cloning argument - Cloning: Choice is Ethical Thousands of people a year are placed on the organ donor's list. Thousands of people a year are diagnosed with diseases that are dubbed fatal unless a transplant or transfusion is given. This has created a large demand for some alternative method to the present donor practice. Research in the "taboo" science of cloning seems to provide a viable method in which to aid the problem aforementioned and many others as well. But is it ethical. Cloning technology is expected to aid the result in several medical breakthroughs....   [tags: essays research papers] 1383 words

Human Cloning - Human Cloning For the last few decades, cloning was a fictitious idea that lay deep within the pages of sci-fi novels and movies. The very idea that cloning could one day become reality was thought to be a scientific impossibility by many experts. But on February 22, 1997, what was thought to be purely science fiction became reality. That day, a team from the Roslin Institute, led by Dr. Ian Wilmut, changed the history forever by revealing what looked like an average sheep. And its name was Dolly....   [tags: Biology] 1541 words

Human Reproductive Cloning Should be Banned - Human Reproductive Cloning Should be Banned The issues concerning human reproductive cloning are shrouded in controversy, perhaps overshadowing the true advantages of cloning technology. Therapeutic cloning, which is often misunderstood as reproductive cloning, is less controversial than the latter as it does not involve the creating of an individual being. Instead, vital stem cells are extracted from human embryos, in order to generate tissues and organs for transplant. The goal of this process is strictly to harvest stem cells, resulting in the creation of “cloned organs”, which can be used to treat heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive] 1054 words

The March edition of the Life Extension Foundation’s (LEF) magazine vocally calls for American citizens to write to their Senators and stop an anti-cloning bill from passage through both Houses (See Figure 1.) While the public argues over short-term questions – such as what is the definition of cloning, at what point does life begin, and is cloning bad – we must examine the hidden future potential and consequences of therapeutic cloning....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]

Cloning and Genetical Enginering - If it Ain't Broke, Why Fix it? - Cloning and Genetical Enginering - If it Ain't Broke, Why Fix it. Taking a Pro or Con stand on cloning is difficult, because we know very little about genes, and there are different genetic sciences involved. We must, as Socrates so sagaciously points out, define the subject. Only then can we debate it. There is obviously the full-bore version of cloning, being the complete duplication of an existing life-form, be it plant, animal, or human. (I separate animal and human purely for logistics.) We copy Sheep A's genes, strand by strand, and produce an exact duplicate....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Argument Essays] 843 words

Stem Cell Research and a Ban on Human Cloning - Stem Cell Research and a Ban on Human Cloning   Some biotechnology companies claim that a ban on producing human embryos through cloning would stall important research in generating "stem cells" to cure a variety of diseases [Cong. Record, 2/5/98, S425]. To put this claim in perspective:   1. Cloning is desired as a source of "customized stem cell lines" which would be an exact genetic match to each individual patient with a given disease. But this would require each individual patient to undergo somatic cell nuclear transfer to produce one or many living human embryos who genetically are the patient's identical twin sisters or brothers....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics] 1465 words

Cloning Endangered Species only Delays Extinction - Cloning Endangered Species only Delays Extinction   Last week, scientists revealed they have successfully cloned an endangered Asian gaur -- a stocky ox-like animal with a humped back. Such a technological breakthrough provides confidence that we will soon have the endangered species problem under control. Or does it.   Though the university's burgeoning squirrel population seems to indicate otherwise, species extinction is a grave problem in most parts of the world. Species are imperiled by myriad causes, but the four main perpetrators are habitat destruction and alteration, exotic or invasive species, overhunting and pollution....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics] 698 words

Cloning - It’s Time to Stop the Cesorship of Science - It’s Time to Stop the Cesorship of Science How responsible are scientists for science and its applications. In a recent issue of the journal Science the 1995 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Sir Joseph Rotblat, proposes a Hippocratic oath for scientists. He is strongly opposed to the idea that science is neutral and that scientists are not to be blamed for its misapplication. Therefore, he proposes an oath, or pledge, initiated by the Pugwash Group in the United States (Science 286, 1475 1999)....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics] 773 words

Advocating a Second Creation - When we hear the words human cloning we think of books and movies like Jurassic Park, which show us the darker side of cloning, and all of the possible complications, but they never seem to fully encompass the need we have for cloning, as humans beings. Since its beginnings cloning has raised many a debate, on its scientific viability and the morality behind the idea of manufacturing exact genetic copies of ourselves. Those who speak from a moral standpoint fall on the side against human cloning, those who disagree with the idea however fail to acknowledge the numerous benefits that cloning offer us as human beings....   [tags: human cloning, morality, stem cell, technology]

We Must Educate Ourselves Before Passing Laws Restricting Cloning and Genetic Engineering -      Biotechnology and genetic engineering involve the cloning of animal cells and organisms, but they also involve the alteration of an organism in an effort to make it more perfect, whether it is a crop, an animal, or even a human being. Obviously the cloning of humans or the cloning of human cells is much different than the cloning of genetically superior livestock or a better quality, higher yielding food crop, and people throughout the world realize this. The cloning of human beings has become one of the worst fears in our society today and for that reason many laws have been passed throughout European countries and North America in an effort to ban human cloning....   [tags: Genetic Engineering Essays]
