The article discusses the shift in the debate on the ethical aspects of cloning to its reproductive and research uses. It has been observed that the cloning debate was merged into the debate around embryonic stem-cell research. Also, signs are emerging that new debate is taking a different course from that on reproductive cloning because of the potential of stem-cell research to improve human health.
