Genetic Crossroads
September 19th, 2000

"Perhaps [the] most compelling [reason to clone a human]
is cloning a dying child if this is what the grieving
parents want. But this should not be permitted. Not only
does this encourage the parents to produce one child in
the image of another, it also encourages all of us to
view children as interchangeable commodities. The death
of a child thus need no longer be a singular human
tragedy, but rather an opportunity to try to duplicate
the no longer priceless deceased child."

--George Annas, Some Choice: Law, Medicine, and the Market
(New York: Oxford University Press, 1998, pages 12-13)
