Rick Weiss in the Washington Post, January 17, 2002:
The [bioethics] council will be navigating a scientific and ethical landscape significantly more complex than the one that existed... last summer. In November, researchers announced that they had made the first human embryo clones, giving immediacy to warnings by religious conservatives and others that science is no longer serving the nation's moral will. At the same time, the United States was fighting a war to free a faraway nation from the grip of religious conservatives who were denounced for imposing their moral code on others.
