Human Cloning: A Socio-Legal Study
Author:Kausal Pratap Singh*
The creation of Dolly's sheep using this technology by the Englishman Ian Wilmut and his scientific colleagues in 1998 was a breakthrough in science and technology. Scientists have synthesized complex elements such as genes and cells for many years. Still, the herd's success has prompted researchers to try 'human cloning,' which technically includes the most controversial topic in the world. Human Cloning is a new term; Cloning refers to a scientific method that involves creating a genetic replica of an animal or an existing person. Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) is used in human cloning. It is a process by which the nucleus of a fertilized egg is replaced by a somatic cell nucleus (the nucleus of an adult cell), either a nucleus from an ovum donor or a nucleus from another human cell. This paper aims to describe human cloning and some issues surrounding cloning, the importance of human cloning for human beings, and some legal implications.
Keywords:Key Words: Human Cloning, Human rights, Religious and Ethical issues.
