Transcript of Cloning

Why would anyone want to make a clone?
Some reasons why someone would want to clone:
1. Cloning for medical purposes
2. Cloning endangered or extinct species
3. Reproducing sick or diseased animals
4. Replace diseased child
What are the draw backs of cloning and impact on the individual and society?
One drawback on the individual is that someone gets to decide who you are, what you will be like, what you may look like, your advantages and disadvantages, and more. You don't get to create yourself. It is immoral. A drawback on society is that people can take advantage of cloning and make unnecessary clones or decisions. This can have a huge impact on both individuals and societies because there are so many things that can go wrong.
What animals have been cloned?
It took scientists 227 tries to make Dolly the sheep!
By: Patrick, Rocelle, Jacob Y, Connor, and Brittney

What happens to the cloned individual in terms of life span?
Does the Catholic church approve of cloning?
Definition of cloning:
The definition of cloning is the production of duplicate copies of either: genetic material, cells, or whole multicellular living organisms.
How does the process take place?
The Church does approve of cloning, but it does not approve cloning of humans because it is like "playing God".

How to Clone:
1) Isolate a cell from a donor female.
2) Take an unfertilized egg from another female.
3) Remove the nucleus from the egg cell.
4) Transfer the somatic cell nucleus into the egg cell.
5) Once you have switched the egg cell nucleus with a different type of nucleus, you need to let the new DNA adjust to the egg cell. The egg cell will have to sit for a couple of hours to let the DNA reprogram so it can act as if it belongs to that egg cell.
6) Now you have to stimulate the egg cell, so the egg can
begin cell division.
7) Once the embryo is fully formed, insert it in the surrogate mother.
8) Now you wait until the baby is born, and you might have a clone!

OK, i know this doesn't really count, but how else do you think I'd fit it in

2 Cat
3 Cattle
4 Deer
5 Dog
6 Ferret

8 Fruit flies

The life span of a cloned individual is about 6 years.

12 Mice

16 Pyrenean ibex (wild goat)
17 Rabbit

22 Wolf
Whenever someone wants to clone their pet, it usually won't exactly turn out the way they thought it would:
Cloning pets
Catholic Sources:
Dolly was the first animal to ever be cloned (1996).
Cloning has both positive and negative effects.
Despite the fact that having a clone may be "cool", it can cause many cons like short life, etc.
Cloning has a positive effect though by being able to have more animals that are going extinct, and cloning organs (heart, lungs, etc.) can give more life.
