The interplay of science, ethics, policy and society contribute to our understanding of and relation with human cloning. Genetic science and technology at the end of the twentieth century has permitted successful cloning of mammals and other animals. Such advancement has raised key ethical issues regarding the prospect of cloning human beings. Evaluation of these issues has led to policies aimed at regulating this novel technology. In tum, these policies strive to prepare our society for the scientific possibilities and ethical implications of human cloning.by Faisal Reza.Thesis (B.S.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Program in Science, Technology, and Society, 2003.Includes bibliographical references (leaves 73-74)
