Human cloning, whether done to produce embryos for stem cells or to define the genetic identity of an individual person, is a form of biological slavery, and is condemned.

Couples need to be aware that techniques such as pre-implantation diagnosis, which is used in artificial fertilisation and leads to the destruction of embryos suspected of defects, reflects a growing "eugenic mentality". Unfortunately, there is an increasing number of cases in which couples with no fertility problems are using artificial means of procreation in order to engage in the genetic selection of their offspring.
