    Cloning has been a sensitive issue in America for a long time. While the technology used in cloning has seen significant improvements over the years, people's opinions about its morality and ethicality have remained mixed. In my opinion, cloning should stay banned no matter how efficient the technology behind it becomes, because cloning is unethical, impossible to perfect, and goes against religion.

    Abstract Cloning first kick-started in 1996, with the cloning of Dolly, in which there was no male involved in the cloning. Ever since Dolly, hundreds of animals have been cloned. Every single day, scientists are getting close and closer to cloning humans. With the technology today, it is seems more evident to happen. Nevertheless, not everyone believes that we should be cloning humans. In the United States right now, there is no law banning any kind of human cloning. This means that at this
