Am not debating this topic, I just want an opinion? I want to know your perspective?

I thank my opponent for the debate and the readers for another opportunity.

As my opponent has quoted that she is not debating the topic, the remainder of this debate defaults to Con.

I do not believe that scientists should be allowed to clone humans. That is my opinion. I feel that if this were allowed, some ethics and morals may be crossed. That is my perspective.

Thank you for the debate. I heavily urge a Con vote.

Even though am not debating this topic, am not disagreeing with you but I think that cloning would help people, for example, if someone died than the clone would be there, they wouldn't have to morn over the dead. I think they should be allowed because they could utalize the clones to run test on them and find cures, so if the clone died the real person would still be present. For example if the original wanted a surgery, they would do it on the clone first and see how it proceeds. Also, new discoveries would be made.

This is my opinion! No, I have no resources am just stating my opinion, thank you very much!

I thank my opponent for the response.

As my opponent still does not want to debate the resolution, this debate defaults to Con.

However, I must mention that Pro's reasoning for supporting human cloning is illogical. If humans were to be cloned in the way my opponent suggested, we would have millions of extra "people" out and about. Cloning humans for the sole purpose of wanting to "bring them back from death" is unethical and ridiculous. Everything has to die. Why go against nature?

Once again, my opponent has conceded the debate by choosing not to debate. Thank you.

People aren't God that's the negative about cloning but people can utilize clones for test purposes. There are a lot of diseases out there that they haven't found a cure on and they need humans to test on, so in my opinion they should use clones as lab rats. Even though that sounds inhuman, and cruel, things happen, and we need results and FAST!

I thank my opponent for her response.

Once again, I would like to mention that my opponent has conceded the debate by choosing not to debate the topic and rather giving an opinion on the matter without supple evidence.

In my opponent's argument, she did not give any proof or evidence as to how clones would legitimately better the process of finding cures for diseases. It is unethical and possibly devastating to create human clones for the sole purpose of using them as lab rates.

I thank my opponent and the readers for another opportunity. I heavily urge a Con vote, for my opponent chose not to actually debate the topic and did not give any evidence to support her side. Thank you.

Human cloning will never be ethical and therefore will never be done. I've never done a debate before but if someone would like to challenge me, I'd love to participate in my first debate after my finals!

Human cloning: It's not open to debate, It's just a matter of when and then it will be shoved down our throats in the name of science and the good for all. As predictable as the sun coming up in the morning.

I did what my opponent wanted me to do.

I have a couple questions for you, ReganFan:

How old are you?
Are you really a Christian?
Do you have self-control?
Do you have anger management problems?
Do you plan on leaving this site?

I hope your responses would be: 10, No, No, Yes, and YES. Thank you.

If you're not debating the topic, you should put it on the fourms.
