(ORDO NEWS) — In the near future, scientists will create a technology to switch to artificial human reproduction. Humanity has great prospects in creating clones, for example, those who have not been with us for a long time. The object of cloning may be a famous person, and then questions of medical ethics will arise, which sooner or later will have to be solved by scientists.
Researchers from the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at Stanford University spoke about this work.
American experts in the field of cell biology have approached the possibility of isolating viable sperm from human stem cells, which can later be used to fertilize the grown eggs. It looks impressive, but there is an ethical question about the ongoing study of the condition of the banned cloned children.
In addition, the public may be against the so-called “designer” children. It may happen that doctors, without the knowledge of a person, get his biomaterial for the subsequent creation of eggs or semen. Realizing the complexity of this situation, scientists believe that the time has come to revise some of the norms on cloning.
Some researchers believe that there have long been clones of people in the world who quietly live among us, but this fact cannot be confirmed, since the procedure for cloning a person is illegal.
