Human Cloning
Lindsey Blum
Period 01 Human Cloning
Dolly the Sheep was born on July 5, 1996 and was the first mammal cloned for a lung disease. This was the breaking point of cloning
people saw this as a medical outbreak
and a disturbing matter There are two causes:
Immune rejections and medical diseases Positive effects
Gives an infertile couple a chance to conceive a child with the same genes
Can cure immune rejections and help cure other diseases. Negative effects
Explioting of women
Can lead to Civil Wars and Violence
Nearly Impossible to track and Keep regulations
Can create a "Poor gene" generations
Humans loose humanity and awe of natural birth
Kills embryos which are inncocent Human Beings Solutions
August 1,2001 Bush Administration banned cloning 265-162 vote
United Nations Banned Cloning 84-34 vote with 37 absentees My Solution
Ban All Human Cloning Nationally Conclusion
I believe that even though there are a lot of positives to human cloning there are more negatives and it is unethical http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://static.howstuffworks.com/gif/cloning-plant.gif&imgrefurl=http://science.howstuffworks.com/genetic-science/cloning.htm/printable&usg=__hli8HFmtUjUGZqOCAl76UmHkKTM=&h=583&w=383&sz=17&hl=en&start=16&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=pgCAaTH5PS8rvM:&tbnh=134&tbnw=88&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dcloning%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26tbs%3Disch:1 Alternatives
Altered nuclear Transfer
Scientists transferred the genetic material from an adult cell into an egg stripped of its own DNA. The egg's proteins reprogrammed the adult DNA, creating an embryo genetically identical to the adult donor.
Grompe believes that by forcing the donor cell to produce a protein called nanog, which is normally found only in embryonic stem cells, he can alter the reprogramming process so that it never results in an embryo.
Instead, it would yield a cell with many of the characteristics of an embryonic stem cell.
