Abstract:     
Whether or not a human child can be cloned is still unclear, however, since that day when Dolly the sheep was successfully cloned, the United States has established a policy preventing federal money from being spent on human cloning experiments. The National Bioethics Advisory Commission (NBAC) reviewed the scientific, religious, ethical, and legal issues raised by the prospect of human cloning in the same manner as Dolly. The panel concluded that it posed unacceptable risks. The ban on federal funding for this kind of research has continued. This is despite possible benefits from cloning.

The purpose of this article regards the legal questions involving pro-creative rights raised by cloning as a form of reproduction. This includes addressing the matter of whether we have the right to reproduce by any means and legal relationships with cloned children. The article argues that cloning is not as revolutionary as it appears.
