Advances made in cloning and stem cell research could lead to new treatments for many illnesses, yet there are those who question the ethics of cloning. Where could cloning take us in the future and why does it remain such a controversial subject? This book looks at the developments that have been made and examines the debate surrounding this issue. The information comes from a variety of sources, including government reports and statistics, newspapers and magazine articles, surveys and polls, academic research and literature from charities and lobby groups; articles have been tailored to an 11 to 14 age group. Additionally, at the end of each chapter are two pages of activities relating to the articles and issues raised in that chapter.
