human cloning

To replicate DNA and create asexually an identical human from a single common ancestor. This process is the same used in animal cloning, which is said to be so easy a layperson could do it. Human cloning is included in this dictionary to distinguish it from clone and to note the emergence of Web sites that offer, for example, to bring dead children back to life. (These services argue that it's not so different from in vitro fertilization.)
