As a human race we have pursued constant technological progression and advancement Indeed our claim to the title of superior race can be attributed in part to the fervor in which we go about improving our own existence through invention and discovery Thanks to advances in medicine we have increased the overall lifespan of men and women Due to continuous improvements in industrial technology machines now do virtually everything for us that our ancestors had to do with their own hands Every day something is created that makes our lives easier We are blessed with an intellect higher than that of any other creature on Earth and we make unabashed use of it Quite possibly our ancestors foresaw the day when our intellectual capacity would lead us in a direction that we would be ill prepared to follow That day has arrived with the development of cloning The cloning of sheep cows frogs and other animals has already been successfully completed and human cloning is now a realistic possibility the only constraints being the ethical and moral issues associated with reproducing a perfect copy of another human being In The Paradox of Cloning the author James Q Wilson argues the benefits of cloning and asserts the gains will turn out to exceed the risks Wilson is wrong in his assumption While I concede that cloning technology offers some exciting benefits total human cloning also carries frightening worldwide ramifications While cloning is still in the infancy stage we as a worldwide society should collectively reject any efforts to further technology in the area of human cloning Wilson states that we need not react immediately to human cloning He cites the 277 attempts that it took to clone one sheep and insists that the road to human cloning will be long and difficult I fail to see the logic here Regardless of how long successfully cloning a human actually takes allowing laboratories to proceed with research
