Cloning Should Be Permitted 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 Parkinsons 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.
