Cloning is done mostly so as to come up with cells and tissues that are self reconcilable and can be used for medical purposes to prevent diseases and even for transplant of organs. Cloning has raised a lot of issues in terms of ethics from the church and even in medical fields in regards to how safe it is and its potential to being abused. This article looks at the benefits and risks of cloning for spare part human organs and the prevention of predisposed diseases. Research shows that there is an increasing gap in the supply and demand of organs that can be transplanted. The use of human embryonic stem cell technology is an advantage as it could be used as a means to solve the shortage there is by rehabilitating damaged and diseased tissue in a number of different common condition found in the human body. The technology has its own immunological problems in delivering of cell lines to huge populations. Arguments have been made in favor of motivating the intentional creation of embryos where by immune compatible stem cell lines could be produced. The immunological limitation in the transplant of tissue needs the creation of a global stem cell bank. It may be a savior for the disadvantaged groups in society who are currently not able to access allocation systems or even afford organ procurement due to the shortage and high costs of acquiring them (Atala 21) . With the challenges that have been found in the attempts to increase the number of organs that can be transferred…
