Possible cloning of people in the future. Ethical and moral aspects

The modern person, when talking about cloning, most often imagines this process through numerous feature films that have formed a one-sided and largely incorrect understanding of the very essence of cloning. If we take a purely scientific approach, then cloning people is a very possible phenomenon that we can face in the very near future, and there is nothing wrong with that. In no case should you imagine the army of clones that are trying to capture and enslave the rest of humanity, because this is just science fiction, which has nothing to do with the real world.

For a correct understanding of the issue, one should first of all say that cloning is a certain way of multiplying living cells, to which a person acts to obtain a concrete result. Concerning the person, one should immediately identify an important feature that can help modern people look at this process from a different point of view.

In the world, scientists have repeatedly cloned animals, the first of which was the famous Dolly lamb, which was artificially bred in 1996. Success in this field led scientists to go further in their experiments, after which several more different animals were cloned.

Cloning people in all countries is officially prohibited at the state level. However, despite the same biological structure of man and animal, there is a fundamental difference between them that a person is a reasonable biological species that can act, reason, draw conclusions and make independent decisions based on the knowledge that he possesses. As for any animal, it does not have this, and therefore the cloning of animals does not practically differ from the usual process of nucleation, gestation and its further life.

In any case, a certain type of animal will correspond to its species, regardless of the circumstances of its bearing and feeding. An example of this is the fact that even if the chicken is sitting out a duck egg, the duckling that is born will still sound duck sounds. If the young squirrel feeds the cat, the squirrel will not miaow, and still it will never exchange the nut for milk. As for the human being, the surrounding space directly affects its development. The fact is that the social conditions in which a person grows will directly depend on the level of physical, moral, intellectual and psychological development. Examples of kidnapping of babies by monkeys in the Asian countries testify that such a person will never be able to adapt in the human environment, but will forever belong to the animal world.

That is why the cloning of people, which sooner or later will occur, should not be a tragedy on the part of ethical education and cultural traditions. A clone will never be a complete copy of a person as a person, but rather a certain "frame" that can grow quite different with different tastes and looks from the real person. Moreover, today scientists on the basis of scientific developments prove that human cloning, even at the physical level, does not give 100% confidence that such a clone will genetically develop in accordance with its prototype. Even if they are placed in exactly the same conditions of existence, the clone can have significant differences in weight, height, fullness and even in its complexion. This gives scientists strong evidence that there is nothing wrong with cloning, and that as a son can be like his father, a clone can only have a relative similarity to its genetic origin.

Thus, it can be said that, despite some controversial points put forward by priests, culturologists and psychologists, in general, cloning people can not do much harm to mankind, since they will be the same people, no different from ordinary ones. As for the further coexistence of such species, only the future can show here the correctness or fallacy of many of the claims of today's scientists.
