Human Cloning

The A. first discusses the various (technoscientific, financial, spiritual) aspects which are connected with the attempts of the cloning of human beings. He then strives to morally qualify a behaviour which deprives a new human being of the unique newness that is proper to each begotten person and his filial relation to his parents. The specific malice of cloning lies in the perversion which is inflicted on parenthood and filiation. The moral discernment which is here proposed follows the teaching of Donum vitae: it is based on the metaphysical arguments from which the instruction draws its inspiration.
