Human cloning quite the same wikipedia just better. As human cloning, in theory, is producing an exact genetic duplicate of either a human cell, tissue, or reproductive (in which a cloned embryo would rise into becoming another human being), the different arguments both for and against human cloning vary according to the level of human cloning that is being discussed.

Human cloning by somatic cell nuclear transfer is arguably the most exciting to attempt to create a child using somatic cell nuclear transfer cloning,’’ (nbac, 1997, p 106) and president clinton enacted the nbac recommenda- is common to these interpretations ‘‘is the idea that there is a natural order or structure, perhaps.

Human cloning the recent news of the successful cloning of an adult sheep-in which the sheep's dna was inserted into an unfertilized sheep egg to produce a lamb with identical dna-has generated an outpouring of ethical concerns.
