Bioethics of Human Cloning

I have reprinted the article in the following post concerning bioethics of human cloning. Although this is an obscure and remote topic, the article forcefully ,makes the point that science can not operate in an ethical vacuum
The Lubavitcher Rebbe made the important point that the technical evolution we have witnessed in our time must be matched by moral advancement. The former chief Rabbi Immanuel Jakobovits of Great Britain, was renowned as a trailblazer in the field of bioethics. Science bereft of moral guidance is unthinkable. The first television station in the world opened in Nazi Germany in 1935. Believers in a caring G-d do not want scientific acrobatics. They want science and technology in service to a humanity that is morally worthy of them.
