UN Committee Recommends Banning Human Cloning


A UN special committee has recommended that the General Assembly of the United Nations pass a "declaration on human cloning by which Member States would be called on to prohibit all forms of human cloning inasmuch as they are incompatible with human dignity and the protection of human life." This is a first big step toward creating an international prohibition on human cloning for any purpose. Congratulations to all who worked so hard to make this happen. The final vote was 71 in favor of the ban, 35 opposed, and 43 abstentions.
