The Riker clone was being formed from genetic material which was stolen from Riker, after he denied its use (as was his right to do). His rights were violated in the process, although the theft was done out of desperation.
All of which is true, but should not Riker have expressed his disagreement with the creation of the clone upon the people who stole his genetic material and created the clone?

And not upon the unconscious and defenseless clone, who was innocent of all wrong doing?

Re: "Second Chances" and its disturbing implications

Like I've said, since the clone hadn't achieved consciousness yet I think Riker was allowed to make the choice to abort it.

He should express his displeasure to the people who raped him as well.

Kinda makes you consider property issues too. I know Will's "gift" of his own trombone to Tom was meant to be a peace offering... but shouldn't he have legal claim to everything else too? Almost insulting to be given one of your own things as a "gift" back to you by a fellow keeping the rest as if he's completely entitled to them all. Like I took your wallet but here's your license back. I don't need it.
Now that's a fairly amusing conundrum!
