Should human cloning be illegal?
“The opponents of human cloning do not seem content with a ban on governmental funding of human cloning research, which has already been implemented. Rather, they seek to ban all human cloning research, regardless of whether the research is conducted with public or private dollars. In effect, the current cloning ban proposals would say to scientists, "thou shalt not research" in this particular area.”
On the side against the research of cloning humans is many moral stands against this issue. Many believe that not only should scientist not receive government funds to research this topic more in depth, but that it should be completely illegal to do whether the work is done publicly or privately. This belief stems mostly from the point that research on cloning human beings is touching on God’s domain. Religious enthusiasts would say that humans are all created different for a reason and having a clone of them defies what God wants.
On the other side of the debate, comes many scientists and reason to explain why cloning of humans should be allowed. Science enthusiasts defend cloning as a way to expand our knowledge of the human body and the process in which we are made. If we were to be able to create the technology to safely clone a human, that would give us tremendous insight as to answering the large questions in life like: Where do we come from? How are we made? What makes us human? and so much more. I agree with this view because it would help us better understand so much in the fields of medicine, philosophy, and anatomy.
