This process seemed to be the limit for this type of technology. However, the cloning of man has been discussed for decades, and questioned if it was possible. Human cloning is not ethical due to interfering with God’s creations, man becoming the new creator, and violating the identification of mankind.

It does not refer to the natural conception and delivery of identical twins” (Science Daily). The first exposure to animal cloning was completed on July 5, 1996, when Dolly, a Finn Dorset Sheep was created at the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh, Scotland. The sheep was the very first mammal ever to be cloned from an adult cell. However, the sheep had multiple health complications and side effects. This shows how comprehensive the process of DNA cloning is. As if it was never supposed to be worked upon. DNA cloning has been experimented and pursued upon for many years, whether it is the legality or the process. The legality of DNA cloning is accepted in the United States, however the process is indeed extremely precise and performed early at the embryo stage. Cloning is on the way to save many lives from
