You could clone pigs, cows, and chickens, and end up with more bacon, sausage, hamburgers, and barbeque chicken. There is a variety of feelings, as it matters your situation. But what does this research mean practically? You're no longer unique, and you don't know where you fit into the world. What about taking that out of your bill? He claims 5,000 couples, including 'three or four' from Britain, have volunteered to take part in his work. Parents are taking home a child that is far from unique, but they will pick a clone that has certain qualities that they want in a child. We're going to extract what we need from them and then we're going to destroy them. This has now sparked a huge debate, not only among scientists, but among governments and the public as well.
However, many feel that this type of therapeutic cloning comes dangerously close to human reproductive cloning. However, some experts are skeptical that cloning can help a species recover. Their aim isn't to produce animals for consumption—cloning is far more labor-intensive and expensive than conventional breeding methods. For instance, what about the tiger and giant panda? There isn't enough resources in the world for the both of us, and everyone will suffer because of scientists' brilliant idea in thinking cloning is a good idea. Professor Wilmut says the ban already in operation in Europe and the U. It will take time and grief to adjust to the new person, which can be unhealthy for close members and friends. Andrews a question, because I think that this is also something important.
There's no point in cloning since scientists really don't have a handle on the right way to deal with genes. People will feel the shortage of oxygen. At least 42 other countries have completely baned cloning already. Human Genome Project Although the issue of human cloning has received the most attention within the last couple of years, cloning techniques have existed since the late 1970s. And animals will die as clones or working to make clones. Cloning endangered species is much easier, mainly because the surviving animals can donate healthy, living cells. An animal has roughly the same genetic makeup as a human and it should be theoretically the same.
. They can just get themselves cloned and have a baby of their own. Like if a scientist was on the verge of finding a cure for a deadly disease and then the scientist got a tumor and had like 3 months to live. Without this gene, the animals are highly susceptible to infections. This could result in the development of cloned animals or humans with serious defects. And in human,the clonned person dosent have the chance to reproduce again. Another risk factor is the egg and nucleus not forming cohesively to complete the cloning process.
And the chances of success are very low, about only. Cloning has been all over the papers and the news lately, mostly caused by the death of possibly the world's most famous animal behind Lassie, Ian Wilmut's cloned sheep, Dolly. If the clone realized they were created to replace somebody who has passed away, the clone would feel an insane amount of pressure knowing this. The idea should have never come to the surface, but it exists in our world. We don't want to die, but neither does the animals. Cloning could help reduce the time needed to make a transgenic animal model, and the result would be a population of genetically identical animals for study. The world is in danger if scientists ever perfect the process of cloning.
There are also uncertain results, a chance of overpopulation, an impact on economy, lack of genetic diversity, identity crisis, it contradicts many people's religious beliefs, and it build a world of fraud. It will take a big chunk out of the economy that it can't get back. Genetic abnormalities and diseases within the clone are known to happen through experimentation. In cats, a gene that helps determine coat color resides on this chromosome. But I think both of them have something in common.
The stress is enough to make you think that having yourself cloned was a bad idea. It's what makes our world great. When something is different, people tend to be less accepting of it. The other thing that's very important is, if you are going to allow embryos to be created in the lab in large quantities for so-called therapeutic cloning research, it's inevitable that somebody like Zavos gets ahold of some of those embryos and implants them in women. Do you really think cloning more people is the solution? Once a desired level of cell division has been achieved by the egg which is now referred to as the zygote , it is implanted in the surrogate mother using the technique of in vitro fertilization. Its humans against clones when it comes to competing for natural resources.
But cells from a high-quality carcass can be cloned, giving rise to an animal that is able, though conventional breeding methods, to pass its superior genes to its offspring. Problems that have already emerged include organ deformity, premature ageing, massive obesity and damaged immune systems. In fact, several wild species have been cloned already, including two relatives of cattle called the guar and the banteng, mouflon sheep, deer, bison, and coyotes. The cloning of plants and animals on the other hand has helped us understand the actual idea of cloning in a different way. Other experiments created cloned mice that grew obese.
Human cloning is a controversial venture and it is unlikely that it will ever be totally accepted in society. Is it really worth it? Would you like to see your loved ones suffer so much? In 1880, a man named Walter Sutton made one of the most important discoveries towards - he proved that chromosomes hold genetic information. I'd like to point out one other thing. The issue with cloning is mainly Roman Catholics who are worried about human cloning, because, it might not be moral. And if you look at what happened when Congressman Weldon introduced his bill, members of the House of Representatives said they were humbled: They were less prepared for that than any other issue. Do you feel you are going against the scientific community here? Dolly's case represents how unsuccessful cloning really is. You should read some of the many articles available on the net.
