Banning an activity by legalizing it

Yeah, I know it sounds crazy. But that is exactly what the Hatch-Feinstein “ban on cloning bill” did: it legalized cloning. And not just cloning, but the buying of embryos for cloning and harvesting. Read the article about it at Discovery Institute. And this happened a few years ago! I had no idea. I also did not know that this has been going on in other countries (The Netherlands, for example). And fetal cloning is legal in New Jersey? Is that what I just read? Can that be right?

I’ll post more on this and the subject of bioethics as I discover more this week. Bioethics. Seems like we ought to call what we’re doing “bio-lack-of-ethics”. Good grief.
