Poll: Should Humans Be Cloned?
|After Dolly's birth was
announced in early 1997, the creation of a human clone
became a very conceivable task. Ethicists immediately
began to question the moralilty of
proceeding with cloning research. The United States
Congress, as well as governments around the world
proposed legislation to ban human cloning. In December of
1997, the scientist Richard Seed announced that he
planned to clone a human being, added fuel to the raging
fire of the cloning ethics debate. Those against human
cloning believe the technology will give us dangerous
godlike powers and lead to a more homogeneous human race.
Human cloning supporters feel that cloning will help
infertile couples to produce offspring, help to eliminate
genetic diseases, and improve the quality of life in
general. How do you feel on this issue? Before submitted
