That’s Not The Danger, For Sure


Remarkable op-ed piece in the New York Times today by a bioethicist warning that people are in danger of confusing “reproductive cloning” and “therapeutic cloning.” First of all, one of the biggest dangers in the Clonaid presumptive fraud is it has given folks on Capitol Hill who oppose only some cloning (the “reproductive” kind) the chance to push through a half-baked cloning ban. Secondly, if you read many of the press reports, it is that false dichotomy that reigns these days. The Kass Commission does a clear job setting out key defintions–that report is a must read for anyone who cares about the future of human life and should be required reading for any reporting covering these issues.
