loning may sound like science fiction, but it is very real. There were many advances in cloning in the twentieth century. The climax was when scientists successfully cloned a sheep in 1996.(11) Advances stopped when scientists asked themselves whether or not it is ethical to attempt to clone a human. The same question is asked
of lawmakers today. The debate is a very complicated and is one that could change the course of our society. The United States should legalize human cloning so scientists across the nation can continue to advance our society. (define and state exactly in what ways it would advance our society that you will support in the rest of your paper)

The techniques for this include cellular reprogramming and using artificial chromosomes.(5) Again, the science of these techniques are theoretical and need more research. (same as above – explain more clearly and fully. Offer more information. Give examples if there are any. Use a quote from an authoritative source.)
The third argument is for the human race to have a better understanding of our genetics. There is an age-old debate of what makes a person the way they are. Is it based on genetics or on the individuals personal experiences? This debate is often characterized as nature versus nurture. If you were to make two clones, and put them in different environments, then you could study the effects the environment has on a person. You could also study what environmental elements influence a person positively. This information could help better society. (explain this more fully, citing authoritative sources that discuss the issue in a credible way.)
The fourth argument is for human engineering. Through research with human DNA we could someday be able to edit the sequences. Imagine that we could just delete any defective genes that could cause diseases of genetic mishaps.(6) We could also go a step further and edit DNA to our liking. We could make a person taller or more muscular. We could put in DNA that prolongs life, or take away balding. The possibilities are endless. (Explain more fully – give examples of the possibilities that are more fully outlined and explained. Use quotes to support.)
Cloning has the potential to be very valuable. But many argue if its the right thing to do. Many question arise. The first question is if clones would have the same rights as the original. A clone would be a copy of the original person; they would look almost completely the same, and act similar. Would a clone have equal rights even if it’s just a copy? Also the clone might be asked to live in the original’s shadow. (You introduce the ethical debate but you don’t offer anything definitive – if the ethical issues of cloning are an argument used by those against legal cloning, then present their best case of why – state clearly that stakeholders who support keeping cloning illegal make the point that…..)
The second argument against human cloning is based of the second argument that is with human cloning. (Write this 1st sentence more clearly) How...
