Why must you be so cruel? What did grammar and spelling ever do to you?

Cloning single body parts and organs however should be allowed, sure.

I definitely agree...though you have to watch out for those Conservative Christians/Conservative Republicans..

Yes. It should. Cloning is already possible, and can help with solving many issues and sicknesses by allowing scientists to skip the animal testing phase and skip right to the part where they see if it works on us. Safety testing could also be done using this. The only problem, moral decency. There are people who think this wrong, where personally I don't mind too much(don't get me wrong, I still do care, no matter how little). However, it is known that clones live a significantly shorter lifespans, therefore, they are not the same as us and will probably live only a few years.

because their life span is shorter it doesn't make them human?
1st any evidence for this? 2nd how are they not human when they do,feel and look like humans? in the end it is your clone.
if i was a clone and they are going to experiment on my i rather kill myself. it's morally of the hook

They should have the exact same rights as any other human... if they existed. But we all know there will be issues about them, and I still see no reason why we should even start to clone full humans. So, why should we even start all that potential fuss?

They're still as much human as you and me, and yes, there will be moral issues. They have feelings too, will be aware of what's happening, and so there are just as much reasons not to use them as guinea pigs than to use your neighbour for that.

If you want to solve the testing issues, then start making propaganda for legalizing testing on volunteers. Still a whole load of moral issues tied to that, but less than your proposition.

When's the last time you came across something citing the lifespans of human clones? And regardless of their lifespans, or in fact how little you care, I fail to understand how on earth you're justifying, what is essentially the use of human beings as lab rats.

The same reason why people fuss over the abortions of non-sentient blastocysts!

Oh wait. Uh oh.

Err... nope. Abortion has medical implications; it's an operation done for a reason. What good does cloning full humans do?

One thing I just remembered is, if I'm not mistaken, the idea of cloning a Neanderthal, for scientific purpose of course. What do you think? Is it ok or should we not go past the cloning of mammoths? After all we don't know just what a Neanderthal would be aware of etc. Assuming it was possible, naturally.

in the 1st 9 weeks just medicine does it. this is the time most abortions happen.

i still think it would explorer the world at 1st like a baby. because the brain didn't make any connections yet.
as for cloning a neaderthal i guess it would become a very hairy an ugly retard. because it's brain is smaller then our size.
