Context: Over the last 50 years, scientists have conducted cloning experiments in a wide range of animals using a variety of techniques. It was not until 1996, however, that researchers succeeded in cloning Dolly, the lamb from the udder cell of a 6-year-old sheep. Two years later, researchers in Japan cloned eight calves from a single cow. Besides cattle and sheep, other mammals that have been cloned from somatic cells include: cat, deer, dog, horse, mule, ox, rabbit and rat. In addition, a rhesus monkey has been cloned by embryo splitting. Some people think this is a gospel for the environment because they think people can bring some extinct animals back or protect the animals that are in danger with this technology.
Disruption: Do people have rights to conduct cloning experiments in the end of bettering off the whole society?
Resolution: According to arguments from utilitarianism, people’s manner should be done to maximize the well-being. If the well-being of society enlarges by conducting those experiments such as people bring extinct animals back to benefit the whole environment, those experiments can be considered as moral.
