I did a school project on this and i would just like your opinion: Did you know that thousands of people each year die because the need an organ transplant, but can’t get organs needed? Did you also know that by earth could lose 20% of all the species by 2025, and that animal species will continue to die out because humans are overcrowding the earth and taking the animal territories? If reproductive cloning is allowed, the world would become overcrowded in the future; however, under specific circumstances, reproductive cloning should be allowed if they can copy some one’s mind. In addition, many religious leaders said cloning is against the will of God, but I ask you who decides the will of God. What if God wants us to clone people now and save billons of people in the future? Organ cloning (aka. therapeutic cloning) and cloning of endangered animals should be allowed by law, but reproductive cloning of humans should not be allowed.Reproductive cloning of humans should not be legalized for many reasons. First, reproductive cloning of humans will produce more humans. Humans use land to supply them with food, water, shelter and other resources, like fuel. Globally, people are running out space. It is estimated that by 2025 there will be only one hectare (10,000 sq meters) of land per person to get resources from. Humans are everywhere on the world. In 73 of the world’s countries, human activities have made a major impact on nature. Rain foreset have been replaced by roads, shopping malls, and factories. The environment will be filled with sewage, acids, and chemicals. Study shows that the human race is using up earth’s resources 20% faster than it can replenish. At the current growth rate in US the population would double in 75 years. Not to mention legal immigrates and illegal immigrants. You also have to count the human clones if reproductive cloning of humans was legalized. However reproductive cloning of humans should be legalized if they can clone the mind. Human cloning will not benefit the future. Reproductive cloning of endangered animals should be allowed for many reasons. If scientists were to clone embryos of endangered animals and freeze those embryos, scientists could succeed in cloning endangered animals. All around the world scientists have cloned endangered animals by using surrogate mothers of the same animal family as that of the endangered animals. Imagine if our national symbol, the eagle, would become extinct because America didn’t legalize cloning for endangered animals. That would outrage many Americans. Moreover, the whole ecosystem would fail because some animals and plants depend on those animals that are most endangered. Since scientists have successfully cloned endangered animals already in several countries, we can restore the animals that have been damaged by the polluted wild-life habitat. Reproductive cloning of endangered animals should be allowed because it will benefit us and the environment. In addition to reproductive cloning of endangered species, therapeutic (that is, organ cloning) should also be legalized. First, thousands of people die because of failed transplant operations. (get staticstics) But -% of those needing a transplant organ might never even get to the operating table. If therapeutic were available there were no need for there scarce transplant oragans or risky transplant operations. Many who have died for these reasons would still be alive, like Mickey Mantle. Second, therapeutic cloning can be used in research to reverse the effects of “incurable diseases” like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s. Third, 88% of the public clearly disapproves of cloning humans, but 54% support cloning human embryos to create stem cells for medical treatment (that is, therapeutic cloning). Finally, all religions, except fro the Catholics did now take a firm ground against therapeutic cloning. It is clear than that the scientific community and the general public support therapeutic cloning.
