Cloning:  Playing GOD or practicing medicine?

                                         Week 3 Assignment 1.1:

Topic Selection and Thesis Statement


 Cloning has been a pinnacle debate in the science community since its discovery, asking the question are we tampering with the natural order of creation.Stem cell research is regarded as the next path to eradicating deadly diseases and disorders. It seems very dangerous to clone humans, which based on history in regards to racism, social-economic barriers, and slavery; surely will create an opportunity to view the new species as second class humans. But limited genetic research on gene sequencing and genetic coding on an adaptive level will help unlock answers to our own species. But we can’t be sure what opportunity for genetic mutation until there are enough generations of case study.

Cloning is a leading scientific area of study, but Einstein theory to defy the law of nature to split an atom has cause a range of uses including carbonated beverages to an atomic nuclear .bomb. So clearly history shows what is created for the advancement of man, can lead him also to ruin when vision is clouded by greed. Therefore, I feel we must continue to ban human cloning, and only use cloning strictly for stem cell research and medical use or to harvest vital organ for human transplants.
