Description
Book jacket/back: "Will we soon be faced with a million Michael Jordans, a million Bill Gateses, or a million Saddam Husseins? Will wealthy individuals be able to create genetic copies of themselves which could give them a kind of immortality? Or will the copies (perhaps produced without heads) be kept in storage to provide replacement organs?"--BOOK JACKET. "These dizzying and, to some, nightmarish scenarios have suddenly become very real possibilities within our lifetime, following the successful cloning of a sheep by Scottish scientists in 1997."--BOOK JACKET. "Cloning: For and Against includes readings on all sides of the issues: by scientists, journalists, ethicists, religious leaders, and legal experts. These readings have been carefully selected to give a fair representation of the opposing points of view, enabling readers to test the strengths and weaknesses of divergent arguments, the better to make up their own minds on these controversial issues."
