Should human clning be legal?

Extracts from this document...


A lot of people worry when they hear the words "Human Cloning". Many crazy thoughts run through their heads, people think that it is bad. They think of the world being run by many clones and not people. They think of people thinking exactly like one another. And for some reason because of cloning, the world will come to an end. Cloning to some people is even meant "evil." Most religious people believe that it is "Playing God", they think that humans are not meant to have this right. Cloning is not a magical way of creating life. It is a scientific method that can save many lives, treat diseases and let couples with no children have natural children of their own. Many mammals have already been cloned, like Dolly the sheep and it worked and dolly is living its normal life. ...read more.


This way we can save millions and millions of lives of people. Why can the government say that we have "A good reason to ban cloning" when it could save millions of people. What if it was them lying on their bed sick, they would be screaming, "Clone my kidneys." Then they can know that cloning should be right for people in need. Another advantage is that using cloning many couples who can't have babies will be able to have their very own children. To do this you do not need sperm or egg, any cell can work. One of the reasons people suicide and divorce is because of them not being to have children. There are other things for people, but they are painful, expensive and have a very low chance of working. Just think about it, cloning is one of the best scientific discoveries. ...read more.


That is why the government should fund human cloning research. Human cloning is not perfect at the moment, but without government support more people will continue to die. People can't have natural children and parents will still be passing diseases to their children. Human cloning should be used, not banned. The government can make human cloning possible. Scientists might also set up secret labs and human cloning places. Some people think that is happening now. The government should allow human cloning. Banning it can't make helpful clone organs for people who need it. Cloning can make us know more about cells. This would allow scientists to make organs for transplant. Cloning can help carriers of faulty genes to have healthy children. It might even completely remove genetic diseases like cystic fibrosis. Cloning can help people who can't have children to have their own children. If people knew more about cloning and its advantages people's minds can change on human cloning. We should give human cloning a chance to see if it works. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
