I am a student at Dinuba High School and I’m writing to express my objection to human cloning. Cloning should be banned and illegal because neither the animal or human gets the same personalities and can mess them up forever.
One argument about cloning is the personality of either the human or animal will be different. Depending on the type of cloning someone uses, it can either be reproductive or therapeutic. Reproductive cloning is when an embryo is put into the female’s uterus as to therapeutic cloning the embryo is in the laboratory and scientist deal with it. Since cloning doesn't make an exact copy of something why do it? When people clone an animal or human it will look the same but the personality will be gone and it will have a whole new one.
