All over the world, people are searching for ways to improve themselves and their lives. Cloning can help the lives of millions of people in the United States. It offers a variety of options that can help almost everyone. People will be very happy with the cloning technology. Cloning is good for our world because it can get rid of infertility, it can give people the appearance they want, and it can cure health problems and diseases.
Because of infertility, many couples go through physically and emotionally painful procedures for a small chance of having children. Infertility happens when a woman's ovaries have failed, her eggs are not easily fertilized, or because the man's sperm is not conceivable (Kolata 5). Many couples run out of time or money without successfully having children. Couples go to infertility doctors and try over and over to conceive a child if they cannot get one the first time. Once couples know that they have a chance of having a baby, they will keep trying until it happens. Sometimes they are not so lucky and are never able to have a baby through regular infertility procedures. With cloning, a child could be created and placed into a woman's womb. To do this, they would clone the genes desired by the parents. Infertility clinics expect to be able to add or delete genes to human embryos to create a perfect child (Kolata 13). They can delete genes that could cause disease or disability and add genes that they want in their child. . If an infertile couple was given a choice of a child who is a clone or no child at all, they
Would most likely choose a cloned child (Kolata 19). This feature in cloning will let everyone have the child of their choice. Even if couples do not have fertility problems, they can choose different genes they would like in their child. This would make everyone happy with their child.
Almost every person is self conscious about his or her looks. People usually have plastic or cosmetic surgery to alter themselves to their liking. Although many people have chosen to have plastic surgery, there are many risks. The silicone used for plastic surgery could leak and cause problems for your body. With the cloning technology, these problems and worries would be a thing of the past. Instead of using materials foreign to the body for such procedures, doctors will be able to manufacture bone, fat, connective tissue, or cartilage that matches the patient's tissues exactly (HCF Online). They would clone the patient's bone, tissue, and other parts and alter them. Limbs may also be able to be regenerated with cloning. This will help people who have lost a limb feel better. Anyone will able to have their appearance altered to their satisfaction without the leaking of silicone gel into their bodies or the other problems that occur with present day plastic surgery (HCF Online). Being able to clone and manufacture people's tissue would make people very happy. They would not have to worry about the silicone gels harming their bodies. Once people have the appearance that they want, they will be happy with themselves.
Health is a big issue for millions of people in the United States. Cloning can help with several health problems. Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States and several other industrialized countries (HCF Online). Scientists believe that they may be able to treat heart attack victims by cloning their healthy heart cells and injecting them into the areas of the heart that have been damaged (HCF Online). The heart is the machine that keeps a person alive. By cloning the healthy heart cells of people, many lives could be saved. Our world can also use cloning to clone human organs for transplants. If someone's liver or kidney fails, a liver or kidney could be cloned for transplants. This can help people with diseases in certain areas to live a better life. Another large killer in the world and the United States every year is cancer. Cloning may be able to save many lives. The cloning technique switches cells on and off which makes it able to cure cancer (HCF Online). The studying of cloning cells by scientists will help understand the rapid cell growth of cancer. Scientists still do not know exactly how cells differentiate into specific kinds of tissue, nor to they understand why cancerous cells lose their differentiation (HCF Online). The victims of cancer suffer throughout their lives. Although sometimes the cancer can be cured, the majority cannot be cured. With new technology, cancer might even be able to be stopped before it is even developed. "One researcher reported that neural growth factor can turn off tumor-differentiated cells in 9 days" (Pence 16). Cloning will solve this problem. Many people would not die from cancer because of this. As health problems become a larger issue for millions of people, cloning can help cure them and give them a better life.
Overall, there are many pros to the cloning technology. It is able to help almost anyone and can bring up their self esteem. It can improve everyone's lives in many ways. The world needs a thing like cloning to make everyone happy with themselves. Cloning will help infertile couples conceive a baby, improve a person's physical appearance, and help cure health problems and diseases.
