Good afternoon to all. I am so thankful to get this opportunity to provide my view so human is a best and unique creature of god in the modern world we are always improving our technology and its a good implementation for human cloning we can even more research on human being like the organ generation process any string operation transforming data from natural brain to artificial brain but every more resulting in a sore so if we develop our human cloning for the human welfare and good then it is too great if we utilise in any illegal process then war will happen actual human power may be reduced so human cloning should not be stopped but we can investigate that process in a particular way so that it is utilised only in welfare way.

In my opinion, Cloning is just helped to human and Human cloning is the creation of a genetically identical copy (or clone) of a human. The term is generally used to refer to artificial human cloning, which is the reproduction of human cells and tissue. It does not refer to the natural conception and delivery of identical twins. The possibility of person cloning has raised controversies. These ethical concerns have prompted several nations to pass laws regarding human cloning and its legality.

I think human clonning from a research point of view is good. It can answer many unanswered questions about life. But from a practical point of view, there should be limitations on human clonning. If it is used for organ regeneration, that will be great. But if it is used for creating complete human copy, if possible, that can be lead to crime, increased population etc. So, government should keep on eye on human clonning without banning it.

The first thing that pops into our mind after hearing the word "Human Clones" is a creepy eerie sci-fi movie that would be a blockbuster. We always fear the unknown. Just because scientists research on human cloning doesn't mean that they would create a photocopy machine and fill the world with clones any time soon.

I won't say that the ethical issues arising in this field are a mad man's mind but I can assure you that Research on cloning doesn't always mean creating a whole living human who is developed to be treated like a lab rat.

Artificial embryos are done in a petri dish and it need not be injected into a mother. These embryos hold immense potential that could be the answer to life. The stem cells in these embryos is the key to cure cancer or neuronal diseases. As a biotechnologist, I believe that the study on cloning should be strictly monitored and laws must be enforced for the monitoring purpose and not for banning.

Cloning should be banned after a certain extent. Cloning leads to more and more people which is over population. India is already running behind world number 1 China and are population is about 1,296,834,042 as far as I know. There are many effect that were to come after the process. I personally don't support it. It maybe be jaw dropping but if you actually think carefully about the consequences that will arise after the cloning process becomes main stream you would accept with me.

Thank you.

Hello friends,

First of all, we need to understand what does human cloning means. It means the creation of a genetically identical copy of a human. I think the research on human cloning should be carried out because if can help persons with a deadly disease like cancer by removing their cancer cells. It can also help people with disabilities to get back their body parts. Soldiers who fought for us, if losses any part of the body during a fight then that can be reproduced.

But it has to be carried out very carefully if the clone produced is harmful to your society has to be killed. Human cloning can also lead to death if the cloning is not successful. So research should be done until it is 100% sure that the experiment will be successful. So, human cloning is useful until the serving of mankind is done.

Research on human cloning has two faces. If talk about the law of nature i.e.whatever has taken birth have to face death one day then its fine to say that research on human cloning should be banned. As if human replica is developed by human itself then it will create unbalance in nature and no will want to leave this world. But if we divert our mind towards another face of this coin then we will come say it can have various advantages.

1. Lots of our soldiers lost their lives for us and lots of them lost their body parts in the outrage. So if it becomes possible to reproduce their lost body part then it will be a great gift to them.

2. As it is assumed that human replicas will be free from the diseases which are prevailing in the original body then numerous of lives can be saved which are suffering from deadly diseases such as cancer and aids.

So research on human cloning is great till it is not against the God and having the concept to serving mankind in mind.

Yes, human cloning should be banned because of several disadvantages like,

1. This research process need huge amount of money and man power.

2. Due to cloning there is exploitation to mankind and others.

3. There are chances that the clone developed be immature or created with defect which can harm both to society as well as to the clone himself.

4. And second if that clone development then what is the guarantee that he can live life without any defects in future and if its death span is early than the one who would have adopted that clone will also get hurt emotionally.

Friends cloning has its own advantages & disadvantages.

Advantage is that our government it self-promotes to preserve the stem cells at the time of birth, So that at any time if a person loses any part of his body it could be replicated, but when this goes into replicating human beings completely it leads to disadvantages, like taking advantages of person who have been born naturally to exploit things of him and even if a replica is done (for a dead) people will not have mindset to accept him as he is, will have a thought of alien-like feel, so things lie on how we use it and see it and also researchers must be done on good basis.

Hello, everyone, I think research on such topics should be encouraged.

