Right now Dr. Prentice, my colleague who is Senior Fellow for Lifestyle Sciences at Loved ones Investigation Council, and Dr. Andy Harris (R-MD), who has sponsored the Human Cloning Prohibition Act of 2012 and has been an energetic voice in bioethics discussions on Capitol Hill, presented a lecture on human cloning.
In the lecture, Dr. Prentice discussed the scientific method of cloning and its prevalence, the current reports and benefits offered, the timeline of human cloning, its ethics (or deficiency thereof), and legislative proposals to ban human cloning.
In the query and reply session with Dr. Harris, what struck me the most was his description of the genetically total human currently being at all levels of growth: “When you had been 1 mobile, you have been precise as you are nowadays. We have a whole lot far more cells now, but we also have a whole lot far more cells now than we did when we had been one calendar year old.” Were we any considerably less human at one yr previous than now? No. Had been we any much less human as a one celled human than we are now? No. It is mysterious and miraculous that we are the same genetically total human beings at 1 mobile development as we are as a complete-fledged adult.
We need to do what we can to move the Human Cloning Prohibition Act and comparable steps to protect the littlest of people, even 1-celled humans, from the harmful and careless forces of researchers and laboratories that do not revere and safeguard the sanctity of all human life.
