... bryology of 1990 in Great Britain maintains policies and also establishes a group to oversee human cloning activities. The Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority is involved in deciding where to draw ethical boundaries and is empowered to forbid human reproductive cloning in the United Kingdom (Appendix A.17). They also ensure that the current existing law is adequate. The creation of an organization modeled after the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority in Britain is what is being proposed for the state of California. Advantages Unethical research studies would not be permitted to take place. Any loopholes in current policies can be addressed by the agenc ...

Have you ever heard the saying, no two people are alike? Well what if that statement was to be made false? Imagine you are walking down the street and you accidentally bump into some body and you look up to you realize that you are apologizing to yourself. How would you feel if you were looking at yourself with no mirror? If we leave it up to the government you could very well be put into that situation. Is cloning ethical or unethical? I believe that cloning is unethical and should be stopped. If there were supposed to be two of a person than their mother would have had twins. Cloning is like playing God and we all know that we cant be God so why try to be something we are not? In a religio ...

Farewell To The Fiction In The Science Of Cloning - 933 words
In his 1930s futuristic novel, Brave New World, Aldous Huxley predicted a society where the human race was created in a laboratory and carried to term in incubators. At the time it was regarded as being ludicrously impossible. The idea of cloning in the eighties required multiple reproductions of specialized cells. Even then, the possibility of cloning was unachievable. Recently, scientists cloned a lamb, simply by replicating the cell in the skin tissue. It is now happening in all parts of the world: Scotland, England, America, and Australia. As technology increases, doubts and what-ifs turn into realities. Three essays were examined concerning cloning endangered and extinct animals and the ...

Cloning In Our World - 1,544 words
One of the latest advancements in technology is that of cloning. Cloning is the process of creating an identical copy of an original. In general, cloning is used in three contexts. First is using specialized DNA technology to produce multiple, exact copies of a single gene or other segment of DNA. This process is called cloning DNA. A second type of cloning exploits the natural process of cell division to make many copies of an entire cell. A third type of cloning produces complete, genetically identical animals such as the famous Scottish sheep, Dolly. The majority of people in America believe that cloning is unethical due to some moral issues. Others are afraid that cloning could me misuse ...

Cloning - 1,042 words
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, Alzheimers, and cancer. However, because reproductive cloning involves the creation of a specific being with specific char ...

Human Cloning - 1,138 words
Should cloning for human benefits or even human cloning itself be allowed in society today? That is a question we must ask ourselves. Less than two years ago, an event in genetic history changed the worlds perspective on "Reproduction" and added to the worlds conscience a new element to the study of Biology. This event immediately caught my interest and intrigued me. It was the birth of a unique sheep named Dolly. Dolly was a clone sheep born on February 12th 1997 and this sheep doesnt have a father or mother. Dolly's existence stuck like super glue onto the worlds mind and refused to let go. The world started pondering the true potential of cloning and how it could affect mankind. The world ...

Clones & Other Forms Of Genetic Engineering Are All Wrong & Can Never Be Justified. Do You Agree? - 1,335 words
Argue a case for or against Clone is the title given to any organisms that are genetically identical. Cloning can be classified as a form of genetic engineering including AID (Artificial Insemination Donor) and AIH (Artificial Insemination Husband) and IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation). AID is the injecting of the semen of a male donor into the womans womb and AIH is the same with the difference that the semen is of the husband These forms of artificial conception have been questioned especially within religions as they can be seen as unnatural and an attempt to meddle with nature. The two methods of cloning are reproductive and therapeutic. Whilst reproductive cloning leads to the creation of a ...

Money Spent On Research Is Almost A Good Investment, Even When The Results Of That Research Are Cont - 659 words
Money spent on research is almost a good investment, even when the results of that research are controversial. Here we are talking about a good investment on a controversial research. A good investment is something where we get good returns. Research has always been a good return as it throws light on some of the hidden information. In this fast growing world information is power as well as key to success. Research is an active, diligent and systematic process of inquiry in order to discover, interpret or revise facts, events, behaviors, or theories, or to make practical applications with the help of such facts, laws or theories. Investing money on such a thing always proves to be fruitful. ...

