In a nutshell, no, I wouldn't want that.

I was recently watching the news and they reported of a doctor who was practicing cloning. So far, all people implanted have had miscarrages. But the doctor said its only a matter of time for a woman to be able to carry a cloned human being full term.
My question is, if you had a deceased loved one, would you want them to be cloned? Would you be willing to carry the baby yourself?

I agree so far from the animals that has been cloned, they are not even alike, because we are a combination of genetic material passed on by our parents and parents before us, the chances to even have a clone that looks just like the original are to0 hard to predict.
And like others said you may be able to get a "twin" if you are lucky but is the soul what makes that person unique, if the soul of the original is not available then you will end up with a different person that has nothing to do with the original at all.
