Cloning is good for mankind.
Debate Rounds (3)
Earth is already extremely overpopulated--Cloning may just worsen this problem, particularly if the technology is overused (which, knowing humans, it will be. We're known for inventing things that should improve life and allowing them to destroy it instead). People and other animals alike breed at an alarming rate, and don't need the help of cloning.
Just because we can do something doesn't mean we should. The process of cloning is a primarily untested technology, and anything that goes wrong would likely be extremely detrimental to mankind. Cloning could affect any number of things in a natural body, and these results are unknown as of yet. Allowing clones into our world would likely cause more problems than it could plausibly solve,
What precisely do you think cloning would improve?
Another aspect is to clone meat for food consumption. For example, if we can clone chicken thigh meat, there will not be any animal sufferings. There will not be any animal abuse in farms. We can then manufacture meats without the expense of killing chickens, cows and pigs.
Now, to your idea of cloned meat: As something is cloned, it is indicated above that some part of it is lost, be it resistance to disease or healthiness. This could take away the natural benefits of meat, and could even cause outbreaks of disease and formerly unknown societal problems.
While I agree with you that in a perfect world cloning could improve lives, the world we live in, full of fallible humans, is bound for destruction if such a practice is adopted.

I think I've made my points, good luck to Pro.
