In the past few years, Scientists have cloned various species such as sheep, cats, and dogs. Now do you think scientists should clone humans? Yes? No?

In the name of science, yes. In the name of ethics, no.

I support it. The value of human clones are numerous.

Though I dont think the UN and their "Human rights" maniacs would ever approve of it.

Not whole humans, just body parts, like organs and such.

I'd be in favor of cloning specific human body parts. I just KNOW my liver is going to fail from alcohol abuse eventually.

They should definitely clone chocolate moose. They'll be endangered soon if we keep eating them in cakes. Seriously though, no. They should just work on cloning organs and the like for transplants.

I've never understand what human rights it is violating if the person is willing to do it and the clone is treated fairly.

I don't see the purpose of it, it isn't the same person as the original, sure it is an exact copy but not the same guy, it would never be the same, all the experiences would be different.

I guess my idea of human cloning is for harvesting purposes or testing purposes to tailor make treatments specifically for your physiology. If having a non-censored Internet is considered a "human right" you can be sure that cloning humans for medical purposes would definitely be a no-no

I think harvesting cloned organs is a great idea, but why would anybody want a full human clone?

I think as long as you clone a full human, they need to have all the rights of a human. If that's done, then that's fine.

But maybe wouldn't be the same as you, our experiences are part of what we are, if he doesn't live a similar life to yours he would probably be different.

No, I think we should continue research to get to the point where we're "close", in case of a dire worldwide need arises. And that's a maybe. But we should not do it as a practice.

No, but only because (last I heard) cloned animals tend to have serious health problems. Creating a child knowing that they're going to have those kinds of problems seems sort of unfair, in my opinion.

However, assuming that the technology advances enough for clones to live a perfectly healthy life, then why not make clones? I don't see it as being all that different than other reproductive technologies.

Currently, no. Under (extremely) different circumstances, then perhaps.

EDIT: Unless we're eventually able to use it as a way for couples who can't have children to make a baby. Assuming of course we work out all the "kinks" first.

yes. For those of you that say that the world is overcrowded; clones don't have to be mass produced. Only a few may be made at first when the technology is new.

No. We don't need that type of knowledge falling into the wrong hands. If some lunatic can get his hands on it, that could be bad. And the Earth is crowded enough as it is. We don't need to feel it up even more with things that wasn't brought into this world naturally...

Now THIS, I would support. But the problem would be the cost of the body part would most likely be exorbitant. So most likely, only the rich, as usual, would be able to actually get benefits of the operation...

I don't think overcrowding would be an issue, as it would cost billions to create just one clone. They wouldn't run a local boutique were you can go and clone yourself for lulz

The scientific advantages of cloning certain body parts are infinite, but as with every advancement, it will take a few decades to get over the ethical issues

I'm in favour of cloning specific parts/organs. There was a documentary on a while back, and some scientists showed off a beating heart, made entirely in the lab from stem cells and chemicals.

It was facinating.

Cloning full humans movie-style? Nah

HAHA:lol: Was this amied at him or just Cure fans in general? EDIT: Meant to put the qoute of the guy up a few posts about annoying Cure fans.

Also, I don't support it because there is no use for it, except for slave labor things like that, or a Moon type situation, but then of course I don't support it. Cloning organs could have a good use though...

I don't really see the point of cloning people, there are plenty enough as it is, it also kind of goes against the whole idea of natural selection, flooding the gene pool kind of seems like cheating.

Sure, I don't see anything wrong with the mere act of cloning a human, the problem would be how the clone was treated and what he was used for. It doesn't matter if he was man-made or not, a clone is still human.

YES. Just for once, just this once, let the mad scientist WIN! The technology should be but completely understood, the uses will be varied beyond need, it's a win win. And while we're here, human rights for everyone!

My biology class is currently talking about this. The intelligent people in the class have come with this conclusion: use human dna to grow organs, don't clone full blown humans. Problem solved.

I'm for it. I see no practical reason for voluntarily limiting humanity to only one Einstein or Tesla.
