Reproductive cloning is the cloning of a human being.

Such fears, however, seem more warranted with respect togenetic engineering than to cloning. By offering some people --in all probability, members of the upper classes -- theopportunity to acquire desired traits through geneticmanipulation, genetic engineering could bring about a biologicalreinforcement (or accentuation) of existing social divisions. Itis hard enough already for disadvantaged children to compete withtheir more affluent counterparts, given the material resourcesand intellectual opportunities that are often available only tochildren of privilege. This unfairness would almost certainly becompounded if genetic manipulation came into the picture. Incontrast, cloning does not bring about "improvements" in thegenome: it is, rather, a way of the genome --with all its imperfections. It wouldn't enable certain groups ofpeople to keep getting better and better along some valueddimension.

Everyone started to discuss about its advantages or the ethical issues of human cloning.

The Commission was particularly impressed by the secondexample. That scenario, said the NBAC report, "makes what isprobably the strongest possible case for cloning a human being,as it demonstrates how this technology could be used forlifesaving purposes." Indeed, the report suggests that it wouldbe a "tragedy" to allow "the sick child to die because of a moralor political objection to such cloning." Nevertheless, we shouldnote that many people would be morally uneasy about the use of aminor as a donor, regardless of whether the child were a resultof cloning. Even if this unease is justifiably overridden byother concerns, the "transplant scenario" may not present a morecompelling case for cloning than that of the infertile coupledesperately seeking a biological child.

Like stated previously, therapeutic cloning does not involve the creation of a live human being.