Interesting Cloning Proposal - 725 words
In 1997, researchers led by embryologist Ian Wilmut, found a way to do the seemingly impossible they produced Dolly, the first clone of adult mammal. Since then, scientists around the world have been trying to duplicate and advance the work in a variety of species from mice to monkeys. Some have succeeded, but many more have been thwarted in their efforts. A few researchers had even set out to clone human, without success. But very recently, scientists at Advanced Cell Technology, a small biotech start-up company in Worcester, Mass., announced that they have successfully engineered the world's first cloned human embryo. The scientists described their laboratory success the transfer of human ...

Human Cloning - 1,779 words
The possibility of human cloning was raised when Scottish scientists, led by Dr. Ian Wilmut at the Roslin Institute, created the much-celebrated sheep "Dolly". Being the first mammal ever cloned this aroused worldwide interest and concern because of its scientific and ethical implications. The feat, cited by Science Magazine as the breakthrough of 1997, also generated uncertainty over the meaning of "cloning" -- an umbrella term traditionally used by scientists to describe different processes for duplicating biological material. Since this creation, mice, goats, cows and pigs have been successfully cloned around the world. This has made human cloning a real possibility. Cloning is the produc ...

Societal Debate On Cloning - 1,003 words
1. Introduction When the birth of the cloned sheep Dolly became headline news in February 1997, cloning instantly turned into a heated topic for debate all over the world. Almost three years on, it seemed the right moment to collect and share the experiences gained within various countries with this debate on cloning. For this aim the Rathenau Institute, the Dutch parliamentary technology assessment organization, set up a one-day international symposium on November 19, 1999 in Amsterdam, with speakers from three continents and seven different countries: Denmark, Great Britain, Italy, Switzerland, The Netherlands, United States, and South Korea. All speakers were actively involved in organizi ...

Societal Debate On Cloning - 1,040 words
... strong resentment against government regulation and the belief in free enterprise and technological progress is dominant. As a result of this and the fact that there is no legal prohibition in force "it is perfectly possible that tomorrow you will read in the newspaper that a human being has been cloned in the US." An important effect of the new biotechnology on American culture is, according to Bereano, "genetic essentialism". This is the reductionist approach, which posits that genetic makeup determines the essence of a human and that the person's life is largely a playing out of a genetic script, minimizing environmental and cultural influences. The discussion on the cloning of people ...

Cloning Research - 1,465 words
"To be or not to be..." In the last fifty years new forms of technology have been the center of attention for every human being. It seems that every day scientists come up with some new, perhaps even controversial, and exciting ways to improve the quality of life. These new technologies affect every aspect of life, as we know it. One such technology is the research being done in the area of cloning. Cloning is the production of one or more cells, individual plants, or animals that are genetically identical to another cell, plant or animal. Although the first steps forward in cloning have brought a storm of protest, the experimental research should be studied to prolong the existence of human ...

Stem Cell Dilema - 1,308 words
There are many controversies over whether stem cells should be studied, but before I discuss that topic lets discuss what a stem cell actually is. Stem cells are cells that can basically form into any type of cell, they are found in bone marrow, embryos, fetuses, and blood from the umbilical cord. Early in development, a human embryo is made up of a hollow ball of cells called a "blastocyst". Blastocyst cells divide and eventually develop into all of the tissues and organs of a human being, a process called "differentiation". Embryonic stem cells can be grown in the laboratory from blastocysts and made to differentiate into nerve, liver, muscle, blood, and other cells. Scientists hope to con ...

The Stem Cell Dilemma - 1,758 words
The Stem Cell Dilemma Every day, nearly 3,000 people die while waiting for an organ transplant (D'Agnese). Moreover, 66,000 people are still on an organ donor list in the United States, few of which will ever see their name come up on that list ("Improving"). Many people believe nothing can be done about this sad fact. However, this is not the case. Studies on stem-cell research point toward a solution to this deadly problem. With efficient use of stem cells, many diseases and medical problems could be solved. Stem-cells are very young, specialized cells. Usually coming from a human embryo, they have the ability to develop into more specialized groups of cells or tissues ("Stem Cells: A Prim ...
