Human Cloning Is Ethical
In our society today, Humans all over the world are in search for one thing, which is the evolutionary step in technology. The idea of this new evolutionary technology is human cloning, which is the reproduction of homo-sapiens through the DNA process without contact from male and female. The Process of human cloning has received very different aspects between societies and is also known as the most controversial debates in decade as we know.
First, to determine why human cloning is controversial, there must be an understanding of what human cloning is and what does cloning do. The science technology of cloning has been divided up to three parts which are: (1) recombinant DNA or DNA cloning, (2) reproductive cloning, and (3) therapeutic cloning. DNA cloning or recombinant DNA technology are referred when the cloning process is transferred from a DNA fragment to a self -replicating element, this DNA process has been practiced in biology labs ever since the 70's. Science today, has also practiced the recreation of animals besides humans which is called the reproductive cloning. Reproductive cloning is also referred in a process called "somatic cell nuclear transfer" which is scientists transfer genes from the nucleus of an adult donor to an egg which has been treated with chemicals in order to stimulate cell division, which results into a cloned embryo. The final part of cloning is also the most controversial part of cloning, which is "Therapeutic Cloning". This type of science can be also called "embryo cloning" which is the production of human embryos for the uses to treat diseases such as Alzheimer's, cancer, paraplegics, and other severe disease.
In February 1997 scientist in Scotland announced the birth of the cloned sheep Dolly, the began the future of cloning possibilities. Since then many animals and plants have been successfully cloned and none had...
