There is no moral concern regarding cloning human beings since human embryos, which develop into a baby, are "only a handful of cells," argued President Obama's newly confirmed regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein.

"If scientists will be using and cloning embryos only at a very early stage when they are just a handful of cells (say, before they are four days old), there is no good reason for a ban (on cloning)," wrote Sunstein, who was confirmed by the Senate last week as administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

"It is silly to think that 'potential' is enough for moral concern. Sperm cells have 'potential' and (not to put too fine a point on it) most people are not especially solicitous about them," Sunstein wrote in a review of the 2003 book "Our Posthuman Future" by Francis Fukuyama.

Sperm cells have potential??!! For what? To be cleaned up off the sheets or to become PART of the biological process that results in the creation of a human life. In and of themselves they cannot and will not ever become a child.

That mass of cells that Sunstein wants to play with, now that's a different thing entirely. That mass of cells, barring some outside force from stopping them, will be born, love, eat , drink, think and die. It is human. It may not be cute and lovable like it will be in 9 months or so but the same can be said about its appearance 80 years from now. Yet, the octogenarian is every bit as human as the new born.

Except in the insane world of those that believe human life is valuable only in a utilitarian sense. Does it support the collective? Obviously, the mass of cells and the octogenarian have no real material value. They can't work or pay taxes so their value is reduced to experimentation. Their death will actually be a positive. They won't be able to put any additional strain on the collective.

This is what we elected last November; the moral progeny of Sanger, Hitler and Mengele. We will be held responsible.
