Human Cloning
Human Cloning comes with two dangerous processes, reproductive cloning (the creating of a new organism) and the therapeutic cloning (the creation of a new tissues or “other biological products”) which affects the ethics of human society. Scientists perceive cloning benefits all men and women, while religious leaders stress the idea of cloning to be an unethical process. Although human cloning serves as an aid to the children and parents with conflicts, cloning is completely unacceptable to convey human life as a product.
Humans reproductively and therapeutically give the idea of people becoming a product rather than a living being. Siedler emphasizes that…show more content…

People are born to live individually, free to express their uniqueness, but cloning shatters the varieties of all human kind and cause the people to serve with purpose; purpose to be the same (Siedler 91-92). The differences of every person with their talents or outer appearance “will be changed, giving them absolutely no individuality or specialness,” (Goodnough 45-47).
Scientists guarantee the “good” causes cloning may give to the world, but cloning advocates the unacceptable idea to the people of this generation. God produced his own place in His own eyes and the way He wanted His children to become, but cloning destroys everything; destroys the creation of His own beloved and creates “the danger of playing God,” (Goodnough 47). Cloning illustrates a sign of human going against God and changes the life God provided, which Goodnough stresses that “humans were given the privilege of finding themselves through what God have given them, but all will [be erased] with cloning that could go against the gift of God” (47). With such a simple human cloning process, it can “raise deep concerns [about people’s]…most cherished concepts of faith,” (Goodnough 109). A human carry a great amount of power within but is it to the point that humans could call themselves their own creator? Lisa Yount declares “there is a strong and real understanding that [humans] are not [their]

Would clones understand themselves as creations or copies? Would cloning undermine the conception of a human being’s individuality? (Medicines’ Brave New World) Those are two of the most questioned aspects of human cloning. Everyone always wants to be their own person and have their own thought, basically, be as original as they can be. How original can you get when there’s someone out there thinking, doing, and looking exactly like you? Not very original, if you ask me. Human cloning, cloning of any kind, has been looked at as being creepy, scary, immoral, and in the most dismal way, exciting. Cloning of humans should be prohibited because it is offensive to the human life and religion.

In July 2000, Dr. Ian Wilmut, a geneticist of…show more content…

In the past, animal cloning experiments has dealt scientists with grotesque and disastrous outcomes. The cloned animals had either been born with serious defects and/or deformities. The main task that needs to be taken care of before the thought human cloning even steps into the picture is that of dealing with this major setback. It took 277 attempts to produce Dolly, and apparently Dolly is normal. It's easy to just brush off the fact that a baby lamb was born with malformations or genetic defects. It's easy to just dump the failed experiment and not worry about the consequences. How are we to do this if it were done to the human population? What would happen to the 277 other failed experiments produced before that one success? More than 277 embryos, the start of 277 human beings, would die for the sake of just one embryo that would have the same DNA as some one else.

Human cloning would be means of degrading the character of the human race. It tests the boundaries of a humans way of being valuable and unique. Cloning a human would take away a person's identity. All humans are guaranteed their own personality without barriers. The right to be yourself will be breached by the fact that everything you thought was yours will be given to back someone else's genetic identity. It's important to know that personality is not bounded in someone's genes, but that the
