“Which period is the dawn of a human life? The moment of birth or conception or when one says ‘I’ by pointing to oneself for the first time? The development of cloning techniques which make use of human egg cells and embryos compels us to consider bioethics deeply enough once more. Images on the Announcement to Maria impress me as vividly portraying the beginning of life, in addition to their religious meaning. As something that triggers your contemplation on the theme, I bound as a book the following materials: 2 Pictures the Announcement and St. Family by Simone Martini and The Law Concerning Regulation Relating to Human Cloning Techniques and Other Similar Techniques in Japan and the proceedings of council on bioethics.”
