Catholic teaching regarding human cloning is closely linked to the sanctity of life, the status of the embryo and the meaning of sex and marriage. It addresses the tensions between the relief of suffering - which can be sought in good or bad ways - and respect for every human being. Anthony McCarthy sets out the scientific background to cloning, explains the Church’s teaching, and examines secular arguments for and against human cloning.
