The practice of cloning can be beneficial to humans and other living things. Cloning has been a very controversial topic since it affects moral values of human beings and other living things alike. In February 1997, scientists in Scotland announced the birth of the first cloned sheep named Dolly; this heralded the future of cloning possibilities. Scientists began extensive experiments on cloning, and have cloned both plants and animals successfully. The next step was to clone actual human beings. Before experiments could have been carried out, pressure started build on the scientists because people started to doubt if cloning was ethical and morally correct. Governments began to introduce bans and constraints on cloning, because they felt it was not correct. .
If cloning were allowed to be experimented, scientists would come up of a way to clone body organs which are an exact replica of an individual body organ. This would prove to be very beneficial to a person who may have lost a body organ such as a kidney. Scientists could clone that particular organ for the individual, which, in the long run, would work better than a transplant organ. Cloning will certainly expand the scope of medicine greatly, therefore the possibilities of conquering diseases such as the Parkinson's disease and cancer and other diseases that were earlier considered incurable.
Cloning could certainly benefit couples who are infertile and want to have a child of their own, thus they could use cloning to produce a baby with their similar characteristics. In fact, they may be able to even choose the characteristics of their child. Equally important women who are single could have child, using cloning instead of artificial insemination. Cloning could also provide a copy of a child for a couple whose child had died. .
Some people would suggest that cloning is unnatural and not ethically correct, so would be talking medicine when you fall sick, but how would one really define something that is or isn't "ethically" correct.
