Human cloning proven unnecessary2007-12-24 14:50:34curtmerc


A new report published this week in the journal Nature shows that a third team of researchers has been able to "reprogram" ordinary skin cells to take on the properties of embryonic stem cells. These new scientific breakthroughs hold real promise for savings lives without cloning human beings. In addition, Dr. Ian Wilmut - the scientist who cloned Dolly the Sheep - has even cited the new technique as his reason for abandoning human cloning experimentation. The evidence continues to mount that human cloning is not necessary in the pursuit of lifesaving cures and treatments. And it underscores the need to pass a common sense prohibition on this dangerous, unproven and unnecessary practice.
