Opponents of cloning believe that the procedure of cloning has not been proven safe at all, while those who support cloning believe the cloning of humans could be used to solve human diseases and infertility. However, both sides may agree that human cloning may help in our new era. Human cloning has been successful and has had failure at times as well.
The proponents of human cloning could be broken down into two arguments. The first argument being the way cloning can help by using certain technology to make sure the infertility rate goes down by helping to produce a genetic offspring. The last argument being that cloning could be an important process to help battle with genetic diseases. Although some of these arguments may fail, if they were to succeed in any way though, there would be a great deal of reasoning to move forward with the argument (Melo 253).
The opponents of human cloning could also be broken down into two arguments as well. The first argument being there could be psychological harms done to the clone. The last and final argument is there could be much harm to society. Many argue that one could lose individuality and uniqueness to a person if one were to clone them. Cloning could harm society by one might lose the establishment of a family or even have no respect for the human body (Melo 248).
The first argument that was given was solving infertility. One who supports cloning would take side by arguing that this could benefit infertile couples. One who suffers from genetic diseases, could have a child genetically related to them. Cloning becomes more as an obvious solution as the rate of infertility begins to rise. In maintaining that human cloning should be accepted because it could solve many problems of infertile people, many assumptions are conceded. One proponent of the argument is that if something can solve infertility, the new should accept it. The second proponent of the argument is that if one assumes one is infertile, then they should seek technological help (Melo 254). Many of our resources that one has may limit one from actually supporting the development to clone someone just whenever one wants. Many believe that the infertility problem could be prevented in some ways even though technological help may be the first option. Melo claims, “Sexual contraceptive, and medical practices, occupational health hazards, environmental pollution, and food additives constitute some examples of preventable causes of infertility” (Melo 255). When fighting genetic diseases couples with bad genetics could choose the option to clone their child instead of transmitting the bad disease into the offspring. In a way, cloning seems to be the way out for most of our deadly diseases. Cloning kids to create a...
