Summary
Even as some governments and activists work to prevent human cloning, it can be assumed that, in a laboratory somewhere on this planet, scientists are moving closer to cloning a human being. This program offers an extraordinary and at times unsettling look at rapid advances in what is perhaps the most controversial area of genetic science. Both sides of the ethical debate over cloning are presented, along with issues such as the unauthorized cloning of celebrities, the possibility of "farming" body parts to treat disease and disability, and the use of cloning to preserve endangered species.
