Question: Has genetical engineering reached the point where you can clone humans?

Keywords: , , ,

  1. “Dolly” the sheep was cloned in the United Kingdom back in the early 2000s. So if we are able to clone a sheep, it is likely that we are also able to clone humans or that point is not that far away.

    However, the question becomes not a technical one, but an ethical one. Is it appropriate to clone a human? Mainstream scientific work is governed by ethical considerations and all research institutions will have Ethic Committees which approve projects before they proceed. It is highly unlikely that such a research project would be approved!
