I think our scientists need to age a little bit more. Because then they would realize that around the age of 80, most people have no problem with dying. It's not that they want to die; it's just they're very comfortable with it. And they don't want to live any longer than they are absolutely able to.
I think human cloning is wrong, but as stated, if it will generate a profit, they will eventually do it and then we will have a whole new set of problems with more greed and ethical violations than we can possibly fathom.
I think if you had a people who were willing to have a clone made of them that had the applicable genetics (family isn't prone to non transmittable diseases like cancer or heart defects), they could create more people that could (after NATURAL death) be used to donate healthy organs when they're needed so you don't have to go to some sketchy overseas guy selling organs over eBay and then find out you have HIV/AIDS a few weeks later
I think human cloning is morally wrong, dehumanizing, and a generally stupid idea. If people can just be cloned, the value of the individual goes way down...just like the value of any mass produced thing. I agree with LH1997 also. :)
It doesn't matter WHAT your philosophies or ethics are - cloning of ANYTHING is short-sighted. Your lifetime is determined by the length of your telomeres. When you clone anything, the new life comes out with the same aged telomeres as the original subject. Dolly the sheep died of old age fairly soon after she was cloned. Yes: new creature, new frontier, but old telomeres and the clone dies prematurely.... Also, MOST clones are deformed monsters that cannot survive a week unassisted, anyway....
