There are many different implications, however, there are few as controversial as therapeutic human cloning. Think of the human body as a machine for a moment. We are comprised of finely tuned mechanisms that work in harmony to allow us to live. Each of these cogs, however, are fragile and can be defective or wear-out. One solution to this problem is to supply spare parts, if you will. Well, where do these parts come from? We currently use donors that can spare the necessary organs. This is a tricky process, however, because the number of those that require replacement “parts” is greater than those that are compatible donors. It is because of this dilemma that people end up perishing while waiting for a suitable organ. Some bioengineers, on the other hand, have a rather interesting solution to this problem. If the demand is greater than the supply, then why not create more of a supply? Imagine having a virtually infinite supply of replacement organs that are completely compatible with your body. This would greatly reduce the number of global fatalities. Through the process of this paper, I will discuss the positive and negative repercussions of implantation of therapeutic human cloning. Since as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to enter the medical field. I’ve always been driven by the concept of diagnosing and treating others to create a better future. When I younger, I can distinctly remember reading about Dolly the sheep in a science textbook. It was at that…
