It is the year 2010 As you pick up your daily issue of The Age you begin to read some of the articles on the front page Interesting articles include Cure to Cancer Found Due to Cloned Stem-cells and Former President George Bushs Cloned Heart Transplant a Success Everyone thinks all these good things are coming from cloning I cant believe we didnt try this sooner However 10-15 years down the track those headlines begin to change to be more like Mutated Clones- Are They Still Classified as Human and Clone Armies- Could it Happen Its only then that people will start to feel nervous and realise the implications of their actions but by then it would probably be too late So the question that is has been posed to us now is this should cloning be allowed The answer to this is a clear no Many argue that cloning will benefit many people in various ways such as providing genetically related children for people who are infertile and allowing for stem-cell research However they choose to blatantly ignore the many risks associated cloning a human being When man attempts to play God it can never turn out well One of the risks that Id like to discuss is the health risk from mutation of genes - an abnormal baby would be a nightmare come true A particular worry is the possibility that the genetic material used from the adult will continue to age so that the genes in a newborn baby clone could be 30 years old or more on the day of birth Many attempts at animal cloning produced disfigured monsters with severe abnormalities So that would mean creating cloned embryos implanting them and destroying those that look imperfect as they grow in the womb However some abnormalities may not appear till after birth A cloned cow recently died several weeks after birth with a huge abnormality of blood cell production
