In the early of the 21st century, civilization witnessed significant scientific breakthroughs, especially the successful recreation of creatures. This raises the question regarding the likelihood and legitimacy of this application of(by) humans. From my own perspective, the scheme may provoke public outcries despite inevitable benefits
On the one hand, there is a large body of arguments for the adaptation of this practice. Of utmost importance is the treatment of several serious diseases, reducing the number of fatalities. To be more specific, given the storage of healthy organs for individuals, their damaged or lost ones would be replaced and needed tissues could be generated for the patients. For instance, scientists have demonstrated the possibility of cloning healthy heart cells, which can be injected into areas of injured hearts. Another contributor is the long-term solution to infertility. Since current infertility treatments are marginally successful and involved in multitudinous physically and emotionally painful procedures for a small chance of success, human cloning could make it possible for infertile couples to have children.
On the other hand, opponents maintain that the drawbacks brought about are more prominent in comparison with the aforementioned benefits. The most persuasive argument is that the risks are far too great at present. It is feared that human cloning would be cruel, because the process may result in a large number of miscarriages and deformities before a human could be successfully cloned. For instance, it took 272 attempts to create Dolly, the first cloned sheep. Even then, the child could not be guaranteed ongoing good health. Furthermore, with respect to ethical implications, strong objections are that reproductive cloning could be prone to abuse leading to the generation of humans whose organs and tissues would be harvested, while there are also concerns about how cloned individuals could integrate with families and with society at large.
In conclusion, taking both sides into prudent consideration, although human cloning does entail some medical advantages, the method is too unscrupulous and thereby should be prohibited for the sake of natural cycles.
