Potential Medical Benefits 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 mothers or fathers genetic pattern. Potential Harms and Disadvantages 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. It has a low fertility rate. In cloning Dolly, 277 eggs were used, 30 started to divide, nine induced pregnancy, and only one survived to term (Nash). Clones may be treated as second-class citizens. Unknown psychosocial harms with impacts on the family and society. Hmm, I value human life, and if this can preserve human life, I'm all for it.
