Editor's note: "Zhongzhong" and "Huahua", the world's first cloned monkeys, have been created at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shanghai. The successful cloning has sparked discussions online. What do you think of this latest scientific development? Will humans be next? Forum readers share their opinions.

The science of cloning should be further explored and advanced. It is presently not yet perfected. Many cloned animals exhibit genetic illness and deformities. Until the process is perfected, I would not recommend cloning animals.
