Bills in Congress would ban all human cloning
To the editor:
The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote next week on House Resolution 534, a bill that would ban all human cloning. The U.S. Senate is also considering passage of Senate Bill 245, a similar bill that would ban all human cloning. Passage of these measures would mean that cloning would be banned for both scientific and reproductive reasons..
As you know, Dolly the cloned sheep recently had to be euthanized after she developed symptoms of old age diseases and disorders prematurely. Let this be a warning to us all.
I ask everyone to please contact their representatives and senators in Washington asking them to vote yes on HR 534 and S 245.
