Summary

Lori Andrews passed her bar exam the day the first test-tube baby was born. Since then she has become the world's most visible expert on the legal and ethical implications of reproductive technology. She is sought after to assess the entanglements of surrogate motherhood, the ethics of creating babies from dead men's sperm, and the propriety of human cloning. In this provocative memoir, Andrews tells how she has explored the ethical and legal ramifications of a vast array of developments in this exploding and unregulated field. Along the way, she addresses profound and disturbing questions: Is a human embryo property, a person, or something else entirely? Should parents be able to buy genes for superior intelligence or athletic ability for their children? Should doctors and scientists be allowed to profit from patenting their patients' genes? Over the last twenty years, Andrews has faced all these issues. In The Clone Age, she unmasks the bizarre motives and methods of a new breed of doctors and scientists and addresses the wrenching issues we face as venture capital floods medical research, technology races ahead of legal and ethical ground rules, and ordinary people struggle to maintain both human dignity and their own emotional balance.
