    The cloning of humans is now very close to reality, thanks to the historic scientific breakthrough of Dr. Ian Wilmut and his colleagues in the UK. This possibility is one of incredible potential benefit for all of us. Unfortunately the initial debate on this issue has been dominated by misleading, sensationalized accounts in the news media and negative emotional reactions derived from inaccurate science fiction. Much of the negativity about human cloning is based simply on the breathtaking nove...

    Topic: The ethics of human cloning Specific Purpose: My goal for this speech is two-fold. First, I desire to encourage my audience to think about the ethics of human cloning and to form an opinion of their own. Second, and for those who have an opinion already, I hope to create a modification in my audience's attitude so that they may consider the side of the human cloning debate for which I stand: an advocate of human cloning. Central Idea: Although there are risks involved in human cloning, th...

    Since the birth of dolly- the famous cloned sheep- in 1997, and the world has still been struggling into several social, scientific, and religious debates regarding cloning. Dolly's cloning created a spontaneous reaction that exposed the idea of human cloning.

    A clone is defined as a cell; group of cells, or organisms that are descended from a single original cell. Scientist Ian Wilmut can be credited with cloning the first mammal, Dolly the sheep, in February of 1997. From that point on ethical issues on cloning began to erupt. Many people are against cloning; then again many people are for human cloning. I am personally not against human cloning and feel that human cloning should be explored. There are many misconceptions of human cloning today....

    "A Chip Off the Old Cell" The actual process of cloning is nothing new. It began in the 1970 s with the cloning of frogs. Scientists have cloned plants and animals for years since then. Recently, there have been continuing controversies regarding the process of human cloning, and whether or not our society has a use for it. On July 5, 1996, scientist Ian Wilmot (after 277 attempts), created first born cloned mammal which was a healthy lamb by the name of "Dolly." A process called somatic nuclear...

    Human cloning is a very controversial issue. One can have many different opinions about it; for instance whether it is morally right or wrong. People can be for it, against it, or totally neutral about the whole issue. Some may argue that human cloning is too risky and could cause too many problems. However one would have to admit that although there are some downfalls of cloning, it can also be very beneficial and outweigh those downfalls. Human cloning is especially good for burn victims.

    Some scientists say they are ready to apply the technology of cloning to human beings, are we? I don't think human cloning should be allowed. It's against God's will, it is unhealthy, and it interferes with distinctiveness and individuality. There are plenty of more reasons that prove I don't like human cloning, but those three seem like the main three to me. Most of the people who oppose human cloning say it's because it's against God's will, in other words it's against their religion. I believ...

    Background: Cloning involves removing the nucleus from the unfertilised egg of an organism and introducing this nucleus (which contains DNA) into an egg cell of another organism that does not contain a nucleus. Subsequently, this newly created cell is transplanted into another organism, producing an organism genetically identical to the original one. Benefits of human cloning include the fact that various diseases may become manageable, such as cancer and diabetes. However, there are also disadv...
