Should Cloning be Legalized?
Debate Rounds (3)
Did you know that Dolly, the world"s first cloned sheep, was discarded about 200 times before one even survived? Did you know that more than 98% of clones are either malformed, stillborn, or die immediately after birth? Did you know that, although they appear normal, most clones have congenital defects such as premature aging?
Many cloned animals also suffer from large baby syndrome. In this condition, the fetus grows double its normal size. This syndrome sometimes results in the death of the mother. Cloning is a cruel and unsafe experiment, and any attempt at human cloning would constitute an unethical experimentation upon the unborn child. And, accroding to Dr. Carmel Shalev (Israel) if a child was cloned from a person who was alive for a long time and then died, they would have expectations to live up to. They would probably live a very stressful life and might suffer from emotional problems, knowing that they were not an individual, but a clone. That's why cloning should completely banned.

Reasons for voting decision: This is a very hard topic. Cloning is playing God and can be cruel, yet it could bring us many scientific breakthroughs to help people. I will just vote based on conduct and grammar.
