Their personality would also be very different as well as their mitochondria and uterine that make the person different. Human cloning should be legalized.

Human cloning uses the person's own cells to produce a healthy, normal organ. With cloning, there would be no need for anti-rejection drugs to keep the foreign organ alive and working.

The normal way of getting new skin would be to artificially grow it in a special lab and attach it to the body hoping that the body wont reject it.

There would be no more brain damaged people because brain cells could be cloned and replaced with the damaged cells. Heart attacks can be reversed by cloning healthy heart cells and replacing them with the damaged...
