Have you ever imagined the world with an identical copy of you? If you have you know it can be a terrifying thought. Duplicating ones – self would be walking in a world of no individuality. The world would lack diversity if nobody ever had the chance to be unique. Scientists are fascinated with the idea of cloning. You may ask, what is cloning? Cloning is the production of an organism with genetic material identical to that of another organism (Seidel 1).One’s physical character and behavioral demeanor would be inherited from the organism used to create another living person. To simplify this definition it means that it would be a somewhat identical copy of you.
In the process of cloning it is impossible to raise a clone in the exact same condition as the donor; they usually appear and act slightly different due to the fact that the genetic makeup and environment play very important roles in the development of the clone (Seidel 1). This simply means that the clones may not look or act like the donor. Identical twins are often studied by researchers as a process to discover the reasoning behind the differences in the

It is very expensive as a result of all the products and technology needed to carry out the difficult procedure. The cost and hazards of cloning won’t just affect the clones, but the rest of society too (PCBE 13). Technology plays a large role in the advancements of cloning but due to the expense of technology it has put a burden upon the development of cloning.
If cloning was to become a role in our economy it would lead to a significant expansion in our population. Having our existing population expanded by un–naturally produced “humans” would cause the clones to be in competition with other naturally produced human beings for a role in our society. Cloning could cause the world to over populate and would affect the economy by not having enough resources to accommodate the livelihood of the human
