Should We Allow Human Cloning?

  • Yes. Having a kid with 50 percent of my DNA is nice, but I could do better.
  • No. I don’t think human beings should be playing God, aside from modern medicine, the death penalty, genetically modified crops, the subjugation of animals, and in-vitro fertilization.
  • Yes. If we criminalize cloning, then the only people with clones will be criminals and the clones of those criminals.
  • Fine with me. I realized long ago that another me walking around wouldn’t make me any less of a self-centered asshole.
  • Okay, but only if we outlaw that bullshit where you say their name and they all say “what?” simultaneously.
  • Absolutely. We seem to be at a loss for other ways to create human life.
  • Yes, but start with only a few hundred thousand, then reevaluate.
  • Sure. Why not? God is dead.
