Observer | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"Worries over the health of Dolly the sheep, the world's first clone, were set against regular rumours of human cloning (as yet unsubstantiated). While DNA testing became standard police procedure, no one was sure how they felt about its forthcoming use as a routine medical tool, available at your local GP's surgery, a fear symbolised by the spat over stolen DNA being used to prove Steve Bing's paternity of Liz Hurley's baby."
