i am against human cloning but i respect others thoughts on the subject
if a person has a genetic disesase which will be passed on to his/her child then i dont see this as a bad thing.
But just to clone a child for the sake of it i think it is awful
it is not natural !!!!

poptart2001, not that I'm necessarily disagreeing with you, but I really don't get that "it's not natural" line that people give as response to everything from homosexuality to cloning. Look at an average day in your life - i bet you do a hundred things that are not natural. Look at people getting plastic hips, using contact lenses or flying on airplanes? Is that natural?

Again, I do not necessarily disagree with your opinion, I just don't think that cloning being "unnatural" is rather irrelevant.

I dont think of homosexualitly as being un-natural (that is the way you were made)
as for contact lenses and hips and so on,these things improve the qualitly of your life,so i think that is a different matter.
as for cloning as i said in my previous post i agree with it if it is going to improve your life (e.g you have a genetic disorder)
but cloning jut for the sake of it is un-natural

thanks for your thoughts,i respect everyone elses opionons and it s intreasting to see what other ppl think on this subject.
:-) :-) :-) :-)

I don't necessarily disagree with poptart either, but I just had another thought (actually I had this thought a while ago when I was away from this board)

How about in vitro fertilization, or fertility drugs? Surely these methods aren't "natural" in the truest sense of the word. I know this may be straying off topic here, but what do some people think about fertility treatments in order to have children? How about people who have multiple births, (like the family that had 7 children in one go) Sure the result is "natural," but the methods in which the pregnancy occured was not. Any thoughts?

adam's_mistress: the examples you mentioned are exactly what I'm thinking of when I say that arguing that cloning is "unnatural" while accepting the practices you mention doesn't make sense.

So one might make the claim that cloning is immoral or risky for different reasons, but practically everything in our modern world is unnatural.

IVF may not be natural no but as you said the outcome is.
when you have Ivf you do not choose the type of child you want, but with cloning you can, so i see this as a different matter altogether,
there are lots of unnatrual things you do in everday life but none as important as clonig,my child has learning disabilites and i am proud of him the way he is i cant unserstand why people would want to make a child to suit them!!!!as said in my previous post i do agree with it,if say there are genetic disorders which would badly affect the chids life.
but it scares me because i think it could get out of hand!!!!!!
sory if im not making much sense,i find it hard to put down what i actually think lol
