go on with clon humans!, Sal Atxondo
I completly agree with the option of clon human. We are not very
human in deed. That it's just an option for the people who want to have
achild and there no moral in the world to avoid it. The lawer or the politicals
are not free of charges in the moral statement. Go on with the science!

Cloning plants and animals, Deborah Leslie
Cloning can be very beneficial to humankind when used for farming and animal husbandry as the best of the best would be produced, making farming more profitable as there would be less disease and birth defects to deal with. However, policies would clearly need to be established to assure that only certain animals and plants be bred. In the pursuit of treating human diseases, I am not sure that animals should be used at all.
Be cautious to clone, David Zhou
Are we have the right to change the genetic way of other animals just because we want more food or pursue human disease treatments? The answer must be negative. In the ethics way, we,human beings, and other kinds of beings, are a part of nature. Noboby empower us to clone other species. Every kind beings has its own way to generate,boom and fade. We have interrupt the nature process too much. Leave the last Eden to these species. In the science way, the diversity of the genetic material is also a very important resource of the Earth. If we use the clone widely,it is sure that most of the gene will be extinct. The result will be what,no one knows.So, in a very limited scope,the clone research can be done.But,please do not use the technology as a copying machine.
Cloning to be or not to be, Anonymous User
Cloned animals are a breakthrough in human disease research as they allow work to continue on animals after they've been pumped with a certain amount of chemicals. I have no rational reason why I don't agree with cloning but there does seem something wrong with it and I wouldn't be surprised if some sort of side affect will make itself known in future. The other issue is ofcourse for every good use of cloned animals there will be a less altruistic use of cloning. At a very basic level there will probably be an increase in fraud as the identity of a particular animal will be difficult to define.
Hunger is a big problem in the Third World countries . I think that cloning is dengerous but only when cloning is use by army or privat organizations which want to clone people .Coning of Animals isn't rather dengerous . Cloning is chance for many people to survive.

Yes,but only selctively for medial research.
Big hope for the "third world", Filip Stefaniak
Cloning of animals is the big chance for the countries which aren't prosperous. The countries copeing with the problem of hunger (like many of african and asian states) probably look with hope at possibilites of cloning. I think that the utilization of cloning in the nutritive purposes (food industry) will become our future reality.
Let's take a step back. . ., Anonymous User :)
Starving countries will not solve all of their problems with the advent of animal cloning. These countries will also need land and facilities to raise animals and food to feed those animals. Further, won't cloning interfere with the process of natural selection?--how will this affect our world's populations in the "big picture." I think humans need to realize that there's a lot we don't know and we're stepping into dangerous, unchartered waters when we interfere with a powerful process like evolution.

just another exploitable resource, mike D.
Cloning for food: how is a third world country going to benefit from
a sheep fetus, the animals will still need to be fed and raised. We should
stick to cloning plants. Any grazing animal would need much more land and
resources to survive than a plant. Are we trying to turn the rest of the
world into a red meat eating land of consumption?

Where is a victim here?, David Batten (UK)
Why not? We use artificial insemination, factory farming, with-holding
calves from cows to prolong milk-production. And where is the harm? Which
animal is the victim? Not th edonor, who loses a few cells, nor the egg-donor,
nor the new young animal, which neither knows nor cares that it is genetically
identical to another animal.

Use it all, D.Collins
I think if we clone animals to increase food production we should. But only under the circumstances that since we can clone animals to be organ doners for humans. Clone the animals so they can be used for their organs and their meat.
cloneing, Adrian Pelchat
Yes, I think animals should be cloned for the uses of man kind, we can't be afrade of progress. though everything should be in modration and we can't go over bourd with this cloneing, to do this would be immoral and consequences WILL occer.
p2.s209.c06.k12.wv.us, Joshua Caruthers
I think cloning is God's job and should not be done by man. It also could cause diseases and other things by cloning. Ithink it is wrong and scientists should stop experimenting.

Address the real problem, Tiffany Noecker
The ever-growing nutritional needs of the world will not be solved
by increasing the number or productivity of animals, because animals are
more costly in terms of resources (land, grain, water, time).
Clearly defined obejctives that benefit us humans, Dammika Vitanage
It is an interesting idea that needs to be managed in a controlled envioronment. Benefits of such programmes need to be focused clearly towards humans. Outcomes and obejctives of such projects need to be developed with clarity and with an understanding of the risks. Management fo risks for the future and present is both important.

