There are good reasons to be cloned and then there are bad reasons. In this article they give both examples. For pros, if organs can be cloned then when someone needs a replacement then can get a clone from either their clone or someone else’s. Cloning can also help make a person the way you want it to be, or a man-made living being!

Cloning can also help us identify the persons genes and use the clones for science without having to test the real person. They can use clone for the benefit of keeping a society healthy, by testing on the clone. If we could clone, we could clone extinct animals and animals we need for food.

In the article it states that cloning can help with alternating plant and animal DNA. We will be able to create humans with certain qualities and with particular desirable traits.

The bad thing about cloning is we would be messing with the diversity of genes. When we lessen the diversity of genes, we weaken our ability to adapt. Cloning might cost a lot of money to happen.

Cloning will make mankind not a unique thing, it can be done and redone and there will be no need for reproducing. Cloning is not a certain thing, scientists cannot guarantee it will work and what kind of risks will be involved. Will cloning be against God’s will? Will the clone of someone be the exact same as the person who was cloned? Will the person get hurt or seriously injured during the procedure of cloning? What if cloning organs welcome malpractices in society. None of these questions can be answered because no one has been cloned before.
