  • Christian views on cloning
    • The Catholic Church
      • Believes that research on cloning human embryos is immoral and unnecessary
        • It is immoral because it involves the deliberate creation of human life for research purposes
      • The use of human embryos for cloning reduces them to no more than a commodity
      • It removes all dignity from an individual life at the very earliest stages
    • The Church of England
      • Suggests that therapeutic cloning may be thought of as ethical as it does not result in another human life
      • The ability to discover and understand is given from God. We should use it for things God would want
      • Cloning may be unnatural but so are transplants and they are used to save lives
