Outline: Banning Human Cloning

I. Introduction

● Succeeded on animal, Dolly sheep => on human => treat diseases, especially infertile couples. ● However, I oppose to clone on human because:
○ Uncontrolled results
○ Expensive costs: to do research and treat
○ Ethical/ moral concerns
II. Support

1. Uncontrolled results:

● How long to live => short life (Ex: Dolly only can live 6-a half years). ● Negative results: diseases, infertilities.
● Scientists do not know clearly about effects and consequences. 2. Expensive expenses:

● To do research: experts, high-technology, etc.
● To cure: high cost => how patients can be affordable? 3. Ethical regulations:

● Use embryonic cells to clone on animal => human embryonic stem cells to search on human => kill unborn children (Ex: Dolly was only one success out of 276 tries) => how many embryonic stem cells will be killed? III. Conclusion

● Should not support to them to do these searches because ○ Negative results
○ High cost
○ Ethical/ moral concerns

Banning Human Cloning

Today, human cloning research is one of the most biggest global controversies because it is related directly to human health and especially infertile patients.  Scientists, medical experts, and governors are cautiously following this issue to know what is going on and how people and politicians respond.  In 1996, after the success of cloning Dolly the sheep by Professor Ian Wilmut, other scientists believed that they could clone a human. However, as science becomes more and more powerful, eventually scientists want to prove that they are always on the crest of a wave in whatever they do.  For me, this controversial issue should not be funded and researched continually.  There are three areas which...
