Cloning is the exact replication of a single individual gene or a part of a single individual gene achieved with the use of specialized DNA technology. This paper examines how cloning has an equal number of benefits and advantages as it has its failures and defects and disadvantages. It contends that it is up to the experts to decide whether the technology of cloning can be actually used to produce another human being and whether this bodes well for the entire human race. It also debates whether it is indeed safe to interfere with the ways of Nature and how cloning still needs a lot more research and experimentation before it can actually be used to propagate the human race.

From the Paper:

"When Dolly was created, in the year 1997, there was a worldwide interest and concern and also a certain amount of controversy, as only expected. The very possibility that cloning could be applied to human beings raised quite a few eyebrows and the scientific and ethical considerations behind such an eventuality became major issues that took up a lot of time and energy. In fact, when the sheep that was cloned actually lived, it was termed as the breakthrough of 1997, and raised numerous questions as to what exactly 'cloning' is, and how it can be done. The three types of cloning as stated earlier, are 'recombinant DNA technology', 'reproductive cloning', and 'therapeutic cloning'."
