Hey! Thanks for debating with me, Wizardzav! (Sorry for the very, Very late post! )

First, Lets look at what cloning really is.
The definition of cloning is: "replicate (a fragment of DNA placed in an organism) so that there is enough to analyze or use in protein production. "

Now this seems all good at first look. We have cloned animals, Why can't we clone humans?

Well, That comes down to some moral and ethics issues, But I will get to that later.

So lets take a look at cloning in recent history. Dolly the sheep was the very first mammal to ever be cloned using a process called nuclear transfer. Amazing! But then you see that it took 277 unsuccessful embryos to clone the sheep. It was finally successful in 1996. It has been 22 years since this, And technology has definitely advanced. But, That does not mean things can still go wrong.

More times than not, Clones die from organ failure and suffer during their lifetime. This could be similar with human clones, And that would just be straight up cruel to the "human. " Along with suffering, The clones would have to grow up like a normal human, And many of them would never reach adulthood. If-and this is a big if-the clones make it to adulthood, They would have to live with the fact that they are a clone, Not real, And their soul purpose is to entertain the real humans brains. That could lead to severe depression, Along with the suffering they have already endured.
