In the modern era, technology has developed to such a certain degree that scientist are able to create new of life. One of them is cloning. The debate whether cloning of animals should be allowed or not seems endless.
Those who agree with animal cloning usually, argue that cells produced from them can be used to stop animals from becoming extinct. They also add that cloning has a purpose to produce high quality of cells.
Many species are becoming rarer. Scientist are concerned if they do not do something to save certain species, these animals will be extinct forever. Fro this reason, researchers have improved cloning technology, so that many rare species can be successfully cloned.
Not everyone is excited about animal cloning. Some people feel that it could have terrible consequences. For example, id dinosaur are cloned, then men could be extinct. It is clear that these ferocious beasts cannot live together with human. In history, these creatures lived several thousand years before men appeared. Can you imagine these giants killing creatures living within the same era and on the same planet with us ?
As a result of this controversy, people still have not got the answer yet for animal cloning. Moreover, some members of the scientific community think that the banning of cloning technology will destroy the creativity of science.
