Pence, Gregory E. : University of Alabama at Birmingham
Gregory E. Pence is a medical ethicist with twenty years of experience reviewing significant cases in bioethics. He was one of the few bioethicists in North America to have publicly opposed President Clinton's ban on human cloning. He is professor of philosophy at the University of Alabama, Birmingham, and the author of Who's Afraid of Human Cloning? (Rowman & Littlefield, 1998) He lives in Birmingham, Alabama.
"Flesh of My Flesh distinguishes itself from the multitude of 'cloning' books on the market. An enjoyable overview of the ethics of cloning...a good introduction to the subject."
