Cloning Issues
Results of the Washington Post Style Invitational, in which readers were asked to come up with intriguing questions to be considered by President Clinton's special commission to study the moral and practical effects of cloning: Are the Pope and his clone both infallible? What if they disagree about something? Can you clone Alan Greenspan, or does it have to be LIVING tissue? If Larry King clones himself and interviews himself on his show, wouldn't that pretty much make nuclear war something we could all look forward to? If I have sex with my clone, will I go blind? If the DNA from the bloody glove were cloned and produced a baby O.J. Simpson, then could we maybe get an actual guilty verdict? If Hare Krishnas start cloning themselves, how will the rest of us find out? If you cloned Henry IV, would he be Henry V or Henry IV Jr. or wait!-- Henry IV part II? If Michael Jackson is cloned, is it against the law for him to play with himself as a child? Would there be a market for genetic "factory seconds" and "irregulars"? Could they clone Al Gore, or would he have to be grafted? Is it possible to make a clone of Kate Moss and then attach the two together to make a regular-sized person? Sure, she'd have two heads, but that would still be way more normal. Would it work if I binged and my clone purged? Would it be ethical to dig up the remains of our founding fathers, create clones from the bone cells, and place them in a theme park called Clonial Williamsburg?
