Is cloning ethical? Can therapeutic cloning cure diseases? Should researchers use adult or embryonic stem cells? Should cloning be banned? Research fellows, the disabled, physicians, journalists and others put forward their varied opinions in essays reprinted from recent journals, newspapers and websites. An introduction briefly explains what cloning is and discusses the range of viewpoints, and each essay begins with an explanation of the writer's credentials and a summary of his or her argument. Charts, tables, and a few editorial cartoons augment the essays. Discussion questions for each chapter and an annotated list of organizations to contact are appended. Social studies and science students will appreciate the variety of opinions represented here for their debates and research reports. (Opposing Viewpoints). KLIATT Codes: SA--Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2006, Greenhaven, 176p. illus. bibliog. index.; (20% disc. for schools & libraries), Ages 15 to adult.
