    Um, no. Cloning a person makes a new person (just like identical twins) and is not even remotely close to bringing someone back to life.

    Well first all of medicine is "playing God". Second, this sounds really creepy and like the plot of a crappy horror movies. What are the odds that it comes out a devil child?

    Its not her though, no prior memories, not starting where she left off, just a new baby.

    It sets a dangerous precedent though. Removing the need to cope with loss, one of the greatest losses for an individual, will have untold consequences.

    Write it in my will that when I die, me and all my cells are staying that way.

    If they did manage to clone her, it wouldn`t be her.
    And it would be really weird knowing you were just a replica of a dead person, made to try to recreate who they were, and not just be yourself.

    Playing God, Playing god, playing God, oh hush you silly humans.

    You`ve already domesticated the wolf and bred teacup poodles.

    You`ve already taken fruit from the trees and turned it into hybrids and expanded their size and ripped the very seeds from their bodies.

    You`ve already taken the smell of a rose and placed it in a glass bottle.


    So now, you want to make a duplicate of a human being.

    Just another notch in the belt.

    As allready is said, it`s not her it is (in theory) a new person sharing the same genes. Cloning in this manner is pointless.
    I`m all for cloning body parts in a test tube ,such as growing new organs but not a full person to take them from. As said..this manner of cloning is pointless.

    Wow, human cloning is DEFINITELY not far enough along for this to be performed without serious setbacks. The problem is that her cells would rapidly age, like what happens in the elderly. Because when we are at the zygote stage (like 2 cells in the womb) the processes which control cell division are at their absolute highest. But by the time we are born even (and for her at 10 years old, when they took her blood), the tiny fibers that pull our chromosomes apart are weathered and aged. Numerous cloning techniques in other animals, even very simple ones, has shown that because these spindle fibers aren`t perfect anymore the organism ages and dies very quickly.

    It`s unethical because she would be dead by the time she was 10. Again. "Playing God" has nothing to do with it.

    As LadyIsis says, if they are cloning her, it will not be the original her. Its like a twin. The only thing they will have in common would be physical. So she is not being reborn as her mind and soul died (sounds hippy and wierd but thats all i can be bothered to write at this late hour)

    `This is for Cady. This is a mother expressing love for a daughter and trying to give her daughter life. `

    Um no offense intended, but your daughter is dead, and you cannot `give her life`. Because she`s dead. If you want another kid, just have one naturally, which is about the same thing anyway, just LESS work. All you would be doing is giving a completely random child life, who may look like your daughter. Who is dead.

    I understand grief, but come on, that`s just mental.

    first of all, he would have to make many clones of her because it takes hundreds of tries to just get one to work, she would be deformed most likely, and there is a HUGE difference between natural reproduction and post mordem cloning. there is absolutely no reason to do this.

    I have zero problems with cloning.

    This is because the clone is NOT THE PERSON. I`ve never understood why people think this. It`s not going to be the same person. It`s a copy of a person. It won`t have the same personality or thought process.

    I`m against THIS particular insance of cloning because people expect the clone to be this little girl. And it won`t ever be her.

    I don`t a problem with cloning, it self. I have problem with its application(s). And what`s to happen after cloning people refined or perfected?
    My fear is this technology is going to be militarized once its perfected.

    just to throw a wrench in the whole cloning "machine" debate...sorry to spoil your fun, but perfect genetic clones already exist and always have existed in nature folks...

    they`re called identical twins.

    science is merely a "miniature reproduction" of nature in a more controlled environment.

    wrong. not perfect. from the moment of conception there is a whole new set of "epi genes" that are different for each and every person. no two people are genetically identical.

    and what you pretty much said is, humans trying to play God. it`s been done time and time again, and each time it happens we see more problems. the price of civilization

    I don`t see why its even called `playing god` if we find a way to do it and are capable of making it happen it isn`t playing god, its playing human. I realize that many bad things can happen w this but it is what it is and is nothing more than an ethics debate.

    i think they should go ahead and see if they can clone her, but abort her before she reaches that un-abortable age. that way we could say that we could do it, and the girl wouldnt have to live as someone elses clone.

