Since the Supreme court has effectively taken the federal government out
of the abortion issue, based on the 9th and 10th amendments, any
reproductive issue should really be fought at the state level. If a
state's citizens decide to pass a state constitutional amendment
outlawing cloning, it is their right to do so, as passing such an
amendment transfers their indiviual rights under the 9th amendment to
the state under the 10th amendment.
