it wouldn't make sense to clone it because u would have purely the "looks" of ur pet not the personality and it wouldn't be the same.. hell if u wanted to perserve the looks then maybe get a painting of it or a sculpture but not cloning it..
I don't have a pet, so I didn't vote. I do want to say that it's an interesting poll. I often wonder about cloning. Do clones have personalities or emotional feelings? If not, it would be pointless to clone anything if it just exists.
ok cloning something is taking the same cells and making a "copy" of a person/animal.. so yes the looks will be exactly the same but the personality and the emotions won't be "copied" as well.. so ur purely cloning the looks..
I wouldn't clone it. And if I could resurrect it, I wouldn't. Life and death are a natural cycle and so are the emotions that follow. As hard as death is, we must learn to let go and deal with it. I'd just get another pet and learn to love it.
I was listening to a radio program about this. Apparently it is felt that the major commercial success of cloning pets will be to provide "spare parts" for organ transplants. Thus people wouldn't have cloning done to replicate their pet, but to keep their pet alive.
I cringe at the idea of a clone of my pet being kept in laboratory as a source as "spare parts". Unfortunately I'm sure some people WILL pay for it to be done ...
Denise: I haven't heard about that, but I did hear there would a big enough market already to pet owners who wants to replace their old or dead pets. So maybe it's for both. Either way it's pretty sick... it's all about money! :sad:
I'm against cloning of pigs for "spare parts" for humans too. The worse thing about that is: 1. it's inhumane of the pigs 2. it's dangerous of the humans who take up the pig organs (I mean what if something goes wrong years after?) We don't understand all the diseases that could be lying dormant. IMO that would be like cheating death for later (possible) suffering which could be worse. Anyhow..
The scary thing about all these clonings is that it's only going to be a matter of time before humans are cloned too. Better control it now or never...
