Cloning opens many doors of opportunities in the agricultural aspect ofthe United States of America. It has already been a major factor in saving thelives of many humans. I feel the society as a whole can not and should notdegrade this scientifical finding. I feel that human cloning should not be doneand that this subject raises too many ethical questions. I would like to focuson an agricultural aspect if I may.
People raised hell when animal parts wereput into humans to save lives and today it is an accepted part of medicinalscience. I feel that cloning in an agricultural and medicinal aspect willbecome the same as transplanted animal parts. It will go through much debate,but ten years from now it will be accepted scientifically, socially, and morally.
In an article in Newsweek called A Cloned Chop, Anyone? They take a somewhatneutral, but also somewhat negative viewpoint of cloning in an agricultural andmedicinal sense. They admit some good aspects of this genetic engineering, butthey still seem pessimistic of the future of cloning in animals excluding humans.
The first thing the article states is the Wall Street opportunities forthe biotech field. Instead of phone calls from eager investors only phone callsfrom reporters were coming in asking about this market. I feel that now wouldbe a great time to invest in biotechnical companies specializing in agriculturaland medicinal cloning. This article says nothing about the great potentials oflong term investment. Long term investment especially in the medicinal field isincredibly profitable.Just as in other controversial investing opportunities Ifeel that investors will find they could have made a lot of money if theyinvested in this area.
Ten to fifteen years from now this agricultural cloningwill be a commonly routine thing and price wars will begin for the productsproduced by them which means many great investment opportunities will beavailable. But one must remember that Wall Street is extremely short terminvesting so this is a good explanation for not many investors being interestedin this because it is still many years before tangible and profitable productsare made from cloning.
The article goes on to say the Scottish scientists have a lot of goodideas, but they seem to be only a sci-fi adventure. Once again I disagree.
