Well since it’s inception cloning has been looked down upon. The religious overtones, the ethical implications and all the pro’s and con’s have been blathered about for awhile. Now Advanced Cell Technology, Inc in Massachusetts has come out with the first cloning of a human embryo. It is apparently supposed to be used for Medicine. The scientists who published this claim it is ‘Cellular Life not Human Life’.
Personally, I think this is a good step for medicine and a good step for the fight against certain diseases. I do not agree with the sci-fi cloning of human beings. Keeping a clone of yourself on a slab incase ‘it’ is needed is not something I would ever advocate. Cloning a liver from good liver cells to save myself one day is a different story all together. Of course there is other uses for cloning that may or may not be beneficial.
Do you all think this will A) Pass the senate? B) Become criminalized? C)Extend human life in the future? D)Cloning will become the norm for our childrens, children.
