However, is it really an option that should be considered as a way to extend human life? There are a number of negatives involved with reproductive cloning. According to udemy.com, “95% of animal cloning has ended in failure due to genetic defects, and cloning is considered unsafe because of it” (Quinonez).

In the book Victor Frankenstein created a monster that he later regretted creating him. Many believe that cloning is against God’s wishes because the clones would be created by man.
