Clones versus Humans;Is there a Difference?

 Clones versus humans; Is there a Difference?


The people who made the sci-fi movie "The Island" made me curious because there is a clone in the movie..I want to know from you, do you think that t clones , if people finally do make them, should have the same rights as you and me?And also, are these clones capable of making informed decisions like you and me?Please leave me a comment.

Our personalities are shaped by our experiences.  The clone would look like you and me, but he/she would have his own experiences to shape him/her and will not act or think exactly like the original.  The clone of a human would biologically be a human, so they would probably have the same rights as any other human.

I think that even if they cloned people that they would have separte personalities but then comes the whole theory....would they have a soul?

Hmmmm, such hard questions in your journal lately!!!!  AAAGGHHHH, my head is gonna explode!  LOL!  I don't think clones would have souls would they?  Without a soul, what are you really?

okay, say your child dies, you have them cloned, waht a horrible exixtence fo rthe "new " child to know he or she is only a replacement?
and how valueable are each of us if we can be replicated if we are disposed of?

A human clone is still just another human and should bear all rights thereof.  That should not be in question.  A clone could never be exactly the same as the doner, as environment and experiences have influence on who we are.  The person would be different inside.  Sort of like twins.  Should twins be treated any different because there are two of them?  Are they the same person?  No!   I feel it would be no different than making someone a twin.  Clone is an ugly name IMO!  Any life is precious nomatter how it is altered or created.

A cloned human would still be a human. With human rights.
