I saw a documentary on cloning and what they could do with ti so i decided to make this thread (no poll)

Do you think cloning humans would be a smart choice?
Makign a super-race or having deformed kids

Personally im undecided, if cloning is used to recreat brilliant people or to help married couples where one of them is steril, but not to create a superrace

What are your comments on cloning humans?

I dont think its ethical to clone a whole human and I dont think scientists would ever consider it.

Cloning human organs for transplant however, is a good idea, and you dont need a whole human for that, you grow individual organs in the lab.
Sat in a lab, curing diseases. They actually LET me play with chemicals!

If it is for the benefit of humanity, then we should have it.

Anyway, it would be mildly amusing having a clone of myself

I dont like the whole super race idea, but I dont think it's unethical. As long as theres someone to be the childs perant, and he/she isn't just a experiment

Only untill the whole series of events enters into a depressing inevitability where the clone rebels and you realise that the making of a clone was a bad idea and somehow try to get rid of it

+1, I think organ cloning is a wonderful practice that could save countless lives.

However, cloning an entire human being for any reason is probably not a good idea. Harvesting their organs is unethical and cloning them simply for the hell of it is a superfluous use of science and funds.

Cloning whole people = wrong.

Cloning seperate organs for people of specific blood type, weight, etc = right.

One is beneficial, one is just a dumb fantasy some people have.

Cloning humans would lead to so many problems, I'm totally against it.
But if it was possible to clone body parts without cloning the person, I'd be for it.

'Bring brilliant people back to life'...hmmm, you would have to recreate their exact environments to bring about their 'brilliant' attributes, and what use would another Einstein under those conditions matter? They'd just bring about the same theories etc as they had. So that wouldn't work.

Only acceptable and practical uses of cloning would be for harvesting stem cells and cloned tissues for organ transplant (overcomes possibility of organ rejection and renders immunosupressors obsolete) and for research into disease.

EDIT:

This is where many people have problems. Cloning to harvest stem cells for such a purpose with all but a few methods destroys the embryo (or rather the morula or the blastocyst stage of embyonic development), and people think this destroys a conscious being...*sigh*

afterward i thought about it and was like "wow, i just jerked off to a chubby girl sucking off a horse. i'm disgusting".

super race... Sounds like WOII...
Though this is my stuff (I'm studying bio-engineering) so I feel kinda obliged to answer...
Cloning is only done with an eye on gaining health and having better life quality. Cloning ppl and letting them clones walk around is a pretty sick thought I think. The ethical stuff surrounding it is huge and the problem would be very undiscussable. It would probabely tear apart entire nations and international alliances (because the possible ideas about the clones can be so different, and religion would play a major part in the discussion).

i dont give a **** about ethics. this isnt a matter of ethics, its a matter of common sense. i mean, we're going to get overcrowded within a matter of time as it is, right? how would making more people fix that?

It may not be conscious but it is human, if left in it's current environment it will develop just like anyone else. It doesn't matter if this little sac of cells has feelings and emotions or even a conscious, it should receive basic human rights seeing as it is really a basic human.
