What Ever Happened to Cloning?

August 6, 2016

(U.S. News & World Report) – So why did it never catch on? One reason is that researchers have a hard time arguing that there’s a dire social need for cloning a whole person: Much that can be learned from studying two people with the same genes can be seen in nature, by simply studying identical twins. Another reason cloning never became widespread is that it is fraught with ethical dilemmas because it’s still hard to get right – even in animals.
