This is a cute turn of an otherwise silly idea:

A Winning Argument on Cloning?: "

‘Farming cloned livestock should be banned because the animals suffer too much, EU ethics experts said last night.’

Meanwhile, in the USA, there is no restriction-at all-on human cloning, be it for so-called ‘therapeutic’ purposes (i.e. where a human being is cloned and then the clone is dismembered for parts) or for reproductive purposes (that is, in America it’s A-OK to clone-for-babies). But maybe once we see that the animals suffer too much we’ll do something about the humans-we wouldn’t want to be speciesists, after all.
