Cloning humans - distorting the image of God?

Denis R. Alexander, June 2001   No comments

Price: £0.99 (free online)

This paper addresses the theological, relational and risk issues around individuals creating genetically identical copies of themselves. It is argued that cloning runs counter to the biblical teaching that humankind is made in the image of God. Cloning would divorce procreation from loving sexual union and generate a disturbing discontinuity in sibling and parental relationships, thereby undermining family and social structures.
