Comment on the following statement:
| Today some scientists claim that cloning experiments should not be subject to government scrutiny. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that cloning experiments should be up to scientists to manage, whereas others say that it is purely a government concern.
I think that cloning must be under government’s control. First of all, it is difficult to predict the consequences of such experiments. If it gets out of control it might cause bad things like horrible diseases, sufferings of cloned animals or people and so on. Second, we should figure out the moral side of this process first. For example, are people that would come from these experiments real humans?
At the same time there are people who say that scientists have to get more freedom. They have a right to decide what is moral and what is not. If they were not controlled by government, they would make serious progress in this field.
In my opinion these people have a point. If scientists were in charge they would make much more progress. However, as I was saying, there are a lot of aspects of these experiments that are beyond scientists’ competence.
In conclusion, I would like to say that this idea has to be fully discussed. It is one field that does not have an obvious answer and contains many important and debatable aspects of our life that need to be thoroughly investigated since a wrong decision can lead to serious consequences.
