Capstone Papers-Social justice principles
In the novel Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, children are raised in a boarding school to become organ donors for society. The children eventually find out they are genetic clones created for the expressed purpose of providing another individual backup organs to prolong that individual’s life.
Are cloned life forms the same as the original of the copy?
Do they have the same rights and privileges of individuality if they are genetically identical to someone else?
How might our own history with copied things influence our perceptions and interactions with clones?
