Can you imagine another identical of you? Well considering that there is no law against it, scientist has done experiments relating to this issue, it’s called cloning. Reasoning why scientist want to do cloning is because they want to save the endangered species. Some back-ground knowledge to know what cloning is, a clone is producing asexually, meaning it is the exact replica of the parent. Dolly the sheep was the first cloned mammal. And finally, the only endangered animals so far, they have cloned was cows, oxen, sheeps, and wolves.
Two unfortunate things that occurred as a result in this experiment is there is no genetic diversity and the cloned animals may have health problems. However, knowing the back-ground knowledge there two types of cloning, therapeutic and reproductive.
Therapeutic cloning is the used of cloning for medical purposes, it is stem cells that can help cells generate new body parts. It can also supply to treat human diseases. And the last type of cloning is Reproductive cloning, is the use of one embryo into multiple identical people.
That being said cloned animals can expressed different features during their development. It is also used to produced animals with desirable traits, including agriculture products, therapeutic agents and restoring endangered animals.
Two ethical reasoning that why people would want to clone is because it saves the extinction of the universe reasoning why people would want to argue this matter is because there is so many theories going around on how this earth is dying and their will be no future for humans.
However, if they can solve this with sending clones to other planets that can still take the same requirements that we need to live, I believe that it is a saver for mankind. Second reasoning, cloning can treat or cure multiple diseases. Can you imagine those survivors that survived an excruciating event and was able to genetically regenerate their loss limbs? Or the diseases that younger and younger children are obtaining can be treated in an early age due to reproductive cloning.
Categorical imperative, an ethical theory that came from Kant. Which means to invite us to act as if golden rule of treating others as you wish to be treated. This ethical theory relates to the ethical standpoint of the pros of why people would want to clone because it tells you if you see someone mentally and physically damage you would want them to be treat the best possible way, just like if you were in the same predicament. The second ethical theory is “Justice as Fairness” by John Rawls. This theory stated that in order for something to be morally correct it had to a lot the most amount of justness in terms of being fair to all. In other words, being able to think as a whole, to care for more than just yourself and to not be ignorant. Everyone should have the right to have what other people has. This relates to the people who want cloning because it passes on the method of fairness, just because you have two arms and the other person has one. Shouldn’t the other person have the same opportunity to function with two arms.
