MORAL AND SOCIAL EVIL IN HUMAN CLONING: A PHILOSOPHICAL EVALUATION

CHUKWUMA JOSEPH NNAEMEKA, ONWE, JERRY N.

Abstract: The ethics of human cloning is a do-or-not issue in the science of cloning and bio-technology. Since the successful cloning of Dolly the sheep, the issue of human cloning has been a controversial agenda. According to the proponents of this development, there is a possibility of creating genetically identical human beings just as that of Dolly the sheep, animals and tissues of living and dead organisms could also be cloned from a single genetic progenitor. Some bio-technologists claim that if human cloning is in place, the issue of childlessness, starvation and premature death would be augmented. Hence, science of cloning advances science of embryonic research. There are some ethicists who insist that the attitude of bio-technology (science of cloning) should be evaluated since it uses human beings as objects of scientific experiments. And human beings are ends in themselves and not a means to an end. Perhaps, the negative implications of science of cloning outweigh its positive implications. Therefore, it is morally and socially reprehensive and evil for human beings to pursue. In an attempt to address this problem, we explored the tenets in cloning, the sanctity of human identity, the law of nature, life and human nature, objective good in cloning and cloning and family structure. In conclusion, we contend that science of cloning should not be allowed in human terrain.