Cloning refers to creating genetically identical copies. Therapeutic cloning can be used to cure illness or replace any organ with the help of stem cell. However if human clone are created it could raise questions on person identity as clones are genetically similar and there are people who could take disadvantage of this. Thus government should make certain rules for this and cloning should be only done by governments permission.

Hello everybody.

Today we are here to discuss about the topic cloning and human research on it. I agree with my friends who above said that cloning is a developing field of science and should be encouraged surely. Yes I do agree that cloning should be encouraged but not all types of cloning should be encouraged to be particular cloning of organs should be encouraged surely as because it can save the lives of millions dying by organ failure but sexual cloning ie cloning the identical twin of a person should be allowed under certain conditions only and rules have to be made regarding it. Otherwise it should not be allowed as because it would make society more and more complex.

Conclusion : Cloning should be encouraged but not of all types and rules regarding cloning should surely be made.

Cloning is a developing field of medical science which has to be encouraged so that it can carry out wide researches that could help preventing many diseases. This could greatly reduce organ theft making organ transplantation an easy process, with less chances of rejection (due to mismatch).

But with one disadvantage even though it contributes to development of science, this may lead to confusions and emotional instability. So cloning should be restricted process done only by the government in an highly confidential way.

Hello friends, Its Shivam Singh from PAC camp, GORAKHPUR, and topic to discussion is as we all know cloning.

So, friends I think that every coin has two faces one is good and another one is bad that no one accept it. I support reproductive human cloning but we should make law about reproductive human cloning. It is a new field of mankind. It is like twins brother/sister who is born later a few year. Because sooner/later we should explore outer space by reproductive human cloning.

The main motive of cloning is not regenerate the human, but the body part of human body. Stem cell are being cloned so that any human part can be reproduced if needed. Cloning is medical term which use for creation of human/another creature of earth without natural system with the help of stem cell. With the help of this technique a man can easily get the required part of body. But with the help of cloning some evil minded person will use it in the wrong way tooo.

So, cloning should be permitted but only for creating body parts not for creating a new creative to absolute the nature is system by making body organs we can help humanity and needy person. So, in my perception it should be banned/exist but in a strict surveillance or control of government authorities. THANKS.

Hello friends.

Its Bhawani and topic to discussion is as we all know cloning.

So friends I think that every coin has two side either one is good or another one is bad for humanity. So friends as we are talking on cloning.

First of all. We have to know what is Conning. Conning is medical terms which use for creation of a human or another creature of earth without natural system with the help of stem cell.

With the help of this technique a man can easily get the required part of his body. In war time we should easily provide the body parts for wounded soldiers by this they can serve nation in better way instead of a chaos life.

But some evil minded persons will use it in wrong way too.

So conning should be permitted but only for creating body parts not for create a new creature to absolute the nature's system by making body organs we can help humanity and needy person.

So in my perception it should be exist but in a strict surveillances or control of govt authorities.

Like any other great innovative idea, Cloning is no less of a groundbreaking idea. It is a very exciting research subject with plenty of prospects. But the reason behind cloning should be justified for its research to be carried forward. Any scientific research nowadays should be pursued keeping in mind that it should be a benefit for the society and less of a hindrance or a problem. That said, I believe Therapeutic cloning should be encouraged as it deals with regrowth of malfunctioned organs as a result of a life threatening disease. For humans, this is nothing but a boon.

Human cloning is a very controversial subject. It can disrupt the balance in the society which is having unique identities of everybody. Adding to the fact that it is a great hindrance of the natural process that has always existed on this planet. Human cloning can lead to wars, misunderstandings which do not contribute to anything positive at all. Every life was brought in this world with a fixed time and a purpose. Disrupting the basic laws of nature without any idea of the repercussions that it would have is very risky. Hence, in my opinion reproductive cloning should be discouraged.

Well I feel every coin has two face, one is advantageous and the other is disadvantageous. In the case of cloning is the same. Looking into its advantages, if cloning is restricted to therapeutic cloning, it will be a great boon of science. It will help the medical field in the serious diseases like cancer or AIDS. But if it will exceed its limit to reproductive cloning, the it will hamper the national growth.

Taking the consciousness of India's population, which is itself too much, in such case if there will be such kind of cloning two people with same identity will be really a difficult task. On the other hand two people with same identity may harm either of them in case like crime or else. So I personally feel that cloning should not be extended upto the limit of creation of a human being of similar identity.

Have you ever thought in the cloning of Dolly, it resulted in the death of many embryos and newborns before success achieved. (The Dolly experiment started with 277 fused eggs, of which only 29 became embryos. ) In addition, even if the human clone survived, it is not guaranteed that it would develop normally. The genetic material in cloning Dolly came from a 6 year old mammal. Then how it is possible that cloning of human will be normal.

