Summary
"In a new book building on his classic Who's Afraid of Human Cloning? pioneering bioethicist Gregory E. Pence chronicles the many developments in human and other forms of cloning since the birth and death of the famed Dolly." "Pence continues to stand alone in advocating a reasoned view of cloning." "Pence rebuts the growing chorus of nay sayers headed by Leon Kass, chairman of the President's Council on Bioethics, who attack the biomedical sciences, and he explains why cloning will save endangered species and beloved pets and help future children and people with degenerative diseases. Cloning after Dolly is a must read for anyone seeking to keep pace with biotechnological advances in a post-Dolly world."--Jacket
