Obama is an Enemy of Science and of Human Cloning

A Fox News report quotes President Obama as saying:

"We cannot ever tolerate misuse or abuse. And we will ensure that our government never opens the door to the use of cloning for human reproduction," Obama said. "It is dangerous, profoundly wrong, and has no place in our society, or any society."

Unfortunately, Obama is totally wrong. I predict that in 50 or 100 years human cloning technology will be used to save lives on an almost routine basis.

Sadly, the entire biotech industry, with all it patents and trademarks, will move overseas to where human cloning is legal. Patients from the USA will all be practicing medical tourism to go save their lives in Asia or Thailand or India or somewhere where science is more important than political polls.

Obama's wrongheaded attitude will delay the cure for infertility, and will make people on waiting lists for kidneys, livers, and hearts, continue to suffer and likely die, when lifesaving technology could be available.
