Where before, if a person needed an organ transplant they had to be placed on a waiting list, it is fast becoming a possibility that technology can develop one needed right away. Though this is not an option available to the public as yet, science is fully exploring all areas of the possibilities involved with cloning. In fact, for some organ transplants it is going to be possible sooner than others, although science still has a ways to go and it has to have FDA approval and all ethical considerations made beforehand.

It may comprise of genes, cells, tissues or the whole organisms (Donnellan, 2004. p6). According to section 302.1 of the human Cloning Prohibition Act, human cloning is defined as “asexual reproduction, that is carried out by introducing the nuclear material of a human somatic cell into a fertilized or unfertilized oocyte whose nucleus has been removed or inactivated to reproduce a living organism (at any stage of development) with human or predominantly human genetic constitution”.
