  • Science has discovered a lot of new discoveries throughout time, some of which gave rise to moral issues.Cloning is one of those discoveries and this is one of the topics that our group would discuss.
  • -process of creating an organism with similar genetic setup as the original organism-term originated from Greek Word “klon” -”twig” -process used for planting a new plant from a twig
  • Science has discovered a lot of new discoveries throughout time, some of which gave rise to moral issues.Cloning is one of those discoveries and this is one of the topics that our group would discuss.
  • Cloning has different types which differs based on its uses or its processes.•DNA cloning is also called recombinant DNA technology, or gene cloning. DNA cloning refers to the transfer of a fragment of DNA to a self-replicating genetic element. The DNA is then reproduced in a foreign host. Scientists can produce multiple copies of a gene using DNA recombinant technology. This type of cloning has been in use since the 1970s.
  • •Reproductive cloning is a method of cloning that produces a whole creature, such as Dolly the cloned sheep. In reproductive cloning, genetic material is transferred from the nucleus of a donor cell to an egg in which the genetic material has been removed. Once the egg reaches a viable stage, it is implanted in the uterus of female host. Clones created in this manner are not exact replicas since only the nuclear DNA is the same as the donor.
  • •Therapeutic cloning produces human embryos used in research. Stem cells are harvested from the embryos to aid in treating disease. Stem cells can be used to develop any type of cell needed for the human body. Stem-cell research has been a topic of controversy due to the fact that harvesting of the stem cells destroys the embryo.
  • Science has discovered a lot of new discoveries throughout time, some of which gave rise to moral issues.Cloning is one of those discoveries and this is one of the topics that our group would discuss.
  • Even without the application of religion, Cloning is already encountering ethical issues.Scientifical ethical concerns about whether an action is “right” or “wrong” are often clouded by subjectivity, emotion, and perspective.Cloning members of an endangered species, for example, is generally regarded as a positive application of the technology, whereas attempting to clone an extinct woolly mammoth from preserved tissues elicits more negative responses, including that this interferes with nature.
  • Bioethics - concerned with rights of individuals such as the right to privacy and right to make informed medical decisions. It is difficult to see how these issues would apply to cloning, unless someone was forced or paid to provide material for the procedure, or if an individual was cloned and not informed of his or her origin. -information is supposed to be freely given to those who would like to avail of one
  • A legislation during the US house of representatives sought to ban all human cloning. This includes both “reproductive cloning” that can be used to create a baby, and “therapeutic cloning” that are used for treatments.Due to the bill’s ban on human cloning, any scientist caught producing or selling any embryo produced by human cloningCould expect a fine of up 1 million dollars or ten years in prison.Proposals to exempt therapeutic cloning were defeated.
  • Science has discovered a lot of new discoveries throughout time, some of which gave rise to moral issues.Cloning is one of those discoveries and this is one of the topics that our group would discuss.
  • Christian Roman Catholicism and many conservative Christian groups have opposed human cloning and the cloning of human embryos, since they believe that life begins at the moment of conception and soul gets into body only this way. Christian, however, feel that we have no right to play the role of God, because He is the only one Creator and act of creation depends on Him.
  • Cloning specific parts of the human body for purposes of medical treatment is not prohibited in Islam, but to clone the whole human body would not be permitted under any circumstances. However, if it goes into cloning only specific parts of the human body such as heart and kidneys, for the purpose of treatment, this is permitted and actually recommended and rewarded by Allah.
  • Judaism does not equate life with conception and, though some question the wisdom of cloning, Orthodox rabbis generally find no firm reason in Jewish law and ethics to object to cloning. Liberal Jewish thinkers have cautioned against cloning, among other genetic engineering efforts, though some eye the potential medical advantages.
  • Ronald Y. Nakasone, a Buddhist priest and Professor of Buddhist Art and Culture at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California stated, "The Buddhist response to the possibility of cloning human beings is not if, but when . . . Would we accord a cloned person the benefits enjoyed by those who are born naturally? I would hope so." Buddhists even believe in the natural order of the world and to clone humans would be violating that rule.
  • Science has discovered a lot of new discoveries throughout time, some of which gave rise to moral issues.Cloning is one of those discoveries and this is one of the topics that our group would discuss.
  • Human trafficking refers to the recruitment, transportation, transfer or harboring, or receipt of persons with or without the victim’s consent or knowledge, within or across national borders by means of threat or use of force, or other forms of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of power or of position, taking advantage of the vulnerability of the person, or the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation which includes at a minimum, the exploitation or the prostitution of others forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery, servitude or the removal or sale of organs.
