ABSTRACT
The article relates that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has effectively interdicted procreative cloning. For the indefinite future, procreative cloning in the United States is a nonrisk. This circumstance is not a secret here revealed, but a matter of public, if obscure, information. The story has been masked by the words of members of the United States Congress and commentators. Lamenting the absence of anticloning legislation, and sometimes warning of an imminent hazard, they have left the impression that procreative cloning is unregulated. Among those upon whom this misimpression has been visited have been scientists concerned to warn against procreative cloning.
