Huh?[edit]

"Human cloning, in reality, is rarely as it is portrayed..." If it has never happened then there is no reality. — Unsigned, by: Gravity / talk / contribs


Ethics[edit]

The article states that it would be unethical to clone humans but gives no explanation about why. — Unsigned, by: Gravity / talk / contribs

Isaac Asimov[edit]

'Somewhere' in his factual writings (there were a lot of them) Asimov said that - even if he was cloned the clone would be brought up/live in a completely different context (different era, family etc) to him, so would not be him (and probably wouldn't become writers).

Cloning defective or damaged organs is slightly different to cloning people: to what extent would 'the original problems' be repeated? (Obviously not for injured organs.) Anna Livia (talk) 19:21, 3 December 2019 (UTC)
