what readers have said about this issue in
(Issue 4) and in Human
humans is a great idea, especially for the
government. Just imagine cloning an army of
thousands of guys, raising and training them since
their childhood. They would be Super Soldiers above
normality, raised and trained to fight since their
childhood. Religions put a stop to scientifically
reproducing human but they didn't put a stop to
people dying on wars. There would not be any
'broken down in tears' families crying for their
sons that died in the war.
it to us.
from the U.S.
could had a clone, I might hate the clone. Even if
the clone worked instead of me, probably she would
want to play with my friends and family, and then
she wouldn't work instead of me anymore. She would
hate me, and we would fight to get more power. I
don't want to have a clone.
my opinion, cloning is the best way to develop
something such as botany and farming. This is a big
challenge for us to improve modern technology. Why
not ? There are many examples we can find . How
many hundreds and even thousands of animals and
plants have disappeared in this world? If we could
get it back by cloning, it would be miracle ..
Specially for countries which have "farming" as
their main income.
think that cloning should be allowed it would get
some people out of a lot of trouble and sometimes
it's all people need.

To tell you the truth, it is wrong. They're messing
around with God's work. Now don't get me wrong,
cloning the organs can save lives. But just think
how many people or animals they could kill just
trying to get one human or sheep. Didn't they say
that it took over 277 sheep to get Dolly. Dolly
already has arthritis at five years old. That is
really sad. I hope that they don't get too far into
this before something bad happens.
Childers from the U.S.
We think cloning is not good for the humanity
because cloning human it's very
and Cedric from France
I believe that cloning is completely wrong. We do
not need to play the rule of God. By creating human
life we defy that God is our creator and contradict
our beliefs on religion.
Karson from the U.S.
Well it is not really an opinion. I want to know
how many people actually believe in it. Say when
cloning first started was it accepted? Is it
accepted more now than it was when it first
started? Or do you think cloning will really become
a big part of our everyday life? These are just
some of the questions I have...I just need more
info before I can make an accurate inference. Thank
you so much for your time.
from the U.S.
I think it should not be allowed to clone human
beings and it should not be allowed to clone
animals either. When human beings get cloned they
are losing their individuality and it is against
God's will to clone human beings.
Evers from Germany
I don't think that cloning humans is a good idea.
So, when you clone a man or woman, you don't know
which rights he/she should have. It is in question,
too, if a clone will be accepted by society. If
not, there will arise two groups: clones and normal
people, which are made "by nature".
know this situation from Hollywood - one
possibility can be war! But on the other hand,
cloning special people like Einstein can be very
useful for mankind. And to prevent arguments
between clones and "gods children" you just put the
clones scientists into a closed terminal and let
them think there all the day: a think
that is fiction. So cloning just leads to
Krause from Germany
In my opinion we should not start cloning human
beings, because I think there is no need and no
reason to do it. Why do we need duplicates of men
or women? I am sure that nobody is so important for
human life that we have to rebuild him/she. Further
I cannot agree with people, who will clone human
beings to use them as a warehouse. E.g. if they
have problems with their heart or with their lungs,
they will take the clones´ hearts or lungs.
That is wrong. I believe that everybody's life is
designed by nature and we should not interfere with
it. In addition to that, there are no financial
means to develop and to pay for the necessary
"Dee!" Köster from Germany
If I could had a clone, I would be happy because I
could do more things. For example, while my clone
went shopping, I could take a nap or other things.
I would love to have a clone because we could share
work, parties, secrets, friends, and
I am completely disagreed with the statement
"Cloning is not a funny game for a bored scientist
on a rainy Sunday."
research can give an opportunity to a lot of
dying children by bringing into the world new
medical technologies, new pharmacies. Do you
know about stem cells? Those technologies have
fantastic future of recovering people even from
most serious diseases.
want to ask the writer:" Do you have a children?
Can you imagine that your healthy child is died?
In an accident... And you have to make a
decision to stop his heard because the doctor
says to you that he is not able to survive. And
now he is not with you anymore and you can not
do for him anything... What about that parents?
Do you understand that they are seriously ill
after that? Can you imagine their pain? Do you
think that they will be a normal people for the
society? I can tell you. I do not wish you ever
to know what do they fill. It is easier for them
to dye than to live! And for them to have a
clone baby this is not a play. This is the
chance to see that their child's life is not
completely stopped. That it is still going from
the cell of died child. This is not just the
hope in their life. This is the séance in
are healthy woman. I want to ask you:" Try to
imagine that you will never ever have the
possibility to have your own child. What will
you say than? Just try to imagine this? What
will you say to such men or women? Or for them
this is just a play too?"
are pretty young lady. You have everything in
the future. May I ask you:" Try to imagine that
you are not so young and life was not so
successful for some reasons and you are
absolutely alone. You can not find your only one
man. You do not have children. What will you say
can make this list even longer. Science is not just
a play. And it never will be. If people try to do
such a hard job they have a reasons. And people who
have those problems - they pay their own money for
this too. A lot of cloning research organizations
is not Government organizations. But what about the
people who have the same problems but do not have
the money? Just think about it.
know that scientists are not ready to produce human
beings by cloning yet. They should not do it until
they will be sure that the clone will be 100%
normal. But they do have to do those researches for
all of us - to teach us to understand people pain
and help them, to make our society
we will spend the money only on the well-known
technologies we will never have a future.
I don't care much about cloning from a religious
issue, but I do think that biologically it's
potentially a Pandora's Box just waiting to be
opened. This needs to be very closely monitored by
the world governments!
Beddingfield from U.S.
Many people don't like cloning, but in my opinion
cloning is a good way to do research. Scientist do
things like this because they need to fight the
diseases. At this moment many people are sick, but
science gives them hope. this is more important to
M. Pavon from Nicaragua
Cloning is very useful and very important to human
beings. Why am I sure about this? Because many
people around the world are suffering from hunger
and need food to fulfill their needs. Cloning is a
new technology in biology. With cloning, people can
produce a lot more livestock than usual. For
example: we can use female cows to make a new born
as good as the female cow. With this cloning many
people will be free from hunger. We can produce new
livestock faster and faster. Beside this, cloning
can also be useful in doing a new research . For
example: scientists want to find out why rhinos are
becoming extinct. So the scientists try to clone

I think that it's against life because God
is the creator of life. Only he gives life. I don't
think that men should do that. Another thing, when
men play with the natural laws, nature has

I am very much against it because the only one true
maker of this world is God and he is the only one
to create life itself because he wanted a friend to
from the U.S.
O.K. if you think cloning is so acceptable then
answer this. How many times did it take till
scientist got what they finally wanted? how many
sheep died or got destroyed? Who but God has the
right to create or destroy life? How many babies
would die trying to be cloned till they get the
same as before? Why mess with nature things are
going to be what they are and that's it.
