Note: I got this idea from a website, therefore, this idea and basis for the question are not mine.
How much do you know about human cloning? Obviously, there are two sides to the issue: the pro and the con. As for the good use of cloning technology, human organs can be cloned to make new organs for terminally ill patients. I have also found out that it helps woman who cannot bear children in some cases.
On the other hand, there are negative aspects to human cloning. Some think that by making humans with technology, we will be "deprived of our human right". Since sexual reproduction will no longer be needed to produce more humans, this takes away from the value of humans. While intellectuality has increased, human worth has decreased.
I think that human cloning is alright, but only to a certain extent. Considering the fact that I am interested in going into the medical field, I can see great possibilities in cloning human "organs". Think about a little girl who is five-years-old. She is dying because she needs a new heart. She is on an organ donor list, but her time is running out. If scientists and doctors could clone a new heart, then this little five-year-old could be spared of her life, free to live the life she deserves. I think that as long as cloning is kept within reasonable bounds, it is perfectly acceptable. I do not think that entire people should be cloned. A heart has only one way to function... pump, pump, pump. It can't go wrong any more than real hearts can. However, I think cloning an entire human is just plain dangerous because there are so many functions to a human. If this "clone" goes haywire, how could anyone stop it? And to terminate the life of this clone would only bring about more ethical questions as to the morality of destroying a "cloned life."
Considering both sides of the human cloning controversy, do you think that humans should be cloned, and to what extent?
