Cloning Human Beings: Responding to the National Bioethics Advisory Commission's Report
Hastings Center Report. 1997 Sep-Oct; 27(5): 6-9.
In February of this year two figures were added to our daily life. Dolly, a cloned sheep, and her maker, Scottish scientist Ian Wilmut, could be found in our newspapers, on our televisions, across the Internet, and in our conversations. What Wilmut had done was indeed new, if not fantastic. By transferring the nucleus of a somatic cell from an adult animal into an egg from which the nucleus had been removed, Wilmut successfully cloned a mammal--a technique that had never before succeeded.
