Introduction to Cloning
  • Cloning is the process of doubling a animal,
    people and anything else I can think of.
    Scientists studying a particular gene often use
    bacterial plasmids do generate multiple copies of
    the same gene. Plasmids are self-replicating
    extra-chromosomal circular DNA molecules,
    distinct from the normal bacterial.

Should humans be cloned?
  • Physicians from the American Medical Association
    and scientists with the American Association for
    the Advancement of Science have announced in
    public that they are against human cloning.
  • Due to the inefficiency of animal cloning (only
    about 1 or 2 viable offspring for every 100
    experiments) and the lack of understanding about
    reproductive cloning, many scientists believe
    that it would be unethical to even attempt to
    clone humans. They believe this because about 30
    of clones born alive are affected with large
    offspring syndrome, along with other
    disabilities.

Pros of Cloning
  • Some pros of cloning is
  • Fewer natural animals will be used for studies.
  • Food sources infinitely replenishible
  • Ability to produce super humans
  • Medical methods will be thrusted into a new area

5
Cons of cloning
  • Some pros of cloning is..
  • ability to produce super humans
  • Countries could clone armies
  • Animal rights could be considered violated
  • If humans can be cloned it makes them property,
    which can be sold. Inhumane

6
Our Opinion
  • Our opinion on cloning is bad. We think that
    this is bad because other countries will be able
    to clone armies and that would not be good. They
    would be able to clone more nuclear weapon. This
    is why we think that cloning is bad.

7
Summary
  • We learned that cloning is bad because it can
    clone anything such as armies and weapons and
    that would not be good. We also learned that
    cloning can clone humans and dogs. It can also
    make a super human.
