In this George Mason University video, Karol Boudreaux of the Mercatus Center hosts a group of panelists in a discussion about the ethical debates that engulf cloning and stem cell research. When President Bush announced in 2001 his decision to allow federal funds to be used for research on stem cells, he made two other striking comments. Stating his decision was based partly on the fact that 'stem cells have the ability to regenerate themselves indefinitely' he said he's 'strongly opposed to human cloning.' How do we separate the stem cell research debate from debate over human cloning and genetic screening? What ethical questions surround them? What are the pros and cons of cloning and stem cell research? Is there a viable compromise that both pro-lifers and pro-biotech researchers can accept? Panelists include: Richard Doerflinger, deputy director for the Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Kathi E. Hanna, consultant at Science & Health Policy, and Jim Olds, director of the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study.
