Cloning Embryos from Adult Human Beings: The Relative Merits of Reproductive, Research and Therapeutic Uses

25 Pages Posted: 15 Apr 2005

Abstract

In this article, the author compares and contrasts the arguments for and against human cloning for therapy, research and reproduction. He concludes that legislators' concerns that reproductive cloning should be separated out from the other two uses and then be specifically prohibited are unnecessary. Thus, legislation should permit human cloning and even encourage it for some purposes (e.g., stem cell research and therapy). Although none of the aforementioned uses should be prohibited, all should be carefully regulated.
