"Cloning is an asexual form of reproduction. All the child’s genes would come from a body cell of a single individual . . . ."
"If a man cloned himself, would the child be that man’s son or his twin brother? It would be neither, it would be a new category of biological relationship: his clone."
"Societies have the right and responsibility to decide which uses of such screening technologies should be allowed and which should be banned."
"Many people assume that germline engineering is necessary to allow couples at risk of passing on a genetic disease to avoid doing so. This is not so."

Which phrase best defines "annotated bibliography"?

a bibliography that is typed on expensive paper with a specified font
a summary and evaluation of each potential source for a research project
a handwritten summary of the location of research sources
a day-by-day log of all bibliographic sources for a research project

a summary and evaluation of each potential source for a research project

Read the excerpt below from the source material and the bibliography card. Then, answer the question that follows.

Excerpt from "Human Cloning and Genetic Modification":

1. Reproductive cloning uses the cloning procedure to produce a clonal embryo which is implanted in a woman’s womb with intent to create a fully formed living child—a clone. . . .

2. Therapeutic cloning uses the cloning procedure to produce a clonal embryo, but instead of being implanted in a womb and brought to term it is used to generate stem cells. . . .

The purpose of using clonal embryos to generate stem cells is to allow creation of tissues or organs that the clonal donor can use without having these tissues or organs rejected by their body’s immune system.

Most people oppose reproductive cloning. Some people oppose reproductive cloning but support therapeutic cloning. Others oppose therapeutic cloning as well as reproductive cloning, either because they are opposed to the destruction of embryos as a matter of principle, or because they feel the acceptance of therapeutic cloning will set us on a slippery slope to the acceptance of reproductive cloning and human genetic manipulation.

It is possible to support stem cell research and still oppose research involving therapeutic cloning.
