Ethics around human cloning has been a very controversial topic in several past years (Biller-Adorno, 63). The aim of this essay is to do a pro and con analysis of the issue of cloning based on the opposing views of those who are for cloning and those who are against. To start with, the essay will explore one pro of the issue as highlighted by its supporters. After the explorations of the pro, the exploration of a con against the pinpointed pro, as purported by those who are against the issue of cloning, will follow. Similarly, the essay will have an established argument that will favor one side followed by an explanation of why it is logically wrong to support that side. 

One of the advantages of cloning, as purported by its supporters, is that it assists sterile couples to have their offspring (Kolers, 126). This offspring may either have the father’s genetic pattern or the mother’s according to the agreement between the couples. In cases where couples get one child and become disappointed that they are unable to have another child due to infertility, cloning can help such couples to bear other children. This pro has a very strong argument. Further, countless couples have complications bearing children, and occasionally it is difficult for couples to bear progenies because of infertility. 

Cloning, for this reason, would allow such couples to their progenies. Similarly, a woman may be born lacking a uterus or may have other difficulties and is unable to yield eggs. For this reason, with the assistance of a surrogate mother, such a woman can have children of hers through the use of her DNA or that of her husband (Holden, 601). These examples are arguments that the supporters have put across in endorsing cloning. 

One of the cons against the above pro that is raised by the anti-cloning supporters is that cloning would result in the loss of individuality because the clone’s genetic inclinations and conditions would be recognized. Also, if one is brought up by a clone-parent or is a sibling to a clone, one might have excessive anticipations that one ought to live up to (Walters, 1161). Despite this, the clones may become categorically different in persona and may even grow with dissimilar situations than the cloned because monozygotic twins exhibit differences too. This may result in pronounced stress on the part of the clone and maybe even become incapable of choosing for itself. Similarly, prolonged genetic effects related to cloning may result in additional problems that are possible to imagine. 

The imagination can be established on the basis evolutionary approach that portrays the evolution’s reliance on a recurrent mixing and corresponding of genes to ensure the survivor of the gene pool. Cloning will thus surpass the natural procedure of selecting genes hence impairing the evolution (Holden, 602). From this argument, it is clear that cloning have the possibility of changing the gene pool different from our knowledge. The highest probability is that this change would not be good. This is so because even the technology used in cloning fails at some point a good example being the failure experienced in cloning Dolly.  

Of the two arguments for and against cloning discussed above, the argument for cloning remains the best. As discussed, cloning is applicable in helping the sterile couple to have their progenies through the ordinary and natural manner. Because it is the desire of almost every couple to bear children, cloning is the technology that should be used to fulfill these desires. When it becomes impossible for a couple to bear their children, some become willing to do anything to bear a child. Since the couple would wish to maintain their marriage serenity by, not moving out of wedlock for search of children, cloning becomes their ultimate solution. Also, some infertile couples may become obsessed by the quest of having some children born of themselves and thus become reluctant to adopt some. In such a situation, cloning may be the only solution that would allow them to bear a child or even several children who abide with the genetic configuration of one of the partners. 

Cloning of human beings is a fascinating improvement in technology and awareness. However, the subject raises some ethical issues around cloning of humans. Cloning is logically wrong because we should not attempt to cultivate other techniques of bringing life in the world other than through the natural ways. Strongly asserted, God formed us all, and He is the only giver of life. Human beings are just, but subjects of his laws and must, for this reason, obey Him as well as His natural laws. God’s laws carry with them the nastiest punishment and deals with giving life to a human being and taking life out of them (Vogel, 1316).  

Cloning human beings falls within these laws and thus perpetuating cloning would seem like playing the role of God as the creator of things and human beings (Vogel, 1317). Also, there is an eminent risk of the abuse of this technology by individual who would either afford it or becomes available to them. The most susceptible abusers of the technology are powerful generational leaders such as Hitler, who would use such technology to their advantage. This is so because the technology used to make baby clones is the same that would be used to make an embryo clone in an attempt to create replacement tissues.
