Pros/For

  • in the first amendment it allows it

cons/ Against

  • cloning is very expensive
  • there can only be one version of a person
  • most people do not like human cloning
  • the president says that all life should be treated with dignity
  • at a presidents speech both sides clapped for a ban on human cloning

Final thoughts

I think that human cloning should not be allowed for many reasons. For one, even though scientists can use them for research they are still people to. there are just made differently. Plus for scientist to get the clones it is very expensive, so the government would have to pay a lot of money. And even if they don't kill them there would have have to because there can only be one version of a person. So in conclusion i think that human cloning should not be allowed.
