By Nivia on April 8, 2005
Format: Hardcover
The focus of Cloning and the future of Human Embryo Research, edited by Paul Lauritzen is questioning "whether cloning ethical"". This book is a collection of research-based essays by various authors who have credentials related to cloning. Lauritzen uses essays that come from a moral standpoint. Lauritzen suggests that "it is better to see Dolly's birth as an intermediate step- perhaps the penultimate step" (4). I believe that this means that there is more to come in research of cloning. The book is well researched. I like the book because it pushes you to challenge the arguments. Although the book's biggest weakness is failure to recognize that the discussion on cloning should be part science and part morals. After reading the book, the chapters provide excellent information, because they are well argued and suffiently open-ended enough to include both sides of the arguments.

Format: Hardcover
This collection of essays provides immensely valuable information for those concerned by current debates over cloning, stem cell research, assisted reproduction, and the general march of technology in biomedical ethics. This book comes highly recommended by many in the bioethics community. These debates should include not just professional bioethicists, but anyone concerned with the state of our democracy and our humanity in these crucial issues for the twenty-first century.
