  • Yes same-sex couples can now have both of their genes put into a child with genetic engineering

    But there are already perfectly good ways to helping the LGBTQ+ community have children: Surrogate, IVF etc. But also if parents who would want to clone a child they once had and no longer have now would be morally incorrect, Especially if you are from the Christian religion. Also, You would never definitely earn a child back, This new child could develop some problems within their body from being genetically engineered this could cause them to die and leave the parents devastated again. Also, This child could look like the one that the parents had before but could be totally different in their characteristics. This, Therefore, Leads to the conclusion that you should not clone your children as you could be totally disappointed and also it would never feel the same again.

  • Unpredictability and identity.

    Not ethical. Being created through cloning can have unpredictable psychological effects. Much like the Marvel character X-23, clones will have to deal with the fact that they are not human, but really a product of science. Also, clones created will be labelled like products and sold to their 'families' or even anyone who might do harm to them or others.

  • Yes, humans are more complex than animals.

    Human cloning is unethical because humans are more complex than animals. They have feelings that need to be addressed when making a copy. Animals have a simpler version of emotion, but humans can form relationships and communicate feelings through words eventually. There is too much room for error when cloning humans and the ramifications are too much.

  • Yes, human cloning is unethical.

    Human cloning is unethical in part because there is no assurance that the process safely can be undertaken. Scientists cannot come close to guaranteeing that the result of a human cloning process would be a physically and mentally stable human being. In addition, the process of cloning a human is unethical because of the potential for it being turned into a system for harvesting organs and other body parts.

  • Human cloning can be used easily to create subjects without free will.

    Creating human clones likely has applications in creating human-like drones or foot soldiers. Creating human beings for these purposes without them being able to exercise free will over their lives seems immoral in a country which is based on beliefs that every person should have the freedom to choose how to live his or her life.

  • It is my dude

    Cuz like it just works like that its pretty lit and i find it pretty dope and it sounds pretty legit to me. Like yo if my mom made me hot that would be nice and i would get hot guys but atm im ugly as hell so like ya.

  • Cloning is not "Frakenstein science"

    I understand the ethical issues with the current process of cloning and until most of the bigger issues are resolved it is not safe to to clone a person now. However, In the long run, I think its not unethical in the sense that most people see. Ive head a majority of arguements comparing cloning to "Frankensteins monster" as if cloning would create a person unnaturally. In truth, Cloning involves interfereing with normal reproduction to create a fertilized egg that would essentially be a genetic copy of a person. Its like copy a document. The copy was, Is, And always will be a peice of paper and treated as such, The only difference is it is imprinted with the same words as another document. As long as the clone is raised and treated like a human being ( as they are still one) then there are no real philosophical dilemas with it.

  • It's completely ethical

    It's not unethical because parents incapable of creating a baby or IVS and even LGBTQ+ couples can create their own baby that's ideal for them. Cloning can help us prevent the spread of disease. Think of all the things it could do to help humans, prolong lives by slowing down ageing and completely getting read of genetic diseases and illnesses that can be spread down the family line. Cancer won't exist and STDs won't exist. We can shape the future of humans so it looks better with more intelligent beings roaming our planet.

  • It is ethical

    Parents with no eggs and sperm can create children that are genetically related.
    Same sex couples can have children without the use of donor sperm or donor eggs. The men would only require a surrogate to carry the clone until birth.
    Parents that have lost a child can have that child returned to them with a clone.
    Endangered animals can be cloned to save the species.

  • Human Cloning is Ethical

    Human cloning should be allowed because of all it could do for humans as a species. We can edit genes to stop cancer and we can stop diseases from spreading. Clones can also be good to stop wars happening in third world countries. We can also make people for certain purposes, those people will be perfect for one specific job and will be able to make labor easier. We can also make poorer countries a lot of money by making clones who are good at something like magic or sports and they can use those clones to busk and advertise products that the country sells

  • No, human cloning is not unethical.

    No, cloning humans in and of itself is not unethical. Creating incomplete beings for the purpose of harvesting organs would be unethical, but cloning individuals gives scientists a chance to strengthen proportions of the population with dominant genes that contain healthy conditions. Cloning could help eliminate the problems that recessive genes can create, such as hemophilia.
