Should cloning be accepted?


A few years ago if you were to ask someone about cloning, they would probably tell you that it’s impossible. How ever this appears to be the most major and most talked about breakthrough in the 20th century, and we are not even ready for it.


But what is cloning, where are its roots?


A clone is a group of organisms that are genetically identical. The one process of cloning, called nuclear transfer, replaces the nucleus of an immature egg with another cell. When the nucleus has been inserted into the egg cell, the cell is given an electric shock to initiate the development. Naturally it’s the sperm’s role.


First cloning began in 1958. The first attempt to make a clone was a carrot. Animal cells were first attempted to be cloned in 1964. The victim animal was a toad. It was unsuccessful because the incubator where the nuclei that contained the original parent’s information was destroyed under ultraviolet light. The first successful animal clone was only achieved after about 20 years, scientists from Switzerland and U.S. cloned a mouse.


That’s all about artificial cloning. But in our natural life cloning also occurs, but perhaps we don’t accept it as been cloning, for example: When a mother has identical twins or triplets or when you cut up the body of a starfish or a rain worm the parts will regenerate into completely different individuals. An artificial human clone was never successful. And perhaps the most publicized cloning of an animal was the sheep called Dolly, but even that experiment took 277 attempts before a success.


Is cloning actually ethical? Is it right? Will nature accept it?


I personally disagree with animal and human cloning, let’s look at some reasons why I think so.


When people will get old and their organs wouldn’t be able to function properly then cloned ones will be transplanted, again, and again. People’s age will accede 150 then after even newer technologies will be known to men and we will be able to live for 200 years. I think that Christian people will disagree with leaving for ever. And it simply will get boring. What would guys do for the next 185 years; well I personally don’t have any particular plans.


One other concern is that transgenic animals that are used in cloning carry genes on there own, they might get transferred to humans with unknown consequences.


If it took 277 attempts to clone a sheep it would take a lot longer to clone a human. What will scientists do to all the unsuccessful clones, that could be mental or turn out as mutants, will they just kill these “people”, because they were a part of an experiment.


Even theoretically it will be impossible to make a perfect clone because of the difference of the way brain can develop. I think the more people will mess around with the reproduction more chances of things to go wrong will emerge.


Governments will want to make an army of clones that will have no family to loose and their minds will be set to die for their country. What if every country does it, it will turn in to a blood bath game. Once a clone is borne he is a human too, you know.


If cloning will be as easy as a Saturday garage business, what if criminals will use this to make clones of them selves, it will be impossible to catch them, and what if they use cloning to make large gangs.


If cloning was to be used on extinct animals the food chain will crash.


It’s a good idea to make crops that will be lethal to bugs and other animals, but then the insect population will decreased followed by birds and other animals witch again leads to food chain crash. If you think about it, if everything will have the same genetic structure it’s more likely that the entire population will be wiped out by a predator or a disease.


I only find one thing exiting about cloning extinct animals, we will never be bugged by “save the whales” foundation for money any more.


To my opinion plant or animal or human cloning will not bring any good to us.
