Kathryn Lopez, over at NRO, has an excellent column on the human egg issue as it relates to cloning and the exploitation of women.

Jennifer is also the head of the Center for Bioethics and Culture, for which I consult.

Read Lopez’s column. It brings up important issues about the potential exploitation of women in the brave new world toward which we are careening, just one of the crucial issues that needs to be considered when deciding whether to countenance human cloning.
