More on the Brave New Jersey

Here is NRO’s Kathryn Jean Lopez on New Jersey’s pro-cloning legislation. A decent, quick read. Of particular interest is her quote from Princeton’s Robert P. George who points out that the bill allows for cloning human embryos so long as they are destroyed before birth, leading him to ask (quoting from the piece):

[W]hat if a gestating woman has second thoughts and decides not to abort the developing fetus? Would a court be asked to enforce a contract for abortion? We hope and trust that no court would do that. But then we would have what the sponsors of the legislation say they oppose: the birth of human clones.

Yes, New Jersey, what about that?
