Would You Be a Clone of Your Parents?

Imagine you are a clone. Would you rather be a clone of one of your parents, or would you rather be the clone of someone your parents selected for reasons of their own?

To answer the question properly, provide your reasoning to show if it is sound and to see if you understand the science and reality of cloning. Describe why you would choose one or another option. You can ground your answer on the following readings:

  • “Smart Mice, Not-So-Smart People” by Arthur L. Caplan.
  • “How to Defeat Your Own Clone” by Kyle Kurpinski and Terry D. Johnson.
