Rinsurongkawong from Thailand explains three
reasons why he opposes cloning.
are three reasons why I don't think that we are
ready for cloning. First, we don't know exactly
what the consequences of cloning would be. For
example, if scientists cloned a man, they might
know what he would look like, but they wouldn't
know his dominant traits. I want you to imagine
what would happen if scientists cloned another
Hitler or others like him. Do you really think we
would survive, if this became a reality?
Even though cloning may have a lot of
benefits for humans, I think we should
stop cloning because we do not understand
it and can not control all of its
cloning raises many ethical questions. Look back at
the cloned man I presented and ask yourself these
you really think that he would be a
would be responsible for him?"
you think he should have the same rights as we
don't think that we can answer these questions
we don't know exactly what the meaning of life is.
In my opinion, creating life is the duty of nature,
and we must not interfere with that task because we
can not understand the extremely sophisticated
relationships among lives that are defined by
nature. Usually these relationships are extremely
complex. Sometimes, they seem to be untouchable,
and absolutely, they cannot be changed. From my
point of view, we have to look at the natural
environment around us. We will see that an
ecosystem is composed of a lot of kinds of lives,
and each life has its own function within the
system. If we interfere with that, I think it could
lead to our extinction.
cannot answer all of these questions for others,
but I have my own answers, and personally, I
totally disagree with cloning. Even though cloning
may have a lot of benefits for humans, I think we
should stop cloning because we do not understand it
and can not control all of its effects. Maybe in
the future, we will be ready to do it, but that
time has not arrived.
