One must understand that cloning does not produce an exact copy of the person being cloned. Â What cloning does, is that it copies the DNA/genes of the person and creates a duplicate genetically. Â The person will not be a Xerox copy. Â He or she will grow up in a different environment than the clone, with different experiences and different opportunities. Â Genetics does not wholly define a person and the personality. How would cloning be beneficial to society or the individual today. The possibility that through cloning technology we will learn to renew activity of damaged cells by growing new cells and replacing them. The capability to create humans with identical genetic makeup to act as organ donors for each other, i.e., kidney and bone marrow transplants. The benefit of studying cell differentiation at the same time that cloning is studied and developed. Sterile couples will be able to have offspring will have either the mother’s or father’s genetic pattern.However, when we speak of the positives we also must look at the negative side. Â The possibility of compromising individualities. Loss of genetic variation, A “black market” of fetuses may arise from desirable donors that will want to be able to clone themselves, i.e., movie stars, athletes, and others, Technology is not well developed. Â It has a low fertility rate. Â In cloning Dolly, 277 eggs were used, 30 started to divide, nine induced pregnancy, and only one survived to term (Nash).
