How It All Started In February 1997, when embryologist Ian Wilmut and his colleagues at Roslin Institute in Scotland were able to clone a lamb, named Dolly, the world was introduced to a new possibility and will never be the same again (Nash). These are only a few of the questions that have surfaced and need answered.
Before this, cloning was thought to be impossible, but now there is living proof that the technology and knowledge to clone animals exist. A whole new concept in ethics was created when the birth of Dolly was announced.
For the sake of this paper, both definitions will be used in order to cover all opinions.
One must understand that cloning does not produce an exact copy of the person being cloned.
You then stimulate the reconstructed egg electrically or chemically and try to make it start to divide and become an embryo.
You then use the same process to implant the egg into a surrogate mother that you would use with artificial insemination.
Part of thinking about the future includes incorporating the law of unintended consequences.
When we consider cloning, we must not blindly overlook its negative implications. Frankenstein, who became a victim of his own desire for knowledge.
Efforts are made across the globe to create the first cloned human being without first considering the consequences. However, in practice, it presents more problems than it can solve.
This paper will focus on the ethical and moral dilemmas surrounding the science of cloning and why it We should first understand our own limits and balance them with logical thinking. Part of being a human being in a functioning society involves responsibility.
