The cloning of any human being is morally and ethically wrong. Cloning humans for any reason, including birth or research, should be opposed. Cloning of DNA, cells or anything else that does not create a new human life is acceptable. Every step in enhancing the human cloning technique brings us one step closer to the birth of a cloned baby. Cloning of humans would require the creation and destruction of human life. New humans would be created and destroyed in massive numbers for scientific research.
Cloning humans presents serious personal, familial and societal difficulties, thereby creating a new category of biological relationships. Who would be the "parents?" Who would be legally and morally responsible for these cloned babies? Human cloning violates fundamental human rights and demeans the unique physical identity over those who are cloned. Cloning would make human life a commodity while lessening respect for the value of human life.