are used to provid smaller,stronger & healthier stocks and improve our
health treatments (not, ie. experiments for cosmetics) then go for it.
Negative thoughts, Melinda Coomes
I don't think that animals or humans should be cloned. If we need
more food then there has to be a nother way to get it. How about planting
more food. People can grow some food of there own.
Thomson.exploratorium.edu, Anonymous User
why should we clone animals for food?why can't we raise them as we heve been doing since forever? the ethical questions and problems raised with this cloning research are very important and should be dealt with before we decide to clone animals when we can just breed them.
Animal cloning? OKAY!, Kyle Arens
God gave us animals for our use. If man chooses to clone animals for the purpose of medical research, who is really going to stop them.
These are our diseases, not the animals and it is our fault about
the third world-not theirs., Sandrina Benns
If humans are going to clone humans, that is our problem but what gives us a right to clone animals that are not of our species? How can it be at all ethical to clone any living being without its aproval? I do not think that animals should be cloned to increase food production because animals should not be eaten any way. Nor to produce human disease treatments because animals have enough diseases of their own without being given ours so we can treat them. Please write to comment on this.
People First, Alayne
Many people would probably argue with this, but the truth is that animals were put on the earth to benefit humans. They shouldn't be treated cruelly or anything, but if they can be put to a good, constructive use they should be. If they are needed for food purposes or to treat diseases and they can be provided through cloning why shouldn't they be? The truth is that animals just don't the souls that make humans human, so it's not neccessary to treat them like humans or to put their lives above ours.
save to world, Eric Inoue
I think we should only clone endangered animals such as the elephant or the rino.
It is important to remember that as of yet, us humans have gotten on fine with the animals we have available. They are going to reproduce naturally, without our help. The only reason I can see to clone animals is if the particular animal is endangered. We can help them out so that they don't become extinct.

Desicions we make, anonymous user
I think that we as humans are given things by higher spirit we are not aware of. I think that as humans we should use this gift that has been given to us that gives us the opportunity to clone animals, we should have to be able to clone animal that are becoming exticnt because we are already losing the wonderful creatures of the world because of our stupid pollution and I don't see why we can't use cloning as an advantage to save the creatures. This may sound like I'm a freak or something but I really think we should think twice about the things we bring into this world. Who knows, maybe sometime in the futur they'll fink out that cloning was such a great idea. Alos is the world growing so fast in technology that we should be cloning? I really like that we are smart enough that we could be able to do this, but why don't we use our time to find cures for AIDS? Why are we so conserned about cloning when we should be conserned about the poor?

I DONT THINK YOU SHOULD CLONE ANIMALS TO INCREASE THE FOOD PRODUCTION.I DONT THINK YOU SHOULD CLONE ANIMALS PERIOD
We might need this stuff some day, A Person
I haven't really taken a lot of time to think about this cloning thing until now. I think that in the future, we might lose some of the important species of animals that are a part of out everyday lives. Many species become extinct every day, and we need some of them to survive. I think that cloning is a good thing for animals, but not humans. Somebody could start a lot of trouble with it and it could get out of hand. It's just like in the movie "Jurassic Park" where all of the people are trying to get the dinosaur DNA so they can use it for their own good.

We kill enough animals as it is. However, if we are going to kill animals
they should be used for the benefit of human health. So, yes, killing animals
to pursue human disease treatments is okay.
No, we should leave nature alone.

more meat, Nebula Star
I feel that we should clone animals because the more the better. If cloning animals can help other humans and it doesn't really hurt the animals then we should try our best to help out. If even one life could be spared from tragety of the unknown then we as a whole should try our best to help out in any way. In turn animals have rights even if they can't speak for themselves.

why should we need to clone animals, plants or humans at this stage, mabye in the futur but why now? Us humans must learn to protect our natural resorces and not use them unwisely.

Yes, within limitations, Bruce Maynard
Yes, but only to reproduce superior genes, and then only for no more
than 2-3 generations; replicative errors would become a real problem after
a bit. However, reproducing a champion racing-horse or a superior stud-bull
would be a very good idea, to give their genes a wider base (they can impregnate
females only so quickly alone)

I respond to this question whith other ones:
ONLY IF, opertunity knocks
animals should olny be used if there is proof that cloning would not alter the item produced, in any way long or short term. I also think that cloning should be used in treating others if the same were true.I also believe that if you are going to create a life just to kill it for human needs is wrong. There should be some regulation on how and why the animals are cloned. Cloning is a delacate thing, and is in the begining, peopel will be scared of it because it is an unnatural process and used wrong, people will have a right to be scared. The point that I'm trying to make is that with the right regulations and rules clonnig will became a very good thing to humans. We must also think of the animals in terms of long time effects. Animals are bound to change. We MUST NOT allow ourselves to get to cought up in all the clonning, to forget about the way nature takes with the changes that go on through gentic mutations. It could mean the olny way for a species to ive in the future.

Beyond The Ethics, Tamyka Bell
The problem with using animals in human disease treatment is the risk of inadvertantly introducing a new disease which can spread to anyone else. Pathogens from one species can mutate to suit human beings after being introduced via xenotransplantation and it is a risk that I don't think we're ready to take.
There are many benefits to increasing food production and the quality of the food. I am especially interested in cloning for the sake of medical research and developments. Producing organs from your own genetic material would eliminate the need for costly and side-effectful medicines to prevent rejection of the organ. I don't think there is any need for cloned humans because Earth is overly populated as it is.
