Scientists plan human cloning clinic in the United States
...rizon seems undisputed. Since Professor Ian Wilmut cloned
Dolly the sheep in 1997, the feat has been duplicated in other mammals. Many believe that human cloning efforts are already taking place undercover in some countries. There is currently a US ban on federal funding of human cloning efforts but no law...
