Ebrahim Rostami, Mohammadreza Sharafatpeima


Human cloning or human tagging (simulation) is a method in which human fetus is cloned for research in laboratory. In this
method, after lapsing 5 days from forming sperm, special cells which named as fundamental cells are taken for cloning. These
cells have ability to produce cell in human body. The aim of research is to discuss human cloning from civil law point of view.
Based on data collected in Iran's law, there is not opposition with cloning, since treatment cloning can be origin services like
prevention reproduce incomplete children, prevention from genetically diseases. But human cloning could not be cited as
authorized method for human reproduction. In human cloning, the children cloned is intimate with one who given cell and this
intimacy avoids from marriage. And about intimacy of children cloned, the children shall have Iranian nationality. About
illegitimate as for unification scale, the illegitimacy and customary relation between children cloned and father are regarded in
Iran's law. About legitimacy of children, issuance of forgery deed and heritage and other relatives are not difference by natural
methods. The child cloned has not difference from other persons. In the case of lacking legitimacy of cloning, we believe that
child doesn't heir from father and mother but in the case of marriage, he/she heirs.