One thing more that in human cloning, all human beings will be identical. Which means that entire human is at a risk of getting infected by the same type of pathogen. In scientific point of view, if everyone has the same type of genes they may have same kind of serious disease. Then cloning will be detrimental in terms of a great disaster.

Richard Nicholson of the British Bulletin of Medical Ethics also said that cloning research may well be sowing the seeds of our own destruction in his report. Then we also must think for a while that Human cloning transgresses the creativity of nature, because it is not via the natural reproductive process. Human cloning is creating life.

So in last I would say that it gives us new direction to research in the field of medical line.

There should not be any sort of ban on cloning. Cloning human beings does not harm any one rather can help world a lot. If all the scientists say Newton or Darwin would have been cloned then this world would have been today in new era. Nature too has provided enough evidences that cells are totipotent as well as pluripotent. We human are just using these potential provided by nature. And remember invention requires sacrifice.

If we use the human cloning in correct way it gives us more benefits like requirement of jean, DNA, etc. It can't lose more blood so in during baby birth time it very useful to all womens. And we can use the lot of places. For example if a man was interested in cloning and he was involved in cloning it create the another man like him, the new created cloning man have the same knowledge like him.

There are two types of human cloning:therapeutic cloning and reproductive cloning. Therapeutic cloning basically deals with duplicating cells and organs which will be provided for treatment of malfunctioned organs. It will have great medical significance and it will provide great assistance in treating diseases like cancer and AIDS. Reproductive cloning will generate identical twin of an individual. This cloned individual will have a tendency to behave exactly as the subject individual thanks to the similar genetic architecture. Therefore this new "human being" will have a right to say, in case he commits a horrible crime or is manipulated by some notorious organization, that he was destined to do so, that his life is planned and he has no control over it. This can trigger chaos in the society. Secondly human cloning will complicate the problem of parentage in society. For example a woman donating DNA for a baby to be born through cloning will be clone's genetic twin not his mother. So the set up genetic relationship b/w a mother and child will change and it will complicate the society. But above all creating a new human is asexual and will disrupt the balance of nature. That's why I am in favor of therapeutic cloning and against reproductive cloning.

Well friends every topic has two faces. Whether it is advantageous or disadvantageous.

Clonning as per biotech confrontation is said to form a copy of the original one.

But while having clonning in case of human there are some diificulties.

1) there should be no concept of family.

2) female sholud be considered as manipulator and childrens as product.

3) there shall be no father to daughter or mother to son relationship.

4) clonning of one individual having one specific property shall give rise to a clone having deficient to the qualities of the individual.

Well now everyone should have heard the name "DOLLY" a clone sheep.

She was found to have some problem with artheritis at the age of about 5 months. As the stem cells that has been taken from the mother. So humans could suffer from various diseases at early age if they are being clonned.

All matter is composed of basic elements. Science calls them enzymes, atoms and molecules. Certain molecules react in a particular way to produce certain reactions.

This is an undisputed fact.

If in a possibility that, man can ever make those molecules behave exactly as NATURE did it in its course of billions of years of evolution, then is it not a wonder?

Clonning is not a boon or curse in itself. It all comes down to who uses it for what and how it is recieved by the masses.

Clonning of humans is a far distant goal yet to be realized. As a science may not be banned in my opinion.

Now talking precisely on human cloning researches I feel the same for these. This is also a field which is less explored and talked about. I totally agree to the side effects it holds and the disaster it could produce if used with less care, but my point is that, is there any thing which does not have a negative aspect to it? Has man ever invented a thing which is completely harmless and does not have any negative touch to it? So why is this indignation to cloning research?

Very few of us are here who will be aware of the technology and use it for mankind because we all are busy in our life and people who work for it have to always work slowly following all government rules but bad people never miss to use scientist's effort in every possible bad way at any second because they don't need any rule to do it. Thus through such researches we just help the evils to emerge out and effect the mankind.

Has there been any biological research that hasn't imposed any threat on the society or the environment? No. Cloning is just something bigger. Research is necessary but under strict limits and supervision. If Cloning ever comes to existence and clones start to become uncontrolled, it will be a big problem. Biological weapons are already causing so many diseases and are being used inspite of the ban upon them.

Someone said if it were not possible in God's will, it wouldn't have ever been known to man. There are many things which have proved to be disadvantageous to man in almost all the ways. So this logic cant be correct.

