Is Cloning Safe and Moral? In this case study I am going to answer the question entitled "Is cloning safe and moral" which is also the title of my case study. I am firstly going to explain and write definitions for words, processes that you will need to know in order to understand this case study. I will then show you all the for and against arguments regarding cloning and if it's safe and moral finally I will go on to present my views and what I think about cloning and whether I think it is safe and moral. Definitions of words that you will need to know! Alleles - Different versions of the same gene.

are already showing results in people with heart failure while animal studies have shown successful repair in brain after stroke, heart muscle, spinal cord and other tissues," therefore he is not biased and not for or against cloning as he looks at both sides of the argument.

Richard Garder, of the royal society said "This [proposal] would deny many patients with illnesses like Parkinson's disease, chronic heart disease and juvenile diabetes, the potential of effective treatments" therefore showing that he is against banning human cloning meanwhile in article six there is a sentence that starts with "1997 Italian laws forbid "all forms do experimentation or intervention whose objective, even indirectly, is the cloning of all humans and animals" so Italian government made a stand against cloning. Further on article six goes to say about how religious people felt towards this it says "Roman Catholics unimpressed...Anglicans defending the decision" the decision it refers to is the British government and how they wish to introduce legislation that allowed research on human embryo cells, further on in this section entitled "Religious Divide" it talks about Coronial Thomas who won the chainman of the bioethics committee he says "Obtaining stem cells from a human embryo is wrong, because it involves killing a human." ...read more.

Conclusion

The slave trade, ethnic cleansing, the holocaust. How do we do it? By convincing ourselves fellow human beings are not human." Therefore shows briefly that she is against cloning but her decision may be biased. So in all of the above the above I have looked thought the articles and picked out the best quotes that demonstrate the for and against best and I have then explained them and stated whether or not I think that the person making the quote is biased or not. So in conclusion and the answer to my question in my views is that I think hat cloning is at the moment not as safe as science could make it, I think that in the future science will be able to make this process safer. As for if cloning is moral or not I think it's moral if you are tying to save a life if you are just seeing if it is possible there is no need and therefore can be restrained. So all of the above are the views and my views on cloning. Article one -Is taken from the Daily Express from the issue on Thursday 12th August 2004 Article two -Is from the BBC news website the full address is http://newssearch.bbc.co.uk/health Article three -This is from Google news search cloning Article four - This article is also from the BBC website but the full address is http://newssearch.bbc.co.uk/world Article five - This article is again taken from the BBC website the full address being http://news.bbc.co.uk/health Article six - I got this article from http://archives.cnn.com ...read more.
