I do not approve it for some moral reasons.

While we may have the innovation to accomplish something, we don't really have the ethical order to do that something. Consequently, we should hold to some essential truth standards.

What makes cloning immoral?

We must always remember with what, or rather with whom, we are dealing when we speak of reproduction and that's a living thing. Any living thing being must be respected from the moment of conception, the very first instance of existence.

Cloning for medical purposes has the potential to benefit people. They use animals to find a cure for diseases and we would all benefit from it in the long run.

Some researchers are looking at cloning as a way to create stem cells that are genetically identical to an individual. These cells could then be used for medical purposes, possibly even for growing whole organs. Stem cells cloned from someone with a disease could be grown in culture and studied to help researchers understand the disease and develop treatments.

Cloning creates stem cells that build, maintain, and repair the body. Because these are processes that stem cells do naturally, they can be manipulated to repair damaged or diseased organs and tissues.

I've always wondered if they could clone dinosaurs just like in Jurassic Park. It's extremely unlikely that dinosaur DNA could survive undamaged for such a long time but they could clone other species to avoid extinction.

I think cloning is unethical. It gives people the privilege of playing God which shouldn't be the case.

They've successfully cloned an ewe and there's ax experiment to clone the wooly mammoth. I'm pretty excited to see how it turns out.

If you really wanted to, and if you had enough money, you could clone your beloved family cat. At least one biotechnology company in the United States has offered cat cloning services for the privileged and bereaved.

Programs are underway to clone agricultural animals, such as cattle and pigs, that are efficient producers of high-quality milk or meat.

I don't see why cloning would be such an issue. It all depends on what they clone. Animals are a non-issue for me because they do serve useful purposes.

Farm animals such as cows, sheep, and goats are being genetically engineered to produce drugs or proteins that are useful in medicine.

The prospect of cloning humans is highly controversial, and it raises a number of ethical, legal, and social challenges that need to be considered. For me, I don't we should be cloning humans at all.

I think it is. It oversteps the boundaries of creation. God has the right to create things and not humans.

The vast majority of scientists and lawmakers view human reproductive cloning for the purpose of making a human baby immoral. Supporters see it as a possible solution to infertility problems.

I think human cloning is immoral. Science can experiment on lower life forms but a human is way too much. Science should draw the line somewhere too.

Cloning does have its pros and cons but I'm fine with it. If it can lead to more discoveries and more advancement in genetics and medicine then why not?

For me, I see cloning as an advancement of science. It's beneficial for all of us. As long as there are boundaries I don't see anything wrong with cloning.
