Gazzaniga on Cloning

Michael Gazzaniga, author of The Ethical Brain, and member of the President's Commission on Bioethics, make an argument for the therapeutic cloning in the NY Times today, saying that "The president's view is consistent with the reductive idea that there is an equivalence between a bunch of molecules in a lab and a beautifully nurtured and loved human who has been shaped by a lifetime of experiences and discovery. His view is a form of the 'DNA is destiny' story."

Hello. Dr.Gazzaniga's comment is interesting. I wrote about Gazzaniga's "The Ethical Brain" on my blog:

I am interested in Women's Bioethics Project. I will come visit from time to time.
