Movie Analysis - The Conundrum With Cloning

733 words, 3 pages

Intro Sample...


Imagine if science discovered a way to extend the average life span of humans and to replace any broken organs and to have a pain free child birth. Such an extraordinary breakthrough must come at an extraordinary price that is much more than just money. It turns out that behind the scenes scientists are creating human clones that act, feel and live like normal human beings. The only way that this breakthrough is possible is to take whatever is needed from the clones and use it for the humans, but is this an ethical act? In the movie, The Island, a science fiction-action film directed by Michael Bay, it clearly portrays what it would be like to cure any human aliment by using human clones. This movie demonstrates how the clones live a... View More »

Another thing that comes to mind is ethics, is this right or wrong. There are debates going on about whether using human clones is an ethical thing to do or not. The argument, like from Dr. Merrick’s point of view is that the clones can be used for organs or to be surrogates. This could increase the average human life span and cure any aliment, they are not truly humans so it does not matter whether they die or not. The counter argument, like from Lincoln Six Echo’s point of view is that clones still are conscious, act, feel, behave and think like normal human beings so they deserve a chance at life just like any other human does. It is not fair to create someone, clone or not, just use them for their own gain. Humans have a free-will, so why can’t clones have a free-will also.

Overall, it is still not clear whether or not creating human clones is an ethical act. So far, there are no human clones or tests today, but that may change in the future. As science advances and the rich and the powerful want to live longer, human cloning seems like less of a bad thing. Even if it means having the clones live a predestined life just to harvest their organs, the world may come to that one day if it is possible. As for me, I thought the movie was great. It shows how miserable the clones lives are and how they are treated unfairly. I am against human cloning, or any cloning for that matter because according to my ethics, it is still wrong. ...

    In Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Slaughterhouse-Five , the englishmen stand out as “clean and enthusiastic and decent and strong” (Vonnegut 119). They exhibit every romantic quality possibly derived from the brave men sent off to defend their country from villainy, and are even the subject of adoration for the nazis who run their prison. It would be easy to mistakenly say that these men give war a glorious image. However, they actually mock it. They stand out from every other character not only for being the epitome of strength and honor, but also for being “among the first English-speaki

    Awakenings - Honors Human Anatomy And Physiology

    370 words, 2 pages

    The movie “Awakenings” takes place mostly in a chronic hospital. In this hospital, as a new doctor, Doctor Sayer witnesses how all of the patients are being treated. What Doctor Sayer sees is neglect in giving the patients care to the best of the staff’s ability. As a CNA, we are taught to take care of a person as a whole, meaning physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and everything in between. The staff at this chronic hospital only took care of their patients to the point where their job is finished, not giving quality care. In the movie, it is extremely obvious how the patient

    American Identity In “Dear John Wayne” And “A Supermarket In California”

    1300 words, 6 pages

    Twentieth century authors such as Louise Erdrich and Allen Ginsberg use their skills in writing to challenge the dominant narrative of American-ness and American identity. Both authors point out the illusion that has been created of America and how this illusion was actually made from those who lead the culture. Those who fell within the margins of an ideal American constructed the dominant discourse of the country at this time. Erdrich and Ginsberg, however, discuss the issue of how America depicts itself – the “America” that exists for some does not exist for others – specifically those who

    Women As Equal

    1471 words, 6 pages

    Although centuries have passed since the Victorian Era, women are still seen as lesser than men despite the fact that both genders essentially perform the same functions. In Emily Martin’s “The Egg and the Sperm: How Science has Constructed a Romance Based on Stereotypical Male-Female Roles,” she delves into this inequality and its impact on the female condition. On a biological scale, this article argues that women perform the same function as men but are treated as subordinate. This argument can be seen in a more physical sense in ways that women are deemed lesser than men in every sense, ec

    The Motel Was Old

    309 words, 2 pages

    Upon entry of the motel, I instantly regretted my decision of trying to pay less. I flip the switch to light up the dark room, but I switched on this dim, rusty lamp that I could have sworn was from the seventies. I walk into the room to do an inspection, and boy were the comments on the motel’s website accurate. I instantly notice the cigarette-smelling, gray walls, and I was glad I didn’t take off my shoes as I walked in because under my brand new Nike shoes was a very sticky, muddy carpet that I feel was not cleaned in a decade. I turn on the fan because of heat-wave outside, but its fastes
