Human Cloning could be very helpful to our society,it helps prevent and abolish an abundant amount of diseases,you can clone healthy human tissue and replace the unhealthy tissue in a sickly persons body with the cloned tissue to completely abolish many diseases including,Cancer,liver faliure,kidney failure,leukemia,spinal chord injuries,and genetic diseases ,human cloning also help with infertility issues if a couple is unable to give birth because of medical reasons doctors can take healthy tissue from the couple to create a child with the same genes as there parents,and technically the child is biologically there's it could also help with scientific research.

I accept my opponent's challenge and look forward to an interesting debate.

First of all, I would like my opponent to clarify the following:

1) What areas of human cloning are we talking about? Are we discussing solely reproductive cloning? Therapeutic cloning? Or both?
2) Are we debating whether or not cloning should be legal? Whether it is or isn't morally correct? Please specify what exactly we are debating about in the next round?

I look forward to my opponent's response.

As Cliff asked also to add there is a MAJOR difference between cloning/creating new body parts than a whole person with mind and all.

To clarify are you advocating the cloning of a person - or simply duplication of tissue/organs?
