Outline a technique for cloningusing differentiated animal cells. Egg cells are removed from an animal The nucleus is removed and fused with another nucleus from other being’s cell. Electric shock is given to initiate the cell division. Fused cells develop into zygotes. The multiplied cell developed gets transplanted into mother’s womb.
Discuss the ethical issues oftherapeutic cloning in humans. Discuss? Give an account including, where possible, a range of arguments for and against the relative importance of various factors, or comparisons of alternative hypothesis.
Discuss the ethical issues oftherapeutic cloning in humans. What is therapeutic cloning? Therapeutic cloning is the creation of an embryo to supply embryonic stem cells for medical use. Creation of a ‘new’ egg cell using the DNA of a desired differentiated cell and a doner egg cell What is it not? Creating a mini-me for use in evil global domination plots or to create armies! Creating a copy of human to use as an ‘insurance policy’ in case you need a transplant.
Arguments for therapeutic cloning. No need to wait for human donor to die to give organs Some successes already have been shown throughout the world Rejection risk reduced in transplants Conservation of biodiversity Potential cure for incurable disease
Arguments against therapeutic cloning. Religions affiliation– ‘playing God’?? Possible risk of facing first human clone Too difficult and effort-taking Genetic diversity? Abnormalities in clones
