Human cloning

I am made very uneasy about human cloning, for whatever purpose. Innocence, once lost, can never be regained. As a human race we marvelled as we split the atom. The atomic bomb is one of the great scientific success stories of our time - if not the great success story of our time. While others cheered in New Mexico the man who, if anyone can claim to be the creator, Oppenheimer turned and said "I have become Death: Shatterer of Worlds". At least he knew what he had created.

Modern researches seem no longer to have the ability to realise the enormity of their creations.

Anyway, this NY Times Op-Ed motivated the above post.
