The thoughts about could, should, or would....
If people were machines, I'd say, sure...why not?
But, I subscribe to the idea that people are powered by souls. Basically, your 'mind' is incorporated with your soul.
Where does a soul come from? hmm....this is another debate. But me, I believe that they were part of a creation from a higher being (namely, God).
Now, the body can replicated....sure. But what about a soul? You can't make another soul.
The thing with people making babies again, thats just stupid. Thats like your black lab getting hit by a car, and buying another black lab. Not the same dog. It only looks the same.
Here is another question.....If a person is cloned, does that clone have parents?

a soul is empty but is being filled and created by feelings, senses, nursering, teaching, your soul will be formed.

Cloning may have long term benefits to science and health, but I think that cloning humans is too risky. We dont want to end up with mutants or anything.
