To clone or not to clone, that is the question. There are many people in the world pondering this very thought but, lets get one thing straight. If a person is cloned that is, lets say 40 years old then the clone will not be 40 years old, it will however be a new born baby. This idea is overwhelming because if you wanted to clone a loved one that you lost it would be like your child. This child would have no memories of you and won"t even know who you are. So Why even try to clone someone or something?.
There are ways that cloning could "better" the human race. One of these ways is in the agricultural industry. If farmers could clone there best wool producing sheep, farmers could make better profits. The technique that is used to clone the animals is called nuclear transfer and as it improves it could dramatically benefit the agricultural industry. Another ways it can benefit animals is we now have the ability to save endangered species. Through cloning we can now clone endangered species so that they are no longer endangered. Cloning can also help humans themselves. Through cloning scientist can see possibilities of the ability to clone pigs that can produce organs such as hearts that will not be rejected by a humans immune system. Livestock can also use cloning to help produce biological proteins that help people who have diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson's and Cystic Fibrosis. Cloning could also help researchers cure any number of diseases. Cloning could also provide a child for couples who are infertile or genetic disorders. It is also possible for single women to have a child through in-vitro fertilization or artificial insemination. Through nuclear transfer children who need an organ transplant could have a clone born to donate organs. If a clone were used as an organ donor it would negate the chance of the recipients immune system rejecting the organ, because it is a genetic match.
