Presidential bioethics panel to examine cloning

WASHINGTON - With its chairman declaring that "the very nature of what it means to be human" was at issue, a presidential bioethics panel on Thursday began an examination of cloning that is expected to shape the government's response to the first successful cloning of an adult animal. Protestant and Catholic theologians who appeared before the 18-member panel uniformly opposed the creation of new human beings through biotechnology, with a Lutheran scholar telling them, "A child should be a gift and not a product."
