Warm Up

Tomorrow we kick off our first book Frankenstein.  Some believe that this old "horror" book is not still relevent today.  I would like to remind you of this.
Remember Dolly? 

Think there may be human examples of cloning out there already?  I do.  But even if there are not, there will be some soon.  Some scientist somewhere is going to clone a human at some point and there is probably little we can do to stop them.  What will that mean for the new child?  How will the child be treated?  Is the child even a real person?  Will everyone agree on this?

Still think Frankenstein is not relevent today?

  1. The idea of cloning makes me shudder. The idea of Frankenstein being real makes me shudder.

    Now to remember to download the book so that I can start reading it with you....:-P
