Writing Seminar - 0502.227.43 Argument Essay – Human Cloning Act 01:07:31 For many, the issue of human reproductive cloning is up for debate. The issue has grown so much over the years that it has been brought to legislatures and parliaments throughout the world. Most specifically, the United Kingdom of England, Northern Ireland, and Wales, has issued an act to ban human reproductive cloning in the “Human Reproductive Cloning Act 2001”. (Human Reproductive Cloning Act 2001 (c. 23)). This law states that any individual who puts a human embryo into a woman that has not been created by natural fertilization will be prosecuted, and if found guilty may spend ten years in prison, a fine, or both. Other countries had bans on human cloning at one time, but not to this extent or detail. Nevertheless, should cloning be against the law, or are there benefits many do not realize? In most cases, the answer is no, and attempting to clone a human being is both unethical and irresponsible of us as an intelligent race. There are normal, natural means of reproduction in all animals, and we should not interfere with this part of nature. Why would there ever be the need to clone humans? The only cases other than scientific curiosity could be a mother losing her baby in an accident or other related situation such as female couples yearning for a child of their own. Even in a case like this, what would present the need for cloning? Humans are able to reproduce naturally, a child’s mother and father make up what they are. In addition, the financial burden and funding required for creating a clone is out of reach for most families and companies. Moreover, the possible emotional and ethical consequences of human cloning outweigh the benefits. Page | 1
