Reference your recent E-mail communication to me:
1. Your objection is valid. As with any previously unknow technology
caution and vigilence are advisable.
2. However, it seems unlikely that clones will be any more (or less)
subject to disease than are the donors from whom DNA is taken
to start the cloning process.
3. Most people appear frightened about cloning simply because it is
something new to them and they really don't understand what is
involved. Yet these same people have no fear of human twins and
tripletts (or even larger multiple births) which, for all practical
poses, pose the same issues as for cloned births.
4. I have heard several people say: "I wouldn't like two of me running
around." However, I have never heard identical twins (and I've
several) say that.
