The motive is to cure and help people with diseases by recreating cells or tissues, but they are using stem cells to do this. The motive for human cloning, however, is not good(Cloning). Humans are trying to rebuild the Tower of Babel. They are trying to reach God, be as good as Him, or create life as perfectly as Him which is not moral. “Those who believe an embryo isn’t a human person see no problem in cloning embryos and taking their stem cells even though doing so kills them.” The outcome of trying to help cure a disease is millions of dead people.

Also every year the number of people on the list who die also grows. Sometimes people cannot donate because their religion does not allow it. People believe that if you are an organ donor doctors will not try as hard to save your life so they can use your organs quicker and not try to save you.
