    HUMAN CLONING IS A MISTAKE? In an article, ! SS Journal says human cloning research ban would be misguided!" , Senior Medical Correspondent Dan Rutz and Reuters point out that if the government passed the bill on banning human cloning research, it would be a mistake. They argued that since experiments on animals have improved human's lives tremendously, including some new medical findings; by researching on our own genes, we would know even more about humans! | bodies, and might even be able to ...
  • First Cloned Calf

To give you a little history of cloning, it began a long...
  • Scientists To Clone Humans
    1,365 words
    Governmental Banning on human and organ cloning is posing a problem on those educated ones in academia. Researcher and scientist Dr. Ian Wilmot has successfully cloned a sheep, and has gathered from this experiment evidence that strongly proves that human and organ cloning could be performed safely and effectively. Unfortunately, our government has almost immediately banned such cloning in this country. Did they realize the benefits of such a discovery Perhaps they simply believe that it is some...
  • Stem Cells From Cloned Embryos
    923 words
    Human cloning is the laboratory production of individuals who are genetically identical to another human being. Cloning is achieved by putting the genetic material from a donor into a woman's egg, which has had its nucleus removed. As a result, the new or cloned embryo is an identical copy of only the donor. Human cloning has moved from science fiction into science. One biotech company has already began producing embryonic human clones for research purposes. Chinese scientists have derived stem ...
  • Clone Into The Old 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...
  • Research On Cloned Embryos
    269 words
    State laws may restrict some or all sources for embryonic stem cells or specifically permit certain activities. State laws on the issue vary widely. Approaches to stem cell research policy range from laws in California and New Jersey, which encourage embryonic stem cell research, including on cloned embryos, to South Dakota's law, which strictly forbids research on embryos regardless of the source. If, however, a fetus is aborted for the health of the mother in South Dakota, the fetus may be use...
  • Techniques To Clone Humans
    871 words
    To Clone or Not To Clone... Since February 23rd, 1997, when British scientists announced they had successfully cloned an adult sheep named Dolly, the world has been scrambling to limit the possibility of using cloning techniques to clone humans. To most people, the idea of cloning humans, and its moral implications, has been safely confined to the realm of science fiction; as something we didn't have to think about until later. Yet, as the world has slumbered, researchers have arrived at a compe...
  • Clone Humans

    Alvin A. Soriano February 14, 2000 A pleasant morning Ladies and Gentlemen. I would like to share my views on why cloning should be legalized in the Philippines. We, the experts in the Institute of Technological Technologies feel that with the careful continuation of research, the technological benefits of cloning clearly outweigh the possible social consequences. We think that final products of cloning, like farm animals, and laboratory mice will not be the most important achievement. The appli...
  • First Cloned Sheep From Embryo Cells
    1,914 words
    The biological definition of a clone is an organism that has the same genetic information as another organism or organisms (Nash, 62-65). From this definition and from information about the science behind cloning, my current view on cloning is that it is ethical, but should not be used until perfected. This statement ignores information about how we can misuse cloning and what consequences occur when the procedure is unsuccessful. I doubt however that we will allow cloning to be misused, and thi...
