The cloning of human beings is now very close to reality. This possibility is one of the unbelievable potential benefits for all of us. Unfortunately the initial debate on this issue has been dominated by misleading, sensationalized accounts in the news and negative emotional reactions derived from inaccurate science fiction. Much of the negativity about human cloning is based simply on the breathtaking novelty of the concept rather than on any reality undesirable consequence. On balance, human cloning would have overwhelming advantages of regularity in a reasonable way. A ban on human cloning by misinformed public would be a sorry episode in human history.
