    Human clones could be an extremely valuable resource. They would be highly expendable if the science were studied more. Clones would be a great source of free labor, especially if an athlete was cloned. Cloned human flesh could be sold for high prices as an alternative to cannibalism. WE could use clones as entertainment on television, watching them fight, or whatever. Finally, clones could be used for organ transplants, since there are currently few avaliable organs (most people are using theirs.) What do you think?

    You think someone is suddenly not human because they are a genetic copy of another? I suppose every set of identical twins should be separated and one should be forced into slavery?

    I dont want anyone enslaved. No matter how you decide to procreate them.

    I think most people would have some ethical objections.

    Since only the DNA of one person would be needed, cloning reduces individuality because the clone is an identical copy. Also it can lead to a lot of ethical as well practical problems such as it's illegal. It's easy to see how the process could get out of control and be used in ways that would be considered very unacceptable to society. But most of all it would take the human race down a very unpredictable path, that few would want to travel.
