The possibility of human cloning could be closer that people think. A couple already cloned their dog after it died, and scientists already created a cloned human embryo using the same method that created Dolly the sheep in 1996. Most people consider human cloning to be wrong for several, very good reasons, and many other people consider it to have the potential to become a very good thing because of the benefits that could come from human cloning. The world has tons and tons of people, and the earth seems to barely have enough resources for the people already populating the planet. Human cloning could bring up an issue of people having more identity crises. Another major issue that would arise is that people would not accept the human clones …show more content…
Even if scientists and doctors did not choose to study and fix medical conditions from cloning, they could choose to advance different kinds of surgical procedures like plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery, and transplants. With cloning, scientists and doctors could create exact, genetic matches for bone marrow, cartilage, bone, organs, and various types of connective tissue. While all of these medical advances sound wonderful and could potentially be life changing to hundreds of thousands of people, the question of whether or not human cloning is morally correct should be asked beforehand. The world has tons and tons of people, and the earth seems to barely have enough resources for the people already populating the planet. If scientists created more people through cloning, it would hurt the economy because of how expensive cloning would be, and the earth would not have enough resources to take care of the humans who were already on earth plus the cloned humans. The world is already considered by many to be overpopulated, not to mention that the world would be less unique and people’s identities would be threatened as a …show more content…
It could have the potential to bring many medical advances and help many people, but that is not a guarantee. It would have a large potential to do more harm than good. There could be a few good things that could come from human cloning, but there would definitely be more bad things that would come from human cloning. The bad things would definitely include hundreds of thousands of people having identity crises, clones not being accepted as real people and being treated wrongly as a result, and the world running out of resources would become a large issue. Debating human cloning is an interesting topic, and it should be taken seriously. Human cloning is possible, and it could be closer than anyone
