Cloning is a science that not only has the promise of saving countless lives in today’s world but also offers the chance for a new life itself to be created. Cloning is the process of creating an identical copy of an original organism.This highly advanced medical process is the steppingstone to creating a world with limitless medical cures. Even though cloning goes is controversial and a religious taboo, it must be explored because it advances the overall knowledge in medical fields, it can help the reproduction of endangered species of animals and plants, and it allows the re-creation of organs used in medical donating.
Though the success rate of cloning has been rather low, cloning will allow for huge advancements in the medical field. The benefits of cloning in the medical world are limitless. Stem cells are the body's building blocks, responsible for developing, maintaining and repairing the body throughout life. As a result, they could be used to repair damaged or diseased organs and tissues. This would help the millions of patients in medical facilities in need of organ donors. Researchers are currently looking at cloning as a way to create genetically defined human stem cells for research and medical purposes (“Cloning in Focus” 1). The research of stem cells will play an important role in the creation of many immunization medicines. Cloning will not only recreate identical copies of an organism, but it will bring about more medical knowledge on human stem cells and possibly many undiscovered cures for deadly illnesses. Scientists believe that cloning may be used to create stem cells genetically compatible with the somatic cell donor (“Cloning”). Somatic cells are any of the cells of the body that compose the tissues, organs, and parts of that individual other than the germ cells. Recombinant DNA is DNA in which one or more segments or genes have been inserted, either naturally or by...
