CLONING HAS SCIENCE GONE TOO FAR INTRODUCTION For years the subject of cloning has captured the imaginations of authors movie directors and much of the human population Cloning is the prospect of creating an animal or even a person that is genetically identical to its parent Until recently the subject seemed farfetched and fictional because no one really realized how close we had actually advanced in cloning research It was during February of 1997 that an embryologist Dr Ian Wilmut announced the birth of a cloned lamb named Dolly She was the first ever successfully cloned mammal from an adult cell What Dr Wilmut did was amazing He took the DNA from a six-year-old ewe and fused it with the egg of another ewe after removing the second ewes own DNA After fusing the cell began to divide as would a regular embryo The embryo was then implanted in a third ewe who only a few months later gave birth to Dolly 1 Upon news of this many people began to question the possibility of not only creating genetically identical sheep but humans as well There has been much controversy on whether or not the cloning of humans as well as animals is ethical or even moral Also there has been much discussion as to whether or not the benefits of cloning outweigh the dangers WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS IN CLONING RESEARCH There is no doubt that Dr Wilmuts new discoveries have brought an uproar of excitement between not only the scientific community but the general public as well Groups such as farmers surgeons and even environmentalists have shown various interests in cloning research The farming community has expressed much intrigue in cloning for the purpose of being able to reproduce copies of their best animals For example a dairy farmer would much rather be able to take his best dairy cow and recreate it by copying
