in February 1997 Scottish geneticists successfully cloned a sheep named Dolly. This was a milestone in modern biotechnology. This article attempts to react to the ethical aspects of cloning from a Christian perspective. The argument of this essay is that Christians ought to encourage a moratorium on human cloning because there do not appear to be any motives or reasons for cloning that are in harmony with God's design for human existence.
This article shows that there are some strong biblical grounds to rule out cloning as wrong due to the destruction of life. However, the author also proposes a few arguments in support of cloning.
