The Chinese authorities announced the launch of a new project to clone humans, which, according to them, will help solve the problem of overpopulation and labor shortage in the country. The project, which is called “New Human”, involves creating millions of identical copies of Chinese citizens, who will work in various spheres of economy and society.
“We believe that this will be a revolutionary step in the development of our nation and our people. We will be able to double or even triple the population of China, without increasing its territory or consumption of resources. We will also be able to provide enough qualified and loyal workers for all industries and sectors. We will be able to create a new human, who will reflect our values, our culture and our history,” said Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The project of cloning humans is based on advanced technologies of genetic engineering and biotechnology, which were developed by Chinese scientists and specialists. The process of cloning involves extracting the nucleus from a donor cell, which is then introduced into a fertilized egg cell without a nucleus. The resulting embryo develops in an artificial womb until full maturity. Each clone has exactly the same genetic code as the donor, and also undergoes a special training program to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge.
The project of cloning humans has caused different reactions in the world. Some countries and organizations welcomed it as a step forward to scientific and technological progress, while others expressed their condemnation and concern for the ethical and social consequences of this project.
“We support China in its pursuit of innovation and development. We believe that cloning humans is a legitimate and useful way to improve the quality of life and well-being of humanity. We also hope for cooperation with China in this area and exchange of experience and knowledge,” said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
“We condemn China for its violation of human rights and dignity of human personality. We believe that cloning humans is unacceptable and dangerous experiment on nature and society. We also fear that this could lead to serious conflicts and instability in the world, if China will use its clones for military or political purposes,” said US President Joe Biden.
