I am adamantly against the cloning of animals for use in our food supply. It seems to me there is no reason for the cloning of these animals as we do not have a shortage now or in the foreseeable future. I think the bottom line is that certain industries stand to make a lot of money from the cloning process. Should the cloning of livestock for the food supply happen then any products from these cloned animals should be labeled as such so that I may avoid spending my money on them. I believe it is ethically and morally wrong to clone animals for the food supply. Just because the biotechnology industry can clone doesn't mean they should clone.
