Human Cloning

The Society for the Study of Reproduction supports the following “Voluntary Moratorium on Cloning of Human Beings.”—November 1997.


The Society for Developmental Biology declares a voluntary five-year moratorium on cloning human beings, where “cloning human beings” is defined as the duplication of an existing or previously existing human being by transferring the nucleus of a differentiated, somatic cell into an enucleated human oocyte, and implanting the resulting product for intrauterine gestation and subsequent birth.
