Clones will be sentient human beings. When we're able to clone people (and it's a matter of when - not if) they should have equal rights the same way twins do. Are we going to make them abide by our laws but not afford them the same protection under those laws? Not long ago we finally abolished the oppression of slavery. Are we going to go down that road again? We shouldn't.

They're not going to be real humans. They'll have no soul - literally! Treat them humanely but one of the reasons we're cloning them is to do work for us, right? We have to do what it takes to keep them in line.
