Transcript of IB TOK Oral Presentation, Cloning

Should Scientists Clone Living Things? Ethics WITH Cloning Description Personal view What is cloning? This theory states we should do whatever is wished by god and should not do what condemned by him Religious theory is a theory in philosophy about right and wrong actions. It says that the morally best action is the one that makes the most overall happiness or "utility" (usefulness). This is not limited to the happiness caused by a single action but also includes the happiness of all people involved and all future consequences. Utilitarian theory This theory states that people should do things only if it is beneficial for them selves!!! Self-interest theory We are responsible for creating the life
we are hence responsible to treat threat them as individuals
Every individual is different- you won't clone individualistic
We will not know what clones could do to our society until we will made a perfect one Cloning in biology is the process of producing similar populations of genetically identical individuals that occurs in nature when organisms such as bacteria, insects or plants reproduce asexually. Cloning in biotechnology refers to processes used to create copies of DNA fragments (molecular cloning), cells (cell cloning), or organisms. Example of Cloning Dolly- was a remarkable sheet in being the first mammal to be cloned from an adult somatic cell, using the process of nuclear transfer. She was cloned by Ian Wilmut, Keith Campbell and colleagues at the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh, Scotland. It took 277 attempts to create Dolly. The success rate when cloning animals is very low. Ethical Issues with Cloning Why do we consider cloning so wrong? -we are messing with life's balance -clones are going to be commodities -getting away person's individuality -simple failure We are not killing anyone intentionally ...we are trying to play god HUGE RISKS the creation of life is suppose to be a natural thing where men and wife are doing it naturally. BENEFITS Longer life expectancy Faster advancements in technology Definite ability to produce children SLAVE CLONES What is science? a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws BY ALEXANDER TRALLA THE END
