What's your view, back in the 90's a sheep was successfully cloned, i find it odd they chose a sheep but then i'm not into animals in science. (another subject Rolling Eyes )

But now there are scientists who want to clone humans for research. Basically they want to clone human beings and test them to see if they have any memories similar to the person they're originally formed from. And other things like that.

There has also been rumors scientist want to use clones of cancer sufferers to find a way to cure them ( the cancers there are currently no cures for)

What does everyone think?

that's weird. how weird growing up and then seeing the perosn the cell or whatever you were made from came from - like that is exactly what you're going to look like. or am i just talking crap? are they only gonna get cells from foetuses for babies and then kill them? cos then you get the same issues as abortion...? if they're cloning humans and then only making foetuses to solve cancer, i agree with it. is it really a life? cos it's you... its v confusing!

i think if it helps them find a cure for such a huge thing then i guess it's not so bad but then again it seems so weird

i think cloning is wrong because it could lead to overpopulation and extiction of otyher species.

ewwwww omg i just read this Shocked

Bad parents - Did your parents destroy your life? Were they alcoholic, child-beating molesters? Did you never have a chance? Interestingly, human cloning allows you the opportunity to participate in choosing the parents for your clone.

taken from the above website that is just too weird

It's immoral, disturbing, wrong and just plain sick. Why are they ruining God's beautiful creatures? I don't know if we should clone if the population was decreased and we had to clone. I'd jsut have to choose to just do it and have kids, not this cloning crap that's everywhere

If cloning a person for medical research, I think it's fine to do. Just to find out what would happen, I'm not into that.
And for animals.. I read on a family who were about to lose a dog they owned and decided to clone the dog. Which, I think was pointless because I doubt if the dog acts the same as the older one or lives in their hearts as much as the old one.
I suppose it depends on the cloning situation.

i read about that, or something similar. Surely cloning an ill animal would mean the clone would have the illness too and die shortly after anyways. Seems a bit pointless to me

I'm against cloning. I believe the only way a life should be made is through natural causes or IVF. Although I believe that arbortion is ok, you should not create a life like that.
