Now imagine a world in which there is a devastating famine, vain leaders make thousands of copies of themselves while sacrificing thousands more embryos, and individuality is lost in a sea of identical people. The same technology can produce these two conflicting scenerios. This technology which has this amazing potential is cloning. Cloning is producing an organism from another organism by an asexual process. Cloning has the potential to revolutionize medicine, agriculture, and reproduction if science can overcome the obstacles it creates. The first of the many uses of cloning is in agriculture. Improving agriculture was the original motive for cloning research. For thousands of years humans have been manipulating the natural reproductive processes of animals and plants to make them more useful. Dolly, who shocked the world by being the first mammal to be cloned, was cloned in an attempt at bettering livestock, not as practice for human cloning. ...read more.

Some of these benefits stem from cloning animals, while others are from cloning humans. Many people view cloning of any type, especially human cloning, as wrong because it is unnatural, dehumanizing or cruel. They argue that all cloning research should be stopped immediately because of the high failure rate, which is usually 98% (�Reasons� B06). To solve this problem cloning advocates propose that the only way to improve is through more research. Cloning proponents view cloning as the most promising scientific advancement in decades. The most practical medical use of cloning, and possibly the most controversial, is curing infertility. There are millions of people who can not have biological children due to sterility. There are many medical reasons for sterility, but there are also people who can not have children because of their circumstances. Gay, lesbian and single people can not have children for the obvious problem of needing a male to donate sperm and the female to carry the child. Many of these people solve their problems by adopting or using a donor�s egg or sperm cells. This works, but is not satisfactory for people who want a child biologically related to them. ...read more.
