"By including articles that cover a wide range of analytical perspective and moral positions, this volume provides a good overview of the debate on human cloning. George Annas argues that human cloning should be banned because it "radically alters the very definition of what it is to be be human" Michael Tooley finds it morally acceptable, and points out its potential benefits to society. Jan Hellerargues that the common religious objections against human cloning lack substantive moral support. The other three contributors aim primarily to situate the discussion within a larger historical framework." - Quarterly Review of Biology
"A volume in the Biomedical Ethics Review series, this book examines cloning from a number of disciplinary perspectives, including historical, ethical, and religious. In the context of a rapidly burgeoning literature on the topic of cloning and related issues, this addition is welcome in bringing together these different approaches. ...The value of this collection of paper lies at least partly in its reflection on the main themes and trends; partly in its analysis of forms of argument and their applicability to the topic." -International Digest of Health Legislation
