Abstract

Excerpt

Books and articles about human cloning are rapidly filling bookstore shelves. There are a number of very good edited essay collections such as Martha C. Nussbaum and Cass R. Sunstein’s Clones and Clones: Facts and Fantasies About Human Cloning (W.W. Norton and Company, 1998), Gregory E. Pence’s Flesh of My Flesh: The Ethics of Cloning Humans: A Reader (Rowman and Littlefield, 1998), reviewed on this web site on April 21, 2000, Glenn C. McGee’s The Human Cloning Debate (Berkeley Hills Books, 2000), and Barbara MacKinnon’s Human Cloning: Science, Ethics, and Public Policy. (University of Illinois Press, 2000) to name but a few. Michael C. Brannigan’s Ethical Issues in Human Cloning is the latest edition to this burgeoning genre. There are so many interesting articles exploring various ethical aspects of human cloning being published these days that there is clearly room for Brannigan’s collection, even though a number of the essays contained in these collections is anthologized in more than one of the above volumes.
