Further proof of my assertion that cloning is about far more than embryonic stem cells and will not long remain in the Petri dish comes now from the United Kingdom, in which a Parliamentary bioethics panel has suggested that reproductive cloning be permitted, such license to include the creation of designer babies and sex selection. The panel also opined that it would be perfectly splendid to implant human embryos into animals for research.

As I keep saying, the Science and Bioethics Establishments have become highly radicalized and ideological. They perceive cloned unborn human life as fodder, a mere commodity. Self restraint is not in their dictionary. They force society to place reasonable moral limits on biotechnology, and then without a hint of irony gripe that such actions are “anti science.”
