Can your imagine a world without disease or infertility, or people like Christopher Reeves the actor who played superman, who is quadplegic to get up in his wheel chair and walk again? Well this is not impossible, it becomes possible with human clonning. However, there many who are oppose the research of human clonning. One of the issues why they disagree with it is only the scientist self interest, maybe for money, or self recognition and for personal motive. However, human clonning is more then just for scientist self-interest or for personal gain, it more about scientist interest in helping humans to live a better and happier life. Thus, can human cloning technology lead to medical advances which human can benefit from? .
one of the scientist interest in helping humans to live a better and happier life is to help those who wished to have their own baby or for the treatment of infertility. Infertility is caused by genetic defects, injuries to reproductive organs, congential defects and exposure to toxic substances and radiation. Many assisted-reproduction technologies have been developed like surrogate mothers for women without a functional uterus, intracytoplasmic sperm injection for males who can't produce viable, and IVF for women with blocked or missing fallopian tubes. However, these treatments have proven to be higly inefficient and they can't help people whose reproductive organs have not been developed or have been removed, this is according to an essay in the Human clonning foundation. They further state that most people are infertile because they can't produce viable gametes. Cloning technology wouldn't require viable sperm or egg, any body cell would do. This technology would be able to bypass defective gametes and allow infertile people to have their own biological children. Again, its not about scientist self interest, but for infertile couples to have a child they call their own.
