Transcript of Human Cloning

Background information about cloning.
cloning also called "DNA Cloning," is when DNA is transferred from 1 organism to a self-replicating genetic element such as bacterial plasmid. Then the inserted DNA spreads in a foreign host cell creating the clone. This is classified as
genetic engineering.
Human Cloning
What is human cloning?
What are the types of artificial cloning?
Pro vs. Con
Should human cloning be legalized?
Cloning is the creation of an organism that has an exact genetic copy of another. This means that every single bit of DNA is the same between the two!
It is the creation of a genetically identical copy of a human.
• Clones will age quicker, cells have already been used
in a real life individual.
• Losing diversity/unbalance
• Disease/extinction
• Against God’s nature/mother nature
• Clones will not live long anyway
• Human life would be seen as “replaceable”

Evaluation of Argument

• Reference found from both the human cloning foundation and the center for bioethics and human dignity site.
• Uses good details and explains point thoroughly.

• Reference found from academic research from the science department at the University of Delaware
• Had a good overview on why cloning is not a good idea
• Reference found from an education foundation
• Gave realistic details, explanation, and reasoning on why human cloning is not right for the world, humans, cannot be afforded, and is not natural.

• Human Cloning has many advantages for the health field.
• However, Cloning will cause less diversity and uniqueness around the world.

Gene Cloning
Reproductive cloning
Therapeutic Cloning
Dolly was the first cloned sheep.
(July 5, 1996 – February 14, 2003)
Examples of cloned animals:
Our opinion
What was the name of the sheep that was first cloned?
Before we begin, everybody look to the person sitting on your right. Notice their hair color, eye color, shape, and the rest of their physical appearance. Now do the same to the person on your left, behind, and in front of you. What if though, when you looked at those people it was almost like looking into a mirror. Same general features and overall appearance, only slightly different based on gender. How would that feel? Would you like to have no individuality or uniqueness?
Who created cloning?
Gregor Mendel created cloning in 1856.
Cloning uses DNA and and genes.
Gregory Mendel
Scientists have cloned a variety of animals
Technology that can be used to make multiple animals or human beings. a process known as SCNT, which stands for "somatic cell nuclear transfer." In this process, genetic material is transferred from the nucleus of a donor adult cell to an egg whole nucleus has been removed. this reconstructed egg must be treated with chemicals or electric current in order to stimulate cell division. Transgenic falls into this type of cloning.
Another name for therapeutic cloning is "
embryo cloning."
This process isn't meant to create or clone humans, but to grow stem cells and study them to treat disease and study human development. Stem cells can be used to generate any cell in a human's body and extracted from the egg after division of 120 hours.
Name one type of cloning?
Who created cloning?
Name two types of animals that can get cloned?
1. enable mankind to have eternal life
2. cure for heart attack, cancer, and many other dangerous diseases
3. Bringing back friends or relatives who have passed away
4. infertile couples can have children
5. The choice of physical characteristics
6. Testing for genetic disease.
7. Kidney and liver failure,
Although technology attempts to offer us some qualities such as cloning, we should stick to our natural morality, the natural way God made us.
