Human Cloning: Morally Wrong, Sinful, and Dangerous

Sheep, cattle and further animals have now been replicated by the cloning method which is known as somatic cell nuclear transfer. The process is that an unfertilized egg has its nucleus removed or inactivated, and swapped with the nucleus from an animal’s body cell. This nucleus, enclosing the animal’s complete genetic code, is moved to… View Article

Ethics of Human Cloning

In 1971 James D. Watson claimed that one day human cloning would be workable and noted that “as many people as possible be informed about the new ways for human reproduction and their potential consequences, both good and bad”(Burley and Harris 2001, p. 69). Watson’s statement was given little attention. In 1997, the birth of… View Article

Ethical Implications of Cloning and Stem Cell Research

Bio-medical breakthroughs in the fields of genetic and tissue engineering hold great promise. However, as modern medicine advances, it often poses major ethical issues on which people are seriously divided. The argument in favor of proceeding with research at unrestrained pace is mainly advocated by scientists and medical experts who would like to see some… View Article

Human Cloning and the Future

In his work from 2002 “Religion and Human Cloning: An Exploratory Analysis of the First Available Opinion Data”, John Evans proudly states a few possible benefits, or advantages, of human ‘therapeutic’ cloning. While talking about embryonic stem cells, he states “these cells can eventually be used to treat diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and kidney… View Article

Do The Possible Benefits Of Cloning Outweigh The Risks

Cloning is the technological development of new cells from naturally existing cells with a view to developing super qualities. This leads to production of one or more individual plants or animals (Partly or wholly) that are genetically identical to an original plant or animal There are two types of cloning: Artificial twinning. Its development is… View Article

The Pros of Therapeutic Cloning

Are you for or against human cloning? Before you answer this pertinent question, picture this. A loved one who is very dear to you is diagnosed with a serious disease such as muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, or even diabetes. If they could be treated, cured or have their life saved by stem cells or the… View Article

Human cloning

If there was one technology that the world never accepted, then it will be the cloning of humans. Just 30 hours after the news of a cloned lamb hit the streets, movements against human cloning already started forming (Pence 1998, p. 1). 90 days after the study, a law against human cloning was already being… View Article

History of Human Cloning in China

Human Cloning has been one of the most intriguing topics in modern day Science. It has fascinated scientist and researchers alike. Cloning is a process of asexually reproducing identical individuals with similar genetic make-up. It also refers to a process in biotechnology that generates multiple copies of a DNA fragment. The term clone comes from… View Article

Reasons Why Cloning is Unethical

From the day that ‘Dolly the sheep’ made it to the headline news, the controversy regarding her existence has never ceased. It is quite amazing, how the issues surrounding a sheep could create such a great divide on public opinion, stir up much debate in scientific halls, and whose implications caused a dilemma that reached… View Article

Against Human Cloning- Argumentative

Cloning in general has been a rising debate across the globe since before Dolly the sheep was cloned in 1996. The success of being able to clone an animal brought scientists to wonder about a more challenging task, cloning humans. This consideration is morally wrong and should not be stood for. Some people seem not… View Article

The advantages and disadvantages of cloning

The creation of an identical copy of something is the process of cloning. It is simply a form of asexual reproduction. Cloning is a big issue in todays world of science because of the potential benefits, the risks involved, and medical, ethical and religious conflicts. Plants and animals have already been cloned and stem cell… View Article

Human Cloning

“What we call process is the exchange of one nuisance for another nuisance.” This quote by Henry Havelook Ellis describes the outcome of cloning that the world has seen so far and will continue to see if strict laws regulating cloning research are not set into place.
