SA Law,Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Cloning: Stem Cell Research and Cloning in Context of Legal Status and Personhood

The specific focus of this book is to examine the intense debate on the moral and legal status of the embryo and fetus in South Africa. The most important findings are that current South African legislation remains fragmented and ineffective in the manner in which embryonic stem cell research and cloning are regulated. This finding leads to a summary of recommendations, which attempts to provide specific remedies in order to adapt the current regulatory framework in South Africa.
