Human Cloning Questions from a website visitor

I would like to know if you could possibly answer the following questions.

1. What are the benefits of human reproductive cloning?

2. Do you agree that attempting to clone a human at the present time would be a responsible decision? If you disagree, can you please state the necessary steps to be done before it would be responsible to clone a human?

3. If the United States federal government were to lift its ban on funding human reproductive cloning, what regulations do you think must be set?

4. In the past years, there have been many claims that a human being was already cloned, but it seems that there is no concrete scientific evidence to validate such claims. When do you think human cloning will be successfully done in an experiment? In commercial terms?

5. Many critics of human cloning say that if human cloning was ever allowed, it would change the fundamentals of society and family dynamics. For example, when an adult creates a clone of himself or herself, is his or her clone be considered a child, or a sibling? How do you think societies and families will adapt to such dramatic change?

6. Human cloning is a widespread topic in mass media today, and more often than not it depicts cloning as an evil technology. Of course, the public believes these fictional potrayals of cloning. How would you change the public's perceptions on cloning?