So the conclusion is although research is necessary for progress of mankind, cloning is something which in wrong hands will surely be a threat.

what i think is even if we clone newton or einstein , the mental abilities of the clones will be different from the original ones.we can reproduce only their physical resemblance.Even if we produce a clone with same mental abilities , what about the experience gained by great scientists during their research? Clones can't have that.....
So, a clone cannot replace a person.....I think Cloning can be used in some fields of science.....

Cloning is a miracle in human research's. It should be appreciated. But this invention may cause may fluctuations in the natural cycle. The population can be increased enormously and the moral values will be threatened I mean that if there is a clone for Micheal Jackson the people won't recognize his greatness as they think he will be always their to entertain them for ever which is a very bad situation that leads to the loss of human emotions and relationships.

As my friend has said that if we do human cloning we will be interfering with gods creation but it would be a boon for animals, in what terms can you actually distinguish animals from that of human, in terms of intelligence?

Hi this is Bhanu. According to my view cloning is a process in which the appearance of the person can be copied but not the habits and abilities. What I mean to say is we can clone the great scientists like Einstein, newton and etc. But we cannot control the mindsets of the cloned persons. That is a cloned Einstein may become a terrorist, rather than becoming a scientist. In this case the pride of original Einstein gets damaged.

I agree with some of them who said that a research without implementation is of no use. So cloning should be banned.

Hello everyone,.

I would begin the discussion in not so affirmative tone, science has rocketed and leaped the conventional barriers. There has been Genetically modified plants then why are we restricting it to immovable objects. If a better clone with favourable characteristics can be produced then we should not procrastinate much on the thought. But it should remain under stern vigil of authorities. May be soon we might see a new soldier with improved combat, highly trained in martial arts and et-al activities. Even we might clone some best brains and permanently eradicate genetic disorders like dow's syndrome and others. Finally, equal thoughts should be given on the both the sides.

I think we should not avoid scientist from producing the clone. It will be one of the advantage in this era. As we are building new systems everyday we are trying to improve are life style, new gadgets, new machines. Someone said that already population is increasing then by building clones further why to increase population. I would like to tell my friend that scientist will not create clone of useless person. So I am damn sure that it will not affect our population. They will only build clone of the people who are or who were very great and will be helpful for the nation. And the main thing is for every single thing there are pros and cons. Thats why we cant say it will affect our life. As one takes things in that way the things gives the result and its totally depend upon us to develop it at what level or extent.

If we think scientifically then also we found its not right because if any thing wrong happen with the cloning then negative result will be more dangerous then we can expect.

Even though today, the technology has a great impact because of man's creative, innovative ideas, there is an unseen power beyond which none of the hi-fi tech can go!.

God has given a beautiful life for every creature. So no one has the right to go against it. I agree researches have to be done to expose the mysteries of the world. But those researches should be such that they must not be a threat to a human life, instead should be like a candle.

Human cloning might give rise to a similar human as us. But who knows this new product can become an einstein or even a hitler!It is difficult to predict a normal human's mind in that case how can one predict an outcome of a research! Even scientifically speaking, the outcome of the cloning do not have stamina as the original one.

"CREATION" is a process done by the nature. So I think no one has to interfere in that.

But by cloning one's form may not die in the stipulated time that is one may become immortal. As a consequence it will lead to population explosion. Secondly if the cloning technology is acquired by the terrorists like Osama bin laden, Doud Ibrahim, laskar-e toiba group then it will be difficult to stop them from destroying the whole world. The security of any country will be in danger. Hence every country shake hands against cloning and come together to take stern steps against it.

When you say human cloning, it doesn't mean that you get an exact replica of that human being. And moreover, the result of the clone is a new born baby, rather than a brain-washed full grown with no emotions.
Look at a positive aspect of cloning. It could be used as a way for infertile couples to have children. Cloning and surrogacy could go hand in hand.
Also, it could be used as a way to get rid of any genetic problems that a couple may have. This could especially be of great importance to the people suffering from genetic mutations from the Bhopal Gas Tragedy.

I would like to say that banning cloning is not a solution. The many medical breakthroughs it has can benefit the human race to a great extent. But it must be regulated and kept under strict guidance.
Like many other inventions cloning too has its drawbacks. For example a simple air conditioner: gives us comfort from high temperatures but on the other hand the CFCs coming out of it deplete the ozone layer,thus affecting human health. Likewise human cloning to has its pros and cons.

Most of you have discussed the effect of human cloning on the society. But consider the plight of that clone. We consider God as our creator. Being created by a scientist would that cone be even considered a human? Would she be acceptable to the society?Would she be given the same status we enjoy?
