        Hello! Yes clones are possible, you might have heard of Dolly the sheep? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolly_(sheep) She was the first mammal to be successfully cloned. However, we still don’t know enough about cloning to make it safe on humans. It’s dangerous experimentation if it goes wrong.
