Summary: Human cloning raises the most profound questions about human nature, our faith in ourselves, and our ability to make decisions that could significantly alter the character of humanity. In this exciting and accessible book, Gregory Pence offers a candid and sometimes humorous look at the arguments for and against human cloning. Originating a human being by cloning, Pence boldly argues, should not strike fear in our hearts but should be examined as a reasonable reprodu
ctive option for couples. Pence considers how popular culture has influenced the way we think about cloning, and he presents a lucid and non-technical examination of the scientific research and relevant moral issues in the cloning debate. This book is a must-read for anyone who is concerned about the impact of technology on human life and for those with interests in medical ethics, sociology, and public policy.


"The best-reasoned set of ethical arguments [about human cloning] yet published." -- The Gene Letter, August, 1998 "Occasionally, a new book evokes a sigh of relief. Pence . . . wants to know how a consensus on human cloning can be said to have been reached when only one side of the argument about it has appeared." -- Booklist
