The Right to "Exceptional Circumstance" Cloning

No life being shall be made by the scientific process of DNA replication.


DNA replication for organ cloning shall only be performed 
for "health-necessary exceptional circumstances."

I believe that cloning shouldnt even be an option.. its weird. why would you want another clone of yourself walking around? you wouldnt really be original or an individual.. you only live one life, as ONE person.

I agree with the previous post. I believe you are one person and one person only. Unique from everyone else. There shouldn't be another you in this world. Not even twins are the same so you shouldn't either.

Researcher may have the potential to eliminate many of the world's problems such as animal extinction, which can also benefit mankind in many ways. On the other hand, I disagree of human cloning. Cloning is unethical and we should not be defying the very foundation of natural creation.

RV said...

Human cloning shouldn't even be an option. A clone could never have its own identity, it would always be a copy, and that is just wrong

I agree with this completely. We should only have cloning if it is necessary to someone I need of it medically.

I agree that cloning should be limited to DNA replication beneficial for health-necessary exceptional circumstances to save lives, not for some scientist or researcher to run around playing play God.

All of the above are 100% correct, cloning if allowed could become a problem just like technology has. there is always someone looking to harm, and abuse technology and i feel knowledge can be a deadly weapon if its in the wrong hands.

Diversity is beautiful. Cloning people can end this diversity. On the other hand I think that clones can be very useful on the field of medicine to reproduce organs and tissues necessary to a sick person.

I personally don't think cloning should be an option.

Luisa Isla said...

Cloning for health related circumstances is fine, but it will be a tough adjustment to accept. As stated above, cloning vital organs and tissues will save a lot of lives.These cloned organs or tissues will prolong the live of that sick individual. But, cloning humans for any other reason seems unethical. Although this could be the next step to evolution.

I agree with animal cloning because it helps conserve some animal species that are on extinction, but human cloning I think is trying to play god by making people identical to another human being, there is one of each one of us in this world, why would you want to have someone else identical to you.

deltoroclaudia said...

As everything in the world cloning has its pros and cons. I do believe in cloning with restrictions. I belive that we can use cloning to save lives. But this has its con since over population will become a problem. Concerning animal cloning I do not agree with it since most of those animals are kept in a filthy captivity.

DNA cloning for medically necessary organ replication is acceptable. Cloning a person as a whole is not. It would be opening Pandora's Box. Relatives may want to clone loved ones with terminal illnesses. Grieving people may want to clone lost loved ones (people have done this with pets already). The military would want endless amounts of soldiers.

I believe that cloning has both positive and negative results. Cloning should be a right if it is used to save a life, otherwise cloning should not be a right. EA

I think cloning should be accepted only in exceptional circumstances where no other choices, to save a life for example, exist. The problem will arise if cloning falls in the wrong hands. Laura R.

I dont agree with clonning unless it was necesary to save a life. But i have to admit that sometimes it would be nice to have a clon who would go to work in my place. Zulima alvarez

I believe cloning should be allowed if its beneficial to someone who has a life threatening problem or a life alter situation that would prevent someone to have a normal life. Where do you draw the line? I'm not quite sure, but as long as it doesn't get out of hand like in the movie, the Island.

I believe that cloning humans and animals should be permitted. We are not God and we should not be playing him. If we clone a human that means that the person is born without a soul. Where does that leave the individual? A person that wants to clone, in my opinion, is just scary and not normal. Cloning should not be an option.

As it stands, I agree with the posting; cloning as the potential to help many, but it also as the potential to do great harm. Once financial gain become associated with cloning it as the potential to do harm.Gary Norris

I do not believe that man should be in control of what God has already designed. I do not think that cloning is a real medical process. I do not support cloning on any level.

No human should be identical, with the exception of twins, triplets, etc. And even then they aren't identical people, they just have the same physical characteristics. I don't believe in cloning for any purpose, at all.

Luz Mery said...

The exception circumstance right of cloning is not one I agree too. I don't think human beings should be cloned as we can't sometimes deal with ourselves, imagine two exaclty like us. Maybe to clone for medical reasons since it's so hard and there is always a long waiting list for body organs. But that would be the only reason for cloning.

Anonymous said...

I agree with that because science should be used with wisdom otherwise could be very dangerous.

Although there are some moral issues opposing , i believe cloning is a necessary step for science and mankind, as was nuclear power.

surfershoes said...

What exactly is an exception though? I mean, if its for medical purpose, say I need a kidney, what are you going to do with the whole rest of my "other" body? I dont think we can stop cloning because we are progressing so much, but I suppose it would be strange to have two of us. However, I feel like these days, anything goes.

Thanks for your comment ;) I love your blog is reallyc ool, amazing.

Cloning should be done for medical reasons. Right now patients that need a kidney transplant for example have to wait years before getting a transplant if they do not have a living donor that is a match. However it should be made available to all the rich and the poor.

