Cloning is the creation of an organism that is an exact genetic copy of another. This means that every single bit of DNA is the same between the two!

You might not believe it, but there are human clones among us right now. They weren't made in a lab, though: they're identical twins, created naturally. Below, we'll see how natural identical twins relate to modern cloning technologies.

Did you know that one stray strand of hair from your comb could produce enough cells to clone an animal or a person? Do you think that cloning is ethical?

We are against cloning and we shall support our point of view with strong evidence as to why cloning is wrong.

Have you ever wished that you had a clone of yourself? We did our study before our research. Cloning makes an exact duplicate of life forms by using DNA genetics.

For the purpose of this presentation; we will be discussing 2 types of cloning. “Reproductive Cloning” is technology used to generate an animal that has the same DNA as another currently or previously existing animal.”

“Theraputic cloning” is also called “embryo cloning.” Embryo cloning is the production of human embryos for use in research. The goal is not to create cloned human beings but rather to harvest stem cells that could be used to study human development and to treat disease.

The risks of cloning are that cloning is expensive, something may be wrong with the clone, and “many cloned animals have not lived long enough to generate good data about how clones age”. More than 90% of cloning attempts have failed to produce viable offspring.”

We are against cloning because we feel it is just not right. Creating life with no history is morally wrong and very sad. It is like playing God and we have no right to do that.

Doctors feel that cloning humans would be unethical due to the lack of understanding of reproductive cloning. There are only about 1 or 2 viable offspring for every 100 experiments. Most attempts to clone mammals fail and about 30% of those born alive are with “large offspring syndrome” and other debilitating conditions. Several cloned animals have died from infections or other complications. The same problems would be expected with human clones. In addition, scientists do not know how cloning would impact mental development. With so many unknown components concerning reproductive cloning, the attempt to clone humans at this time is considered potentially dangerous and ethically irresponsible.
Some people think cloning is good because you can use the clone’s stem cells, which can save a dying person, ultimately. However, it is still illegal here in the United States. Even though we know it could save a person we STILL feel it is wrong because in order to save another person, we are still taking from another life. We feel that is not right, and it’s against God. Our opinion is that he doesn’t want us to do this, and he should decide.

In conclusion, if we decide to make cloning legal, we would be conflicting with mother-nature herself and it’s wrong. We hope that people pay attention to our opinion and that no one makes it legal!

In conclusion, we know that there are strong opinions for and against cloning. This is why we must guarantee that nothing interferes with nature and human development. We must educate ourselves against cloning.
