In 1996 the birth of ‘Dolly’, the first mammal cloned, has opened discussions among biologists and the public about the desirability of such a technology (Terragni 1999, Dijck 1998). This is surprising when we think that cloning was not a new technology. The first experiments of nuclear transfer with amphibians (Rana pipiens and Xenoplus laevis) were performed in the United States and Britain during 1950s (Gordon & Colman 2000:743-746). Nuclear transfer experiments were performed in amphibians in the 1960s, in mice in the 1970s, in sheep in the 1980s, and in monkeys in the 1990s. In this paper I deal with ethical issues related to human reproductive cloning. I will claim that we have no reason to oppose human reproductive cloning a priori.
