A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

The most intelligent person named Ramesh: That would be National Review's Ramesh Ponnuru who has an excellent, well-reasoned piece on human cloning.

An excerpt:


It is true, of course, that religious believers have been prominent among opponents of cloning. But in general, their position has not rested on doctrines about, say, ensoulment, still less on any belief that God has revealed, in some direct way, His opposition to cloning to them. If some opponents do happen to believe that the early embryo has a soul, that belief is more likely to be the result of their view that the embryo is a human being with intrinsic worth than the cause of that view.


Ponnuru is correct, at least, in describing the basis of my opposition to human cloning, and that of the majority of cloning opponents. It's based on reason, not religion. It's also the reason that I oppose abortion and euthanasia. To steal from a movie title: "Life is Beautiful," whether it's "wanted" or not.
