diseases that were
considered incurable . Also, cloning could be used to increase the population of endangered
species of animals and save them from extinction. It would help maintain a natural balance on
the earth ,and life cycle could be continued.
Cloning would certainly benefit couples who are infertile and want to have a child of their
own, and therefore they could use cloning to produce a baby with their similar characteristics. In
fact, they may be able to choose the characteristics of their child. Women who are single could
have a child by using cloning. Another goal of cloning was it could help to improve the qualities
of the crops for the agricultural industry.
Some people would suggest that cloning is unnatural and not ethically correct. However, it
is also unnatural and not ethically correct when you sick and take medicine. The whole of the
modern medicine world is based on unnaturalness, so it seems cloning would be part of that
modern medicine world. Some people also suggest that clones of human beings would behave in
different ways than a normal human beings would. This is wrong. As the clones of human beings
will have all the characteristics of a normal human being, they will behave like any other human
beings would behave.
In conclusion, I would like to say that cloning could be used in various ways to benefit the
lives of humans. It is undeniable that cloning will play an important part in our lives. Therefor,
the society and the government should accept this fact and permit the scientists to carry out more
research to eliminate any risks associated with cloning.
