US Congress considers human cloning ban: "Dr Panos Zavos -- who belongs to an international consortium on human cloning -- said it was inevitable that the technology would produce a baby within two years and Congress should be ensuring instead that the science was properly developed." What I don't understand is who is going to want to raise a cloned child. I really wouldn't think it would be that popular even if it were readily available. I mean, how many humans are there that you would want to duplicate, exactly, instead of taking your chances and having the satisfaction of bringing your own seed into the world. Isn't that one of the big motivations for having children (actually, the motivation, at the biological level)? I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who would volunteer to have the next Tiger Woods or something, but no matter what, it's not going to be cheap to get grade-A, world-renowned DNA. And anything less is going to be a hard sell. Genetic engineering, I can understand. But cloning? I don't think it's anything to worry about.
