SUMMARY

"News in February 1997 that scientists in Scotland had succeeded in cloning an adult sheep ignited a worldwide debate. Of concern are the ethical and social implications of the potential application of cloning to produce human beings. The announcement marked the first time that researchers were able to produce an exact genetic replica of an animal adult. Scientists identify a number of potential medical and agricultural applications for this technique. Within hours of the February 24 news, President Clinton asked his National Bioethics Advisory Commission (NBAC) to initiate a complete review of the ethical and social issues related to cloning and report back within 90 days. On March 4, 1997, the President sent a memorandum to the heads of all executive departments and agencies making it 'absolutely clear that no federal funds will be used for human cloning.' He also urged the private sector to adopt voluntary ban on the cloning of humans until the NBAC completed its evaluation."
