The Clone Age (Cloning)

Clone Age, The (Cloning)

"Recommended. An examination of the legal and ethical issues surrounding clone research, especially appropriate for schools with bioethics programs or courses. There are interesting microscopic lab techniques displayed, including the actual cloning of a lamb cell. Also, in a fascinating twist, this program presents two men suffering from debilitating diseases who meet with a research scientist to discuss the progress of therapeutic cloning." -EMRO Review
First we meet Matilda, a frolicking, happy lamb. But Matilda is different, she's Australia's equivalent of Dolly, the first cloned mammal. These cloned sheep represent a giant leap the world of medicine has seen in recent years. Cloning could be the answer to ending debilitating diseases like Parkinson's and leukemia; however, there's also the other idea to consider: that perfect humans could be created. This highly controversial report thoroughly explores the cloning process, as well as the heated debate that is raging through modern medical history.
