Abstract

It surely is not an overstatement to say that the first successful cloning of a sheep in 1997 in Scotland can be described as a Copernican revolution - not only in medical ethics but also in man's world view. The question thus arises how long it will eventually take before a human being will be cloned This issue, however, foregrounds the ethical concern of whether a process that scientifically can be implemented and a result that can be achieved always ought to be executed Ofcourse there are many pro's as far as the cloning of a human being is concerned, but what about the con's? Focusing on this specific issue, it is attempted to find a provisional answer from a theological-ethical point of view.