Cloning is a serious subject that has many pros and cons. How wonderful our world be if we could have extra organs and body parts if anything would happen to us! We would have no concerns with the issues we have now with so many unfortunate sick people in medical waiting lists.
However, since we do live in a world where there are many mentally sick individuals, cloning could be used for the wrong purposes such as creating new people or duplicating a person whom we would never want to see again in our world that once existed.
Which benefits and risks are better?

Espy said...

At this point in time, cloning should be banned for humans.Gene cloning should be accepted to create vital organs if it means it can save lives. I wouldn't rule out cloning for animals, especially for ones that are at risk of extinction.

Pedro said...

The world would not function with human cloning since it would be degrading to the human race. Organ cloning might be acceptable because people see it as a necessity that they can deal with. P.L

Manuel said...

I disagree with the act of cloning an individual. However, if a clone were to be created, that clone would eventually have different experiences and could not possibly be the same person, or a "copy" of that person. Also, if clones were made just to provide "back-up" organs, then we would find ourselves in a similar situation that depicted in the movie "The Island", which each clone thought they were their own unique being, and were nothing like their original counterparts.

I don't agree with having the right to cloning. I believe that it violates the natural order of life. D. B.

TrustMeImADoctor said...

I believe it is okay to use cloning to get specific body parts such as a kidney or liver, but not to use it to create a living being. Cloning or replicating an individual would cause an excess person to be on the planet. With the limited resources we have today why would we want more stomachs to fill? How will we know if the clone is an actual replica, or will it just be an empty vessel that has no personality? How would you be able to distinguish the clone from the original?

Nicole said...

I am 100% against cloning, not because it is "weird". But, for the simple fact that this world is unquie because there is no one else like you. By changing this fact is a open door to disaster. Cloning organs is not such a good idea. Take an alcoholic for example. They will drink and drink until their Liver is destroyed and expect someone to start cloning healthy livers to give him. By cloning we would be giving people the green light to not take care of themselves and they think it is okay because we can replace their organs.

Shivani said...

I definitely do not agree with cloning. In a religious perspective, God made us as one human being. We are all different for a reason. I do not think scientist should be playing with mother nature. Not even for health issues. I believe there are other ways we can perform health-necessary circumstances, especially if it deals with organs. Solutions like organ donors exist and if worse comes to worse, I am sorry but when your time is up, nothing can stop that. Doctors and family members should accept it and let them rest in peace.

Anonymous said...

I do not think that anyone should be cloned by any scientific process. We have been created to be unique in our own way. I think there are other ways to obtain organs others than cloning. For example, when someone passes away they can choose to donate their organs.-v.p.

Renata said...

In my opinion cloning is completely wrong even if it is for medical purposes. Cloning does not only take away the right for something to be unique but it also changes the course of a life.

human cloning is not okay. being a clone is like living in one's shadow 24/7.

Cloning is something that should not be taken lightly; we are playing with the nature of how things should be. Out of a scientific point it’s something extraordinary, but as a human being we should have enough caution and common sense to know that this is dangerous.

Rosa F. said...

I don't believe in this right at all. There has to be other alternatives to "health-necessary exceptional circumstances". Part of being human is being humane. There is nothing humane about creating clones solely for our benefit without taking into account the fact that they, too, become living beings.

I don't believe in cloning. Nature should take its course no matter what the circumstance. It can be hard to deal with at times , but that is what makes life worth living. lp

I think we should have the right to cloning but only for when its necessary or to obtsin some really important information about, for example: A guy that lived 50 yaers ago and is having an investigation now that hes dead.

I think cloning an actual human being might be pushing boundries a bit, but cloning organs might help those with cancers and other diseases instead of the people having to wait for a donor.

I certainly do not believe on Cloning, but I respect who does it. However, I wouldn't participate In something malevolent like copying someone's genes to create a second copy. I think we are unique as God created each of us as individual.

I believe that human cloning should not be performed. It is dangerous for our future and unhealthy. It should only be acceptable for life threatening circumstances.

Science should be used to help in the medical field but it should not be used to play GOD. I agree that organs should be created from DNA to save lives but it should not be used to create LIFE.

I am all for DNA replication for organ cloning for health necessary exceptional circumstances. Think about it if you or your family member needed an organ to survive it an easy perfectly matched organ. There would be no fear of organ rejection and promises of a healthy life. It would end the selling of organs through the black market. China has been accused of harvesting organs from prisoners. How about some who is willing to sell their liver do they can renovate a house, or poor families desperate to send their child to college? I feel in those last two examples there is an ethical concern here when the poor begin to feel pressured to sell organs in order to simple survive.

I think the idea of cloning does not need consideration. It can be a big consequence in human life. Nobody can be born without God's spirit unless you want to see a monster in a few years. It is constantly good to make experience because you are learning from them, but this one looks bizarre and scary.

DNA replication should only be considered in a medical necessity. In regards to the human genome project for instance and not choosing the desired child out of a catalogue. – D.T

kevin0121 said...

Yes,I agree with "lachinita520" It should only be used for medical reasons. Cloning is a nice thought but there are many consequences to this idea, if it falls into the wrong hands.
