OXFORD - The British Medical Association is calling for a rational debate on cloning in a bid to clear up public confusion about the different types of cloning and its potential uses.

The physician association is aiming to educate the public about the misrepresentation of cloning as seen through the "powerful negative images of cloning" as portrayed in such popular media as Aldous Huxley's Brave New World and The Boys from Brazil, the film about a cloning of Hitler.
