“Human cloning is coming,” as Mike Pence once said. Cloning is a technological advancement that is making its way toward our era. It has already been established in 1997 through Dolly the sheep, the first cloned living organism by taking a cell and infusing it with electricity to create an exact replica. After this significant scientific breakthrough, the big question asked now is how much farther can we take cloning to another matter like even human cloning? Human cloning is one majorily entire thing versus organ cloning, which has benefitted many people worldwide. There has also been known traces of reproductive cloning, animal cloning and even cloning for scientific use. Nevertheless, there are people who believe cloning goes against God 's word and should not be used in mankind today, not for scientific purposes or even health …show more content…
To do this scientists use a process called somatic cell nuclear transfer which is moving the cell nucleus of the organism and DNA from one cell to another. (“Human Cloning”). Reproductive cloning is mostly used for parents who have specifically lost a child, so they can replicate a clone, and for relationships that are same sex related, so then they would not need a donor sperm or egg, just a surrogate to carry the child until birth. Additionally, reproductive cloning allows species which are extinct or almost at the level of extinction to save their species and or bring back their species with old DNA, (Nolan 1). Reproductive cloning is not only for humans, but animals as well. Nevertheless, this type of cloning gives people who have the inability of reproducing a chance to reproduce and it can be a solution to infertility for many. Eventually, reproductive and therapeutic cloning have its similarities in which an exact replica is created, but between they have differentiable end
