    Cloning Attempts to create a human being by cloning should be banned for several reasons. Although cloning has some benefits, attempts to clone a human will bring up many moral and ethical issues. Seppa (1997) reports that the National Bioethics Advisory Commission (NABC) concludes that it would be morally unacceptable for anyone in the public or private sector... to attempt to create a child by implanting cloned embryos in a woman. Cloning has many benefits, but it also poses great risks to the...
  • Clone An Embryo
    712 words
    In recent years, the issue of cloning has been up for debate worldwide. Cloning is the production of one or more individual plants or animals that are genetically identical to another plant or animal. There are two different types of cloning procedures, embryo cloning and adult DNA cloning. Embryo cloning occurs when sperm and egg cells are mixed in a glass dish. After conception, the zygote (fertilized egg) is allowed to divide and nutrients are added to promote cell division. The cells then fu...

    Cloning Cloning is the production of duplicate copies of genetic material, cells, or entire multicellular living organisms. The copies are referred to as clones. Cloning occurs naturally and is also engineered by human beings. The possibility that people might be cloned from the cells of a single adult human being had long been a subject primarily of fantasy and science fiction but became very definite at the end of the 20th century. This possibility stemmed from the successful cloning of lower ...

    Cloning of Animals On Sunday, February 23, 1997, Scottish researchers broke one of nature's greatest laws by cloning a lamb from a single cell of an adult ewe. This breakthrough opens the door to the possibility for the cloning of other mammals including humans. This remarkable achievement is being looked at as a great advancement in animal agriculture. But this achievement could lead to ethical questions of standard. Researchers lead by Ian Wilmot of the Roslin Institute in Midlothian, Scotland...
  • Ian Wilmut's Cloned Sheep
    585 words
    Introduction The idea of cloning has been around for a while, but the thought of it becoming a reality is surprisingly new. Cloning has been all over the papers and the news lately, mostly caused by the death of possibly the world's most famous animal behind Lassie, Ian Wilmut's cloned sheep, Dolly. In 1880, a man named Walter Sutton made one of the most important discoveries towards cloning- he proved that chromosomes hold genetic information. This discovery allowed us to get to where we are in...
  • Cloning In Humans
    326 words
    The Bioethical Focus article entitled "Cloning in Humans" gives us some basic background information on cloning. However, after reading this article I wanted more insight on the topic of cloning, so I researched it more in depth on the Internet. After looking up a few different articles on cloning I have come to a decision concerning where I stand on this controversial issue. Personally, I believe that human cloning should be banned in the United States, except for in few certain circumstances. ...
  • Clone A Frog From An Embryonic Cell

    Multiple Source Essay Cloning: What is the Right thing to do? Cloning offers many applications, especially in medicine, however, in spite of the many advantages, many people still consider the idea of human cloning, and the practice of cloning all together to be immoral. This opinion is rarely based on a careful analysis of facts, often only a spontaneous reaction. Cloning technology has potential for doing much good, research in human cloning should continue, although some applications of it ma...

    Introduction The possibility of human cloning, raised when Scottish scientists at Roslin Institute created the much-celebrated sheep 'Dolly' (Nature 385,810-13, 1997), 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 materia...
  • Clone Of Cells
    448 words
    Cloning is a big issue now. Many arguments are going on about cloning humans being immoral. But what is cloning? Cloning is one or more offspring from a single ancestor; the genetic composition from the ancestor is identical to the offspring. No sex is involved in the production of clones, and since sex is the normal means by which new genetic material is introduced during procreation, clones have no choice having the same genes as their only parent. A clone of cells refers to the descendants of...
  • Cloning Of Animals
    827 words
    The cloning of animals will be beneficial to human beings inthe near future. Experiments in cloning animals started in the early nine-teen-fifties. Over the next forty years, scientists were only able to clone animals from very young embryonic cells. When these scientists tried to use older cells for cloning, they did not get normal results. This led many scientists to believe that animals could not be cloned from adult cells. (Pennisi, 1997) However, this all changed in the Summer of 1995 with ...
  • Clones Of Cells Inside An Organism
    1,003 words
    Cloning What is a Clone A clone is a group of genetically identical cells. For example, tumors are clones of cells inside an organism because they consist of many replicas of one mutated cell. Another type of clone occurs inside a cell. Such a clone is made up of groups of identical structures that contain genetic material, such as mitochondria and chloroplasts. Some of these structures, called plasmids, are found in some bacteria and yeasts. Techniques of genetic engineering enable scientists t...

    ANIMAL CLONING AT A GLANCE GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF GENETIC TECHNOLOGY Genetic Engineering is the process of directly altering an organism's DNA. Scientists have been directly working with DNA since the 1950's. Or so I m led to believe. However the most important discoveries in the field of genetic engineering have been made in the past 24 years. Genetic engineering is now used to alter the DNA of plants, animals and bacteria. Some ways biologists are able to manipulate DNA are: through using rest...
  • Human Clone
    2,024 words
    According to Webster's New World Dictionary (1990), a clone is "all descendants derived asexually from a single organism". In layman terms a clone is an exact duplicate of another organism, therefore a human clone would be a perfect copy of another human being. According to the American Medical Association, the scientific name for cloning is "somatic cell nuclear transfer", which means the nucleus of an existing organism is transferred into an oocyte from which the nucleus has been removed (AMA ...
  • Clone Humans
    434 words
    As most of us know by now, Keith Campbell, a Scottish scientist, cloned a sheep over a year ago. You may think that cloning is a good thing because it is new, but you must consider the implications of it. Cloning can cause war or even destroy civilization. Cloning must be stopped. Before 1952, cloning was unheard of, but in that same year, researchers Thomas King and Robert Briggs cloned frogs from tadpole cells. Many other cloning procedures were performed after them. When Keith Campbell cloned...
