What will that mean for normal, average humans that were not produced by cloning methods?Will that mean that normal humans will actually be considered lower level of society? And of course, the last, but nevertheless a very important argument, is the cost.If you cloned yourself, the resulting child would be neither your son or daughter nor your twin brother or sister, but a new category of human being: your clone.
Arguments offered for and against reproductive cloning are given below.
A summary comment follows at the end of the arguments. Reproductive cloning would foster an understanding of children, and of people in general, as objects that can be designed and manufactured to possess specific characteristics. Reproductive cloning would diminish the sense of uniqueness of an individual. At least 95% of mammalian cloning experiments have resulted in failures in the form of miscarriages, stillbirths, and life-threatening anomalies; some experts believe no clones are fully healthy.
No doubt the discussion about pros and cons of cloning is far from over, leaving people to decide which direction to take on this matter.
But as science continues to develop and technology continues to advance, it is possible, that one day cloning will not be a novelty anymore.
It creates a question whether or not cloning would be an option to all levels of society, or would the prices be so high that only a few will be able to afford it?
As of today, natural way of reproductions is definitely the cheapest one.
While some scientists argue that cloning will change the world into a better place, other scientists are having second thoughts whether or not it is worthwhile.
Cloning is considered possible with plants, animals and humans.
But while scientists are trying to find more reasons that would support cloning, let’s talk about the reasons why cloning may not be a solution for problems that humanity has in these three fields.
Cloning plants and animals may have some pros, for example, it may help create species, especially nutritional plants and food producing animals that will withstand more diseases.
