I have no adequate picture to express how cute I find this, so enjoy chibi Taokaka.

No proper use YET

If they can clone a dog, they may work on cloning people next. If they can perfect it then they can help with organs that people need, but they can't find a match. If the dog did have to go through pain for this discovery, then its terrible, but sometimes there has to be pain, even death, before you can find something that can help tons of people.

They're probably gonna figure out bio-printing organs 2-3 decades from now, possibly even shorter

There's also a great deal of, you know, moral doubts, to be had about cloning humans for organs. That might not bother you, but it's gonna bother a lot of people.

If it is just a clone, used only for body parts, or organs, then I can't exactly feel anything for it, but then again, if its an exact replica I would think that it would be difficult to kind of just use something like that, but some people will do anything to save someone or themselves.

A clone is in every way provable still a human being except some fiddle-diddling went on with the thingamastuff.

You'd have to raise them like a human being, too. Or just treat em like factory animals, but you'd have to make them grow to the age and size they need to be for their organs to be usable.

First, I love how you put that. Second, that sounds similar to what they did on My Sisters Keeper, but she wasn't cloned, she was 'made for parts'.

If they make a clone of you, wouldn't it just be the same as you at whatever age you are at? like, they cloned a 40 year old, he would be exactly the same as the original right? If you had to wait for the clone to grow then it would kind of defeat the purpose of it.

No, it would have to be grown. You can't just magic a clone of someone out of thin air, you basically take their DNA, and replace the DNA of other cells, normally an egg and sperm just after they join so that will then grow into a person with the exact same DNA as the original, a clone.

How would you make a fully grown 40 yr old? Grow all of the different cells yourself then stick them together? That would take as long as letting them grow, and would be much more expensive.

Just saying

I've never looked into cloning before, I don't know much about it.

If they can find a way to make it so you can actually somehow clone someone, and not have to grow them, how would you feel about that? Kind of like a human that was brain dead I guess, that you just used for organs.

I dunno, I'd prefer them to just grow the organs, when you get an actual person cloned you end up with all sorts of moral problems.

As I said, personally, I don't know how i'd react in all honesty, and again, if they could grow the whole human, why not just make the organs you need on demand? It would probably be cheaper anyhow, you wouldn't have to look after a whole person.

#382 - ellenrimbauer (07/20/2013) [-]
Very true, though, they would have to make sure its a match to the person that needs the organ. A lot of amazing things can be done with science, so I'm sure they'll come up with something.

#421 - eddymolly (07/20/2013) [-]
Well if they were to grow the organs themself specifically, they would be a perfect match, so that would be fine really. Much in the same way you would grow the whole person, just grow the single organ. Much less effort.

Yeah, there will be great advancements, there always is
#455 - ellenrimbauer (07/20/2013) [-]
That would make sense to do, and seems like way less work.

Anyway, it was nice talking to you, have a great day.

Wow, I didn't even realize that someone else started commenting on my reply to you. I thumbed everyone up in the discussion still.
#325 - hopskotch (07/20/2013) [-]
I agree with this comment. Although sad that animals get tested on, it's exactly the same as the feels you get when you watch the National Geographic channel and see a cheetah pick off an infant gazelle.

It really is a shame, but it's an ugly world, and the uglier truth is that at the end of the day, it's all about self-preservation. The most primitive instinct one possesses.

More like the owner is strangling him back so he can't stand on all 4 legs.
