The stem-cell cloning bill passed by the New Jersey legislature appears set to become law Sunday. According to Notre Dame law professor Gerard Bradley, “the legislation authorizes commercial traffic in the body parts of human beings ‘cultivated’ (the bill’s word) up to the moment of birth.”
Four members of the President’s Council on Bioethics wrote a letter to New Jersey Governor James McGreevey summarizing the implications of this horrific legislation:
Please pause to consider whose cadaver the tissue is to be derived from. It is … a human being … who would be brought into being by cloning and, presumably, implanted and permitted to develop to the desired stage of physical maturation for the purpose of being killed for the harvesting of his or her tissues.
What’s next–soylent green?
