Does cloning mammals require the killing of a human embryo?
An embryo actually doesnt have all the charecteristics of life, an embryo is just the female gamete or sex cell. One cell. And if you said that using an embryo is murder or killing then men are committing murder every time they masturbate because the sperm too is only one cell.
They only form a "life" when the embryo and one sperm cell fuse together at conception and then its called a zygote not an embryo.
You cant really be doing anything bad by using embryo cells for research, its like using any other body cell...like if you got a cut an accidently lost a tiny clump of skin would you consider that "killing"? Lol...
An embryo is not the female gamete, the female gamete is an oocyte. An embryo is a fertilised egg that has undergone gastrulation.
No, cloning does not involve killing embryos, you just need to get genetic information from a donor source (in deers the stemcells in the antlers are brilliant for this)
But not all mammals are humans, so the answer is no, human embryos have nothing to do with cloning of (other) mammals.
Human embryos aren't used in mammal cloning, so why would they have a need to kill them?
Well humans are mammals...
