    Cloning is both illegal and immoral. It is not happening. How would you feel if you were a clone, merely a copy of another person, with that person's shoes to fill? Also, cloning is not like in the movies, it does not create a perfect copy of a person as it is a different organism that will have different experiences throughout its life and will start from day 1 like you did when you were born.

    Just my two cents on why that isn't happening. It is more likely that one of his children might take his place.
