What Is Cloning? Cloning is the process of which an individual is created. This

Why Is The Idea Of Cloning So Controversial? About4 out of every 5 Americans are against cloning. It is seen to be risky, expensive, inhuman, and

What Are The Positive Outlooks On Having clones can help get rid of, as well as make our bodies resistant or immune to small illnesses such as diabetes, asthma, the common cold, the common flu, and so on.

Doctors could also do procedures such as different types of surgery, and since the clone would be identical to us, our

Body’s immune system would not reject them.

Cloning plants and animals could be useful too. By cloning more plants and animals, we can help protect, save, and repopulate endangered species, as well as provide more food sources, which in return will work to end world hunger.

Lastly, having clones could help create or complete families. Couples, who are otherwise incapable of having children of their own, can create a clone rather than adopting somebody else’s child.


What Are The Negative Outlooks On Cloning? The picture to the right shows the first gold fish ever cloned, “Goldie�. It is said that Goldie produced gigantic orange clones which escaped into the sewers of New York. They are rumored to be 300 feet in length and prey upon the indigenous population of the alligators that has lived in the sewers http://voices.yahoo.com/top-ten-cloningexperiments-gone-wrong-6365038.html

for centuries.

Cloning is extremely expensive, and not very efficient. Statistics show that about 1 in 250 clones is predicted to survive. They can also become deformed, or mutated.

Cloning could lead to inbreeding as well. This is when we clone so much and get so used to it, that when we lose the technology to do so, and we are forced to reproduce naturally again, we won’t be able to.

Clones would most likely not be looked at as human beings. They would be seen as a thing, an it, a monster, and probably even spare parts Lastly, clones would be used as a tool, for doctors to heal patients, and for criminals to get away with their crimes.
