Use reverse transcriptase, do pcr, done.
You'd probably be violating safety rules if you do that. Human tissue makes it a BL2 procedure, and then there's consideration of 'informed consent' and 'research subject protection rules' about getting the tissue sample. It's a nightmare to consider all that dangerous biological material inside my body.
But, yeah, I agree it's not extremely difficult to clone genes yourself. The considerations are whether you have access to a tissue that expresses the gene(s), and the sequence should be verified by sequencing, so consider that if the gene is large this takes more effort.
