Though many people dismiss the idea of cloning as a way of destroying nature’s diversity, cloning techniques can potentially become life savers for many. The ability to clone will allow scientists to duplicate new, needed organs for patients thanks to therapeutic cloning. Endangered animals will be able to become striving species overtime due to reproductive cloning. Infertile women will once again be granted the gift of giving birth, all creditable to reproductive cloning. Therapeutic cloning, using Somatic-Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT), is the process of harvesting embryotic stem cells for medical purposes, such as cloning new organs for someone in need of a replacement. For example, if a person’s liver fails, therapeutic cloning will allow a new liver to be developed and transplanted into the patient. Since the organ will be composed majorly of the patient’s cells, the chances of the body rejecting the organ is unlikely, this technology will potentially save millions of lives. Reproductive cloning is the process of using an organism’s cells and creating another duplicate organism. The first step of this cloning also uses Somatic-Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT). Using this technology, endangered animals, such as the Siberian tiger would be able to strive on as a living species for many more years than predicted. Reproductive cloning will allow reproduction to be much simpler and quicker. Many couples have to deal with the dreadful reality of the woman not being fertile and able to conceive. Reproductive cloning would eliminate this problem because it would mean that the couple will be able to have a child that is directly related to one of the parents. Therapeutic and reproductive cloning will both be beneficial to the improvement and advancement of the human race and other living beings. Cloning will change medical science drastically, helping to improve the medicine and techniques that doctors rely on. This technology...
