ETHICAL QUESTION:

In light of the news of so-called "human cloning" going on, we have to ask ourselves this hypothetical question. If you pushed your naked clone off the top of a tall building, would it be:

A ) murder
B ) suicide, or
C ) merely making an obscene clone fall

Oh well, the guy who sent it to me said it sucked too!

Pushing your clone off the building is the same crime as pushing your identical twin off a building. It's another seperate person who happens to share your DNA, if not your mDNA (at this point in cloning technology). If your naked clone is a baby, that's even worse. It's just wrong, tossing a baby off a roof!
Now if someone programmed a robot to have the exact same brain function and memories and emotions as you, and you set it on fire just to watch it die, and it cries because it will never see your children again, that would be suicide.

Yeah... I think that would make a good novel. And I'll try not to be so depressing in the future, I promise!
Although, it IS just a robot, isn't it?

That would be suicide, and, therefore, legal, because only attempted suicide is illegal.;)
