ATTACK OF THE CLONES AND CLONING
Everyone's racing to point out how Attack of the Clones doesn't say anything about the theraputic cloning debate, but I think it does.

I couldn't help but think that it was no major loss if one of the cloned soldiers got killed. Somehow, his origin diminishes my perception of the dignity and sanctity of the clone's life. Maybe the problem's with my perception, but I can't help but think that advancements that lead me to regard life as cheap are a good thing.

I know, I know, this has more to do with reproductive cloning than theraputic cloning. (In theraputic cloning, the cloned ambryo is neccesarily destroyed). But it's still something to think about.