    Shame on the parent(s) who would want this in the first place.
    Just because the child may LOOK like the one who died, doesn`t mean they are the same person.
    Imagine when they get older and know that the only reason they were born is because the parents wanted their other child back.

    Personally, I think its cool, and if people have the money... then sure, why not? I don`t get why everyone is fine with animals being cloned, but freak out when its people. Sometimes I swear we only just crawled out of the Dark ages. The world is not flat, Photographs don`t steal your soul, and cloning is not going to bring down some "wrath of God" nor will the future likely be filled with vast armies of cloned Hitlers.
    I think it`d be kind of cool to raise a clone of myself and see how different outcomes in life completely change a person. It would be facinating in a way to see who I might have been if I didn`t have such weird parents. :P

    Whoa. That`s pretty hardcore. I also love the fact that "A jolt from an electric current makes the egg divide and develop into an embryo." That just further enhances my image of this going on in a secret laboratory, with a mad scientist harvesting lightning and directing it at some woman strapped to a table, while wildly cackling "It`s ALIIVEE!!"

    "Frankenstein is the name of the Doctor, not the facking monster!!"

    Ok. My thoughts on why this is bad - nothing to do with Zombies etc. But, the world is already overcrowded with Humans. Illness and disease is Natures way of slowing our extreme over-population down. It`s like natural selection.
    Some people can`t have children. That`s it. Awful, but true. There are enough children being abused, or in care, and adoption has been a great option for many years.
    My brother and his wife had a beautiful permature baby, and he only lived for 11 days. They were devastated by his death. Heartbroken. But would they have considered having his precious life cloned - absolutely not! It would not take away the heartache and pain that they went through. As hard as it is to come to terms with, he passed away for a reason. They went on to have 2 more brilliant kids.
    Cloning is not a good idea. Whether on a human or an animal

    No, it doesn`t change because Frankenstein is the SURNAME, he was Doctor Frankenstein and the monster was Dr Frankenstein`s monster; it had no name.

    I definitely thought cloning would be a lot cooler. But I gotta` admit - it`s really not. Oh, wow, we`re taking someone`s DNA and making someone else... With the same DNA. Who is probably going to act nothing like the person they were cloned from. And might not even look like them.

    Gee wiz.

    Anyone hear about the cloned horse? Apparently, the clone was a different color than the horse from which the DNA was obtained. Yeah, real impressive.

    Death is only hard on the living, this is f#cked. It`s the equivalent of the guy who can`t get over hi first girlfriend so he only dates women that look like her and tries to change them to be like her. Sick.

    It`s a telomere problem... (in laymans terms) every time chromosomes are doubled during mitosis, the ends of them shorten. This means that when you`re older, your DNa is literally eating itself away.
    This is why taking a mature person`s DNa and introducing it into an egg is flawed as the DNa is already aged - hence all the problems that Dolly the sheep had

    I dont think it should be stopped because people claim there is a magic man in the sky.
    but i think it should be questioned as the clones would have a limited life.

    keep religeon out of science.

    It`s interesting that Mary Shelly was brought up, because she probably would have been all for the cloning, but maybe would have thought twice when the quality of life for the clone was brought up... that was the point of her book.

    I agree with fluffypink or whatever her name is

    If you clone the person, then technically it isn`t the real person. There is so much that makes this clone like going out to walmart and buying a talking mannequin.

    I think it`s sick from a religious stand point; just my opinion,I`m not trying to egg anyone. It also is wrong on the basis that if babies were to be born of corpses it would happen naturally. Why is the science of cloning people so fascinating? Last I checked we`re at 6 billion and counting. Great in a few years not only will I have to fight idiots for air but clones as well.

    that was the most retarded argument ive ever heard.

    Holy crap, it`s like the book Double Identity. Don`t do it! Once the clone finds out they`re a clone, they`ll never live a happy life.

    When I read the title, I thought it meant they were going to literally bring her back to life. That would`ve been awesome.

    They`re not bringing back Cady; they`re making someone that looks like her. Humans are defined by personality, not looks.
