Ama On Cloning

Well, at least they are calling it cloning. The American Medical Association’s statement endorsing research cloning (clone and kill) is a huge nudge to the White House and Congress to get a ban passed and signed ASAP. It’s a tragedy and a crime that it hasn’t happened yet. Even if you disagree with the administration and me on “research cloning,” I imagine you’re with me (most of America is) on the need for limiting people’s ability to toy with reproductive cloning, which they will, under current law, just as soon as is scientifically possible. But, I would add, this distinction is bogus if you believe a human embryo is life in its earliest stage. And, again, it’s a tragedy there is rarely honest debate on the cloning issue, and that the U.S. does not have sound laws on this key human-life issue.
