“Hitler Clone’s and playing G-d?”
“Hitler Cloning” and “scientists playing God” are statements used to describe human cloning. When it comes down to the truth of the matter, human cloning is a scientific breakthrough that has a higher chance of helping society than hurting it. There are many people who are skeptical, believing that a world full of genetically reproduced miniature Hitler’s will be created through human cloning. They imagine a second Holocaust starting as the cloned Nazi leaders go on a world-wide scale killing spree, killing millions and leaving the Earth in ruins as they march through countries carrying out their new and improved final solution.

As well as this, it is quite doubtful that G-d will be too concerned with the scientists behind human cloning, especially considering that their cloning will be helping society. In Tae’s essay, he discusses how most people consider human cloning to be an act that goes against G-d, as well as a scientific fiction movie where Hitler’s clones take over the world. As well as this, he tells the reader about how much human cloning can help society. He effectively shows how important it is for people to realize that human cloning is being unrightfully persecuted and misjudged. According to Tae’s essay, “Several states have also established restrictions on human cloning; one state has even banned human cloning. These government actions are irrational and should be immediately revoked. The federal government should regulate, not ban, human cloning. This is because significant benefits can result from cloning technology. The ethical implications are also only temporary. They are...
