Senator Ashley Butler is a quintessential southern demagogue, whose support of traditional American values includes a knee-jerk reaction against virtually all biotechnologies remotely associated with human reproduction. As the chairman of aMoreSenator Ashley Butler is a quintessential southern demagogue, whose support of traditional American values includes a knee-jerk reaction against virtually all biotechnologies remotely associated with human reproduction. As the chairman of a subcommittee on health policy, he introduces legislation to ban a new cloning procedure that would take stem cell research to the next level.

Dr. Daniel Lowell, the inventor of the technique, sees the proposed ban as a blow to his biotech startup, and to people poised to benefit from its promised therapies. The two formidable egos clash during the Senate hearing, but the men have a common desire.

Butlers hunger for political power far outstrips his purported concern for the unborn, while Lowells craving for personal wealth and celebrity overrides ethical considerations for patients well-being. Further complicating the situation is the confidential news that Senator Butler has developed a progressive form of Parkinsons disease, which threatens his political future and leads the senator and the researcher into a Faustian pact.

After a perilous attempt to prematurely harness Lowells new technology, the senator is left with the horrifying effects of temporal lobe epilepsy - seizures of the most bizarre order.
