I don’t disagree with the actual act of cloning a human. I just don’t know if I trust people enough to use it responisbly. It’s like a short story I read called the jigsaw man. I can’t remember who wrote it, but the basic plot is that anyone who commits minor crimes (traffic violations) is put to death and their organs are harvested to make the majority of the nation essentially immortal. I can sort of see something like this happening with clones in my own paranoid sort of way. And it would be wrong because of the whole seperate personhood thing. Anyway, sorry to ramble.
