Editorial Reviews

The cloning of an adult sheep in Scotland is widely regarded as one of the great events of 1997. Dolly has sparked much debate, at the center of which is the question of human cloning and its scientific and ethical implications. New York Times science reporter Gina Kolata is here to reflect on the subject, drawing from her new book, Clone: The Road to Dolly and the Path Ahead. Then, Charlie talks to Lee Silver, a molecular biologist at Princeton University and author of Remaking Eden: Cloning and Beyond in a Brave New World, and Dr. Jon Gordon, researcher and professor of obstetrics and gynecology and geriatrics at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. They share their thoughts on this latest scientific marvel. Finally, actor Eli Wallach, who is currently receiving rave reviews in the off-Broadway production of Visiting Mr. Green, is on to discuss his 52 years on the stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of the two segments on Cloning November 11, 2007
This was an outstanding program. It is an example of what the Charlie Rose show is at its best. It informs , it teaches and one is able to learn from it in a true way. I have read a number of books on cloning, and also been troubled about the subject for a number of years. I nonetheless did not know and understand much of that which Gina Kolata, Lee Silver and Jeff Gordon spoke about here.
Kolata spoke about the cloning of Dolly , and how unexpected this was. She said that it opens the road to the eventual cloning of human beings, which she believes will happen. She talks about instances where cloning might be acceptable to most human beings. She speaks about cloning as a means of providing new organs to those who have serious organ damage. She tells of interesting dilemnas involved in certain medical cases.
Silver and Gordon also agree that human cloning is an inevitability. Kolata gave a ten to twenty year time- frame. Silver and Gordon agree that cloning unlikely in the next five years. The problem is to make the procedure a 'safe one' and not simply do trials whose failure brings human suffering and anguish.
No one talks about the moral and philosophical questions invlved in cloning or its implication for humanity as a whole. The focus is on the technical and the pragmatic. There is an agreement that wildcat experimentation to bring about a human clone is at this point nonethical.
All three experts surprised me by their seeming lack of disturbance about problems of human identity. They all seem to feel that a clone will be somehow a different human being than its parents.
It was instructive for me to see the way this kind of question is talked about within the scientific and medical community. But I felt also the subject was not probe to its end, and its greatest depth.
