辯字~moral vs. ethic
It's not enough to say that I, as an authority who have thought long and hard about this, declare that human cloning should never occur. That's a moral statement, it's not an ethical statement.

'MORAL/IMMORAL' applies to situations/actions/behavior/character which are considered to be acceptable/unacceptable by your local (whether country or state) society's opinions.
(e.g. Generally, old people in my town believe it is immoral to have sex before marriage.)
'ETHICAL/UNETHICAL' applies to situations/actions/behavior which are idealistic world standards of 'right' and 'wrong'.
(e.g. Many people believe that testing on animals is unethical.)
I cannot see how somebody's character can be unethical.
If anybody can, please post.
Do you get it?
