All people that research cloning are unaware of the effects and results that occur and for that reason new mutations may be created which can extinct our civilization. According to the Human Genome Project (HGP) “In 2002, researchers at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, reported that the genomes of cloned mice are compromised… In analyzing more than 10,000 liver and placenta cells of cloned mice, they discovered that about 4% of genes function abnormally.” Since the genomes of mice are compromised and 4 percent of all of their genes are abnormal the chance of new mutation is dangerously high. The likelihood that cloning has been attempted on humans leads critics to believe that mutation has occurred and before long mutation will spread through genes. Also the government are in a way contradicting themselves because the government made a law that states no woman may terminate a
