Making a clone is not making an Alien.

Cloning someone is not excluding them from society and making another race, its like having a child and they will not clone every single person in the world, for those against commenting that the world population will increase and their will be a demand of water and so on. World population is increasing everyday because of birth and cloning is not so different from that. World population will be at its same rate because when you clone they start out as a baby like you did and they will be treated as a baby (as a human). They will grow to be a teenager and they will not be exactly be like the person that they were clone from.
Meaning: They will just physically look like you (facial and genetically) If you want that clone to look exactly like you when you where a teen then you will have to give it a similar life style that you where in. (Ex. If you where in sports, then you will have to put her in sports the same age you where. You will just repeat your life with new.) No person raises their children the same that they where raised

You're taking cloning from the wrong point of view. The main purpose of a clone is for spare parts or to recreate a skilled or talented person. Cloning would cost a lot of money therefore making it useless unless you are being used for one of the two reasons above. Imagine being born and your parents (or lab workers) telling you that your whole purpose was to give your other life another liver so that they could live better.

Lots of brave men and women go to iraq to either die or rank up.And many of those men and women have families. And their deaths bring grief or sadness.If we take the top soldiers and what not and clone them, we would have an upper hand in wars.Let's also say someone loses a leg or an arm during a horrible accident. They don't have to be a paraplegic for the rest of their lives, they can take a body part from one of their clones.

Exactly as a stated before, just worded differently. The new clone will be called and be treated as a "replacement". As you said before, they would be the same person but wouldn't have had the same experiences as the other son/daughter that deceased. That would make sentimental values useless so they would not need to clone him. About the paraplegic, the other clone would be used for spare parts. To get law into this, cloning is unconstitutional because clones are humans (guessing that they are American citizens), and humans are given the pursuit of happiness. How can you be happy if your whole purpose of being created was to benefit another, or " to be used for spare parts". Don't get me wrong, if there was a way to heal a paraplegic (without using anything to do with cloning) i would most likely be all for it.
