This is a semantic game that anti-cloning people play. They call cloning to create children for infetile people “reproductive cloning” and cloning of cells to create tissues and organs and for other research purposes “therapeutic cloning.” The problem with the terminology is that infertility is a disease, and the use of cloning to cure it is very, very therapeutic. So ALL cloning is “therapeutic.” By implying that it is not, people who oppose cloning are trying to skew the debate by controlling the terminology. Don’t fall into that trap!
