“What is the world’s view on cloning?”

1.Bob Sullivan, “Religious little consensus on cloning”; 2006, October 4, 2007 Bluford library
Summery- This article is about some religious views of cloning. Sullivan explains, how the religious groups say that it’s ok in a way to clone.
Analysis- Do I think cloning meddles with god’s universe… No, I believe we were in this universe for a reason; a reason to discover and explore. In the Muslim, Jew community both are not in favor of fertilizing embryos to have a complete human but, ok with therapeutic cloning which is cloning for parts of the body. I say, “If you going to dip your foot in the pool you might as well jump in…”

Response- the source helped my in a way of understand where religious people stand in the situation of cloning. This would be something I would love to read more on.

2.George W. Bush. “Both human reproductive cloning and therapeutic cloning should be banned.” www.whitehouse.gov April 10, 2002; October 1, 2002.
Summery- This is on President George W. Bush speech in which he talks about banning cloning over-all. In Bush speech he states how some friends of his are paralyzed and still against cloning and how medicine should be a main and helpful; solution.

Analysis- In Bush’s speech he stat “one reason for banning coning is because there is no evidence that therapeutic cloning would really provide cures for diseases.” It takes time for an experiment like this to work. If you look back to how we got some of our cures today; it’s all from the Germans from when they were experimenting on the Jews. Yes, it was cruel but lives are being saved each day because of it.

Response- this source helped me see how our President George W. Bush feels about cloning. I really didn’t care what Bush thinks on cloning.
