Books A true picture of the benefits of human cloning are not being debated properly because they are being obscured by the literary referencing of Dr Leon Kass, a bioethecist who has the ear of George Bush Jr. according to The New Yorker: "Kass's vision is dismally remote from what actually goes on in the nation's laboratories. There are no wild-eyed wizards with perfection potions. Instead, medical scientists stare at diseases against which frustratingly little progress has been made, despite years of dedicated research. While Kass conjures a world of lab-bred James Bonds, two hundred thousand Americans live with spinal-cord injuries, a million and a half have Parkinson's, and four million have Alzheimer's."
