Legal Ethical and Moral Considerations

The use of these powerful techniques to facilitate reproduction in both humans and animals (the techniques can be used in cattle and pigs, and in the conservation of endangered wildlife) must be balanced against legal, ethical, and moral concerns. For example, would it be permissible to revive extinct animal species? Although a Jurassic Park-like scenario to reanimate extinct dinosaurs is not scientifically credible at this time, what if it became possible to use this technology to form embryos and clone an extinct mammoth, or the passenger pigeon? And what if we can do this for extinct humans? Just because we can develop the capability, would it be acceptable? What are the ethics involved?
