Pros for cloning - cloning of organs allow organ transplant at any time (no need to find donors) - cloning of organs allow organ transplant without triggering immune attack against foreign tissue since the cloning will be based on your own cells - cloning specific organs or tissues allow us to study their function without having to experiment on a live person. Obviously, organs or tissues from dead people may not be as useful since they don't exactly...function anymore - cloning of tissues allow recovery of those with burns - cloning of spinal cord may enable those with spinal cord injuries to heal and be able to walk again -techniques for cloning can be applied to other areas of biological research, for example, cell cycle regulation, genetics research, etc. If we have the technology to clone things, we can apply the technology to learn much more about cell biology than we currently know - Kind of controversial, but I guess you can say that cloning people in countries where there is a decreasing population can allow the working force to increase, thus improve the productivity of the country and strength of its economy
cons- The technology to clone an entire being and clone an organ is quite different which would devalue one’s being.
-experiments on clones is not ethical (an argument against that: we can always clone organs and tissues and not clone the whole thing) -some government might use the technology to clone people and make a clone army (an argument against that: are you watching too much Star Wars? The technology to clone an entire being and clone an organ is quite different. Besides, even if that were to happen, it would be the government's fault, not the fault of the technology. Even though we clone our beloved ones come to life again, it would not be the same, because cloned are living beings too and probably grow in different habitat leading to complete opposite of the original.
