Should we clone humans? - Sample Essay
When I was young, I was used to read books and watch movies about fantasy on every weekend. That was the great source of happiness to me at that time. The reason that I was mad about fantasy novels and movies was that story in novel and movie cannot be happened in our life that is, there was no reality in the story. That can be happened only in the story in novel and movie. That was the major point that I was attracted by the stories in fantasy novel and movies. However, what I have believed it is impossible to happen is becoming reality such as cloning human. Especially, human cloning is getting closer to reality.
So I am going to talk about human cloning which has being argued whether it should be allowed or not. There will be both positive aspects and negative aspects if we clone the human. What would be positive aspects if we clone the human? 1. Human cloning will be a good way to have a baby for those people who can’t have a baby naturally. 2, People will be able to inherit a healthy organ without any disease by using human cloning even if their parents haven’t got a healthy organ (hereditary disease will not be inherited) It would be an attractive aspect for those who are suffering from hereditary disease physically, emotionally.
3. Human cloning will be able to revive a person who was particularly meaningful for their family. 4. We could clone a person who influenced on society. For example, we could clone Einstein who has tremendous impact on modern science. Apart from Einstein, we could clone many kind of person who is very famous. If I was a scientist who can clone the human, I would clone Jesus Christ for mankind and Schweitzer who will be private doctor in my house and Beethoven who will be my music teacher and David Beckham who will be my soccer trainer and so on. How exiting story it is! What would be negative aspects if we clone the human? 1.
Human cloning will impair the dignity of men. Let us suppose that you are produced in a factory by human cloning. Who will treat you as a human? Everybody treat you as a doll even if you have same emotion as human and speak same languages. It must be terrible aspect. 2. Public order will be in disorder and finally destroyed because of ethical problem. To help understanding, there are interesting results researched by Americans. According to a CNN/Time poll released, most Americans think it is morally unacceptable to clone either animals or humans, and they think that new cloning techniques will create more problems than they solve.
About two-thirds of those polled said the federal government should regulate the cloning of animals. Opinion was far less divided on the prospect of cloning humans. Of those polled, 69 percent said they are scared by the prospect of cloning humans, and 89 percent said it would be morally unacceptable. Three-quarters said that cloning human beings is against God’s will, and 29 percent said they are so troubled by the ability to replicate life, that they would participate in a demonstration against cloning humans. Only 7 percent said they would clone themselves if they had the opportunity.
(http://www. cnn. com/TECH/9703/01/clone. poll/index. html) As you know, human cloning has been treated as the magic. However, we are faced with reality. What we thought it is impossible to happen in our life have happened. But as I mentioned above, there will be both positive aspects and negative aspects if we clone the human. So it is very difficult to make a decision which one will be good for human. because both sides have reasonable reasons. In other words, both sides can’t show us decisive reasons. Therefore we need to discuss about it very cautiously before we try to clone.
That is our future and that is our problem related to our life directly.
