Cloning a human being is a terrifying prospect, from a moral perspective, and seems inevitable.
A premise here is that abstract thought is a unique human endowment, so our colleague Wesley Smith will also find this of interest as a scientific test of human exceptionalism.
Human cloning has been accomplished, but the field remains generally stalled because of a shortage of human eggs.
After going through the appearance of hand-wringing, I wouldn’t expect much of a problem if scientists said they really wanted to proceed.
The children could have serious health consequences — either early or later in life — having been generated, after all, from two broken eggs.
