    human cloning. Human cloning can be done but not actually performed yet, as in a human clone being born. At first it started with animals, but then it moved to human embryos. Scientists figured out a way to make it possible to clone a human being. Scientists do this through stem cells as well as harvesting women’s eggs. Scientist grow these embryos in petri dishes and once they are done experimenting, scientist destroy these embryos that could be human beings. This is where a big controversy begins
