  1. 1. The Clone Wars:The Ethical Issues of Human Cloning <br />By: Ryan Huelsmann<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. Embryos Not humans<br />
  4. 4. The Two Methods<br />Embryo splitting <br />Isolate individual cells or clusters before they are differentiated into specific tissues<br />Growing them into separate embryos<br />Both carry the same genetic material<br />Nuclear transplantation<br />Taking a cell and removing its nucleus<br />Introduce an unfertilized egg with a nucleus already removed<br />Implant the nucleus into the egg<br />
  5. 5. Differences<br />Embryo splitting<br />Two progenitors or parents <br />Limited number of duplicated<br />Basically it is just copying <br />Nuclear transplantation<br />One progenitor or parent<br />Can produce more clones<br />Allows for genetic manipulation<br />
  6. 6. Why Clone?<br />Improve chances of pregnancy<br />Minimize number of procedures for those undergoing in vitro fertilization<br />Help diagnose the embryo of any defects before implanted<br />Source of fetal tissue, organs, ovaries for the mother<br />
  7. 7. Why continued<br />Donors for organs<br />Create embryonic stem cells<br />Having more children or replacing ones who are lost<br />
  8. 8. Why NOT<br />What make us Human?<br />Spirituality<br />Embryo splitting denies individuality<br />Nature vs. Nurture has a whole new front<br />Where will the eggs come from?<br />Women<br />Harsh effects for egg harvesting<br />
  9. 9. Why NOT<br />As a result eggs will have become a marketable commodity <br />Biological reasons or survival of species<br />Lack of diversity<br />Lab mistakes<br />Lose ability to adapt<br />Lose immunities to diseases<br />
  10. 10. United Nations <br />The world has questions over this issue.<br />Agency responsible in determining this is United Nations Educational Scientific Organization<br />Actions already taken<br />Very liberal South Korea and United Kingdom<br />United States has restrictions over this matter<br />
