    Which type of judges would support human cloning?

    Which sort of judges or Supreme Court justices would be more sympathetic to human cloning, stem cell research, or other sorts of bioethics issues? Liberal judges or conservative judges?

    What do you all think?

    Let's imagine this scenario: Congress takes the advice of President Bush's bioethics advisor Leon Kass and enacts a total ban on all human cloning. Which type of judge would be more likely to strike it down?

    probably one who understands that congress doesn't have that power. that could be Justice Thomas who actually respects the 10th amendment. It could be Justice Ginsburg who has had major health issues

    What you said about Thomas does not ring true. I am sure he could. One up with a clever bit of sophistry to justify a cloning ban, considering what an activist he is. Frankly your naïveté surprises me. Is it an act or sincere?

    When you have filed briefs with the USSC or argued cases in front of any federal court then get back to me about how much you know about the Justices. Your pronouncements are idiotic and have no basis in fact

    It's none of your business what courts I may or may not have files briefs in, and until you've argued cases in the supreme court you are in no position of superior knowledge. You're not even admitted to the Supreme Court are you?

    you aren't a lawyer and you have admitted that before. there are people on this board who know I am an attorney and I have had numerous federal appellate cases.

    I don't really care what you think about me, TD, but you should try to keep your own story straight. You know precious little about the SCOTUS. Have you ever even been to DC on business?

    You're a funny guy TD.

    Since most of the judges on the Supreme Court are less likely to rule based upon any consistent legal principles than upon their personal political views, I would suggest that liberal judges would be more likely to strike it down. This is for the simple reason that I think people who are ideologically liberal are more likely to regard technology as inherently good for its own sake, whereas people who are ideologically conservative are more likely to be worried about the bioethics of new technology.

    I can't. This is important.
