CLONING  Cloning ….. process of genetically creating an identical copy of an organism

Reproductive Cloning Organism with same DNA as that of donor Therapeutic Cloning Developing embryo for stem cells DNA Cloning DNA is replicated using viruses Replacement Cloning Combination of reproductive and therapeutic cloning for body part replacement

The cloning debate has also been reinforced with ethical, religious, scientific, moral, medical issues

Carries a high risk of abnormality in the resulting child. Put both the cell donor and the birth mother at risk. High failure rate( Dolly: 1 out of 276 attempts ). Telomere length, result in short life span. Often have large organs during their birth. "Large Offspring Syndrome

Medical issues •Health risks from mutated genes •Lung problems •Heart defects •Neurological disorders •Unstable immune system Possible miscarriage or still birth

Legal issues Difficulties of enforcing laws:  Criminal identity Property problem of donor and clones Kinship of offspring

• Genetically identical with another person • Feeling of less uniqueness • The most accurate human identity diagnosis will fail (e.g. DNA profile, fingerprints) • Psychological: Growing up knowing yourself to be a genetic copy of someone

Cloning could lead to extinction  If every one has the same type of genes there is a risk of getting infected by the same type of pathogen. • lack of diversity amongst the human population. The natural process of evolution will be halted,  If clones were manufactured to be perfect, would all imperfect real-humans become the minority  lead to an overpopulated planet ..less resources.. More death.

Cloning ……. involves throwing away some fertilized embryos Doctors might use clones as sources for organs for organ transplants Clone will be treated as property which can be sold to anybody else. Human trade will rise when average people can make good money supplying babies. human being should be a product (like packets of soup from a factory), or a tool (produced in a workshop) selling humans is unethical, inhumane and immoral.

“sowing the seeds of our own destruction.”
