    Re: Which type of judges would support human cloning?

    As for what "type" of judges would support cloning - depends entirely on the "pressing" issue that it came to the court wrapped in. What dire straight was ginned up to get the camel's nose under the tent.

    By the way, human cloning isn't just one issue, but a never-ending sack of issues.

    That postponement could end up being extremely long. Its very hard to iron out the bugs of human cloning if ethical restrictions on human testing prevent standard research techniques.

    Think globally. Do you honestly believe that if it can be done, no one anywhere with the requisite skills will do it? You already know, many freaks with the requisite dough will pay for it.

    Hell, since all testing on humans of this sort is unethical, it'll probably be the rouge human clone we learn from.

    I mean socially we're having problem with funding stem cell research. Human cloning is a few steps up the ladder.

For a trigillionaire to be able to reproduce himself would mean he would have to recreate every instance of his life which means time travel backwards which is physically impossible.

    I suppose you also want to ban older people from having kids while you're at it? They have a higher rate of problems.

    The bottom line is it is none of your business to decide what level of risk is acceptable.

    There's a "cyrogenic freezing" facility in Arizona, and even Walt Disney was stoopid enough to have his remains frosted.

    You think there's no rich idijit anywhere on the planet dumb enough to want to be cloned? S'rly?

    Well, a lack of funds may not be a barrier, if some cadre' of rich people wants cloning.

    It's only an "issue" to wing nuts, religious extremists, and other assorted nanny state bedwetters.

    I disagree. I think society has every right (on some ethically-challenging items) to tell scientists that IF they can, they still may not.

    Remember Octomom?
