Introduction This case study is about human clowning and should it banned or not. It will provide information about human clowning advantages and disadvantages will be included. As will a conclusion and bibliography. Also I will put in my own opinion as well as other peoples. Scientific Theory and Evidence Human cloning is when you create a genetically identical copy of a human cell, human tissue or an actual human being. The ethics of cloning is an extremely controversial issue. Genetically identical means that both the humans have the same genes as each other. Human clones can also mean identical twins their cloning happens during the natural process of reproduction. There are the two most discussed types of human cloning therapeutic cloning and reproductive cloning. Therapeutic cloning involves cloning cells from an adult for use in medicine. While reproductive cloning means making an actual identical copy of a human being. Reproductive cloning has not been performed and is illegal in many countries. ...read more.


74% yes 19% no As the data show a lot more people think that it is morally wrong to clone humans then animals but still over 50% of people think it's wrong. The data shows that people are more willing to eat cloned products like fruits and vegetable but are not so keen on eating cloned animals.

There were scientists from Japan had cloned a pig named Xena and used its organs for transplant in humans. * Provide treatments for variety diseases- Doctors may be able to replace tissues and organs that are damaged by disease or injuries to restore healthy functions. * Genetic modification / engineering- Cloning gives parents the opportunity to choose what characteristics their children can have. ...read more.


Nonetheless, it is a new human life and the determination to destroy it and limit its use to scientific research for therapeutic ends compound further the moral issues rather than protect mankind. As such, cloning embryonic human life under any circumstance crosses an ethical line, takes an irrevocable step, from which science can never turn back." Diagram of cloning: Conclusion Some would say that it is a bad thing because it looks like humans are trying to play god. Others think it's good because it could improve people's lives by providing the public with unlimited healthy organs. I think that human cloning should be allowed to some extent. For example in medicine for patients that need immediate organ transplant or skin graphing for patients with severe burns. Also cloning in other aspects like agriculture and animals that could be used for food. In my opinion is a good thing because that means that we will never run out of food supplies. This will solve world hunger and provide humans with disease free animals to eat as meat. ...read more.
