I support it in regards to cloning individual body parts and tissues, but not whole individuals. If one day they can clone a body without a brain (using artificial means to regulate autonomic systems), I would support that as well.

The problem with cloning entire individuals has been explored by science fiction for years, and many books and television programs have brought up valid concerns. The idea of the incredibly rich keeping developing clones for spare parts, is a frightening thought — and one that is not too far-fetched.
