  • Sher Bahadur Senior Research Officer, Department of Medical Research, Rehman Medical College, Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,


The fast emerging pace of biotechnology has crossed some
boundaries of culture, belief, and ethics. Cloning is one
current example where lots of debates are going on, as it
has become difficult to find solutions to various issues
regarding reproductive cloning. The health risks to human
beings and loss of dignity remain the central debate. There
may well be other logical and legal problems regarding
reproductive cloning. Furthermore, scientists do not have

enough information about the impact of cloning on mental
and biological welfare of the clones. The eugenic concept
could be used on animals for the beneficent of human being.
