Human cloning

  1. 1. Human Cloning<br />By Todd Swann and Vincent Pagliaroli <br />
  2. 2. Basic Principles of Genetics<br />Individual alleles control the inheritance of trait. Dominant alleles mask up the recessive alleles.<br />The alleles are neither dominant or recessive.<br />Punnett square shows a cross between two parents<br />
  3. 3. Human Genome Project<br />It started in 1990 the main goal of the human Genome project is to identify the DNA sequence of every gone in the Human genome.<br />Researchers may gain a better understanding of how humans develop from a fertilized egg to a adult. Scientists are researching the cloning of animals and humans.<br />The Gina law prohibits insurance companies from discriminating against people with an existing medical condition. <br />
  4. 4. Genetic Disorders<br />A single cell gene disorder is sickle-cell disease which affects the blood. They have abnormal hemoglobin which are blood cells that carry oxygen.<br />Down syndrome people have too many or too few chromosomes. They have a extra set of chromosomes. <br />Klyfelters syndrome is another disorder that affects chromosomes.<br />Genetic counseling is helpful to couples who are aware of issues within there family. The counselor will help them understand there disorder and the risks they will face.<br />
  5. 5. Human cloning Pro<br />1.Cloning might produce a greater understanding of the cause of miscarriages, which might lead to a treatment to prevent spontaneous abortions. This would help women who can't bring a fetus to term. It might lead to an understanding of the way a morula (mass of cells developed from a blastula) attaches itself to the uterine wall. This might generate new and successful contraceptives.<br />2. Reproductive cloning would allow lesbians to have a child without having to use donor sperm, and gay men to have a child that does not have genes derived from an egg donor (though, of course, a surrogate would have to carry the pregnancy). <br />
  6. 6. Human cloning con<br />1.Cloning may reduce genetic variability, Producing many clones runs the risk of creating a population that is entirely the same. This population would be susceptible to the same diseases, and one disease could devastate the entire population. One can easily picture humans being wiped out be a single virus, however, less drastic, but more probable events could occur from a lack of genetic diversity. For example, if a large percentage of an nation's cattle are identical clones, a virus, such as a particular strain of mad cow disease, could effect the entire population. The result could be catastrophic food shortages in that nation.2.     Many other negative aspects about human cloning have been debated among scientists and critics. One aspect is the possibility of physical harm to the human embryo. They see that technology is not safe enough to use on humans. Some are also afraid that clones will age quicker since the cell used in the cloning procedure has already been used in a real life individual. <br />

  8. 8. conclusion<br />In conclusion I think human cloning is a good Idea. Human cloning is a easer way to make humans. Human cloning also allows gays and lesbians to have a baby. Lesbians would not have to get sperm donors. Gay men can have baby’s and they don’t have to go to a adoption center to have or get a kid. That’s why I am for human cloning.<br />
