A clone is not the same as the original. In other words even if you had a machine that could make a facsimile of a body after destroying the original, the facsimile would be a different person because cloning does not replicate a personality. The simple reason for this is that every personality is unique.
I've read that when animals are cloned in the laboratory, their personalities are different. People who have a beloved pet cloned are not getting the same animal.
