EQ: Is reproductive cloning good for mankind?

I think it is not good for mankind. Through all my findings it had more Cons than Pros. I say No because it could disrupt life as we know it. We could think that we are talking to the real Mrs. Smith but we could be talking to her clone. It could also make us look like we are trying to play the role of "God".
