Once you start cloning, it will lead to more cloning. If you clone ONE 'animal', then you will definitely clone ANOTHER 'animal', and cloning will become widespread.Originally Posted by bosunyum
The things we hold dear are our morals and principles. The right to conceive children, genetic diversity, our individuality.Also, as usual I have several questions as follows;
1. Cloning threatens things we hold dear. what does it mean hold dear?
Normally, when children are to be born - we cannot decide their sex, hair or eye colour, size, intelligence and resistance to disease. With cloning, this, OUR generation (the scientists) could control the genetics of future children (next generation).2. Cloning gives one generation unprecedented genetic control over the next. what does this sentence mean? And what does over the next indicate?
[quote] 3. It is the first step toward a eugenic world in which children becomes objects of manipulation and products of will. here what does the underlined phrases mean?
An object is a 'thing'. Here the children are the 'thing' being genetically modified and manipulated.
The 'genetic identity' is a UNIQUE genetic code. DNA. Your 'makeup' is the same, just said differently, what makes you - you! Selecting the 'genetic makeup' of a child, hair colour, sex, etc and they can be 'made' to order4. the production of cloned embroys is not reallly cloning.Here what does production indicates?
5. promising results with adult stem cellss, if confirmed, may obviate altogether the putative need for cloned stem cells. this sentence is really confusing. what is the author talking about?
6.cloning would invite the exploitation of egg donors. what does it mean exactly by invite the exploitation of egg donors?
7.lastly, the embryo created by cloning would be the first human embryo to have its genetic identity selected in advance, the first embryo whose makeup is not the unpredictable result of uniting sperm and egg. what does this sentence mean and especally what does the underlined expression indicate?
You are welcome!Sorry for the long questions, and as always look forward to seeing your answer.Thank you !!!!!!!!!
