It isn't biblical and isn't how it is supposed to be. Only God should create life. Granted, it would be awesome, and it would help military wise. But unemployment would skyrocket. Clones may take over. They would be mistreated. They would be just"a copy" of a real person.

Hello, as we all know cloning is something that has caused controversy because of religious backgrounds and even some people being against it. However you simply stating it's wrong because it isn't biblical is as flawed an argument as any as there are plenty of other religions one being Buddhists who believe in preserving lives which cloning can do in a sense as we can preserve someone's embodiment through this clone. I'm stating this only because it's a scientific debate but using 'Only God should create life' just isn't valid as anyone could argue humans decide when they want to give life to a baby or breed dogs for pets etc. These clones simply must be considered human if we are talking about cloning humans I assume since you talk about the military and as such they should be given a choice whether they want to join the military or not. Now stating unemployment would skyrocket, would only be present if it was some sort of mass production cloning business but this wouldn't be the case as it would be needless and predictable to cause problems. Saying clones may take over is just like targeting a certain race or religion and saying they may take over and is just plain racist. And of course they may be mistreated but let's just remember that the world is a harsh place as it is and if anyone is cloned specifically it is because they wished upon it themselves or family members wish for it as it would be too unethical to clone someone without permission. You stating a clone is just a copy could be like saying a twin is like a copy, does that mean we should kill one of them, of course not I fail to see how having two versions of a person both with their own capabilities and choices can possibly be a problem in this sense.

Cloning worked for the Republic. Kamino was a pretty cool place to grow up as a kid I would imagine.
