Argument: Human cloning divorces man from nature and natural processes
Environmentalists embrace an ethic of respect for nature and strive to demonstrate the interdependence of humans and our natural world. Proponents of cloning and inheritable modification, on the other hand, extol the virtues of “re-making Eden” --- of “improving” what nature has given us. For example, “designer babies” or pets that don’t shed lead us down a slippery slope toward the redesign of the rest of life. Indeed, if society allows the cloning of human beings, all other species are fair game for genetic manipulation."
