Top 5 quotes by Leon Kass

Almost everybody is enthusiastic about the promise of biotechnology to cure disease and to relieve suffering.

Genetics is crude, but neuroscience goes directly to work on the brain, and the mind follows.

We do restrict so-called reproductive freedom. We do not allow polygamy, we do not allow incest, we do not allow the buying and selling of babies.

The neuroscience area - which is absolutely in its infancy - is much more important than genetics.

In cloning, in contrast, reproduction is asexual - the cloned child is the product not of two but of one.
