"We are learning to do a great many clever things," G. K. Chesterton famously observed. "Unless we are much mistaken the next great task will be to learn not to do them." Our contributors help us to explore how this aphorism applies to reproductive cloning and research cloning for embryonic stem cells.

James Marcum explains the process of human cloning and examines how "the heated debate in our society has been fueled by misconceptions and hyperbole on both sides." Much of the hype originates in "the cultural geography, the social enthusiasms, of our time" that Allen Verhey describes.

"Who is funding cloning research? Who will reap the benefits?" Lisa Cahill asks. For couples who endure infertility, Maura Ryan seeks a spirituality that sees "worship as a context for acquiring the grace to live into involuntary childlessness with hope and dignity."
