In spring 1997 Scottish scientists surprised public with the news of cloning for the first time a sheep's cell-nucleus of a body cell. This way they produced a mammal with identical genotype of another adult animal. The news of cloned sheep Dolly's Birth was astonishing all over the world.
A lot of people reacted with anger and fear at the development of a method to reproduce genetic identical copies of grown life. A method that may be used even on human beings.
This news initiated lots of fantasies. Horror visions of doubles or resurrection as clones appeared in public discussions.

In case of ambiguity
The future, even the predetermined peril only reveal ethic principle, from which new duties can be deduced. (by Hans Jonas 1979)
"Human life is no free available mass of experiment, no real value."
