Humans are something very different from animals, and the numbers required to get cloning to work in animals are completely prohibitory with humans.     

Christiane Nusslein-Volhard

The basic premise of this is that, yes, people have learned to clone each other, but that cloning is illegal. Not that it's bad, just that the law as it is now, is that if you die, you're dead.

Ken Woodruff

Human rights for prisoners and for clones. They feel the use of prisoners in cloning experimentation is in violation of those rights. Even though they are on death row we must treat them humanely until time of departure.      

Aaron Michael Lacey

Cloning science stands poised to shape our future, both in exciting and in potentially frightening ways.     

Aaron D. Levine

Cloning is, at its most basic level, reproduction without sex.

The word cloning describes the processes used to create an exact genetic replica of another cell, tissue or organism.     

P. Ramadass

The cloning of cells promises to produce many benefits in farming, medicine and basic research.     

P. Ramadass

Success in cloning a sheep does not guarantee success in cloning other organisms.     

Leon Kass

Cloning would only produce humanoids or androids--soulless replicas of human beings that could used as slaves.     

William Saunders

Synthetic humans would be easy for humanity's instincts.     

Nrent Staples

The cloning procedure has not been proven safe and, as a result, its application toward the generation of newborn children could produce deformities and other types of birth defects.     

Arlene Judith Klotzko

Opposition to cloning on the basis of safety alone is almost surely a losing proposition.     

Arlene Judith Klotzko

Efforts to clone humans clearly are not in the mainstream of biological research. Human cloning attempts will be costly and difficult.     

Daniel Cohen

Cloning was almost never shown as something that would be of benefit to our species in the future. It was something scary, dangerous and immoral.

The possibility of human cloning is offensive to the religious and other deeply held beliefs of many people.     

Stephen D. Fairbanks

Human cloning might relate primarily to producing more people.     

Robert Gilmore McKinnell

Thus cloning, although a useful procedure to the horticulturalist and experimental biologist, is not an appropriate method of reproduction. It seems that 4 billion plus souls are enough for this fragile sphere.     

Robert Gilmore McKinnell

The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about from science, along with behaviour control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers.     

Lewis Thomas

Anybody who objects to cloning on principle has to answer to all the identical twins in the world who might be insulted by the thought that there is something offensive about their very existence. Clones are simply identical twins.

George Annas

Cloning is the sincerest form of flattery.

Cloning is great. If God made the original, then making copies should be fine.

Cloning may be good and it may be bad. Probably it's a bit of both. The question must not be greeted with reflex hysteria but decided quietly, soberly and on its own merits. We need less emotion and more thought.     

Richard Dawkins

The pressures for human cloning are powerful; but, although it seems likely that somebody, at some time, will attempt it, we need not assume that it will ever become a common or significant feature of human life.
