UN Votes Against All Human Cloning


The General Assembly of the United Nations has voted overwhelmingly against all human cloning. While "The United Nations Declaration on Human Cloning" is not binding, it is an important statement that all human cloning is "incompatible with human dignity and the protection of human life." The Declaration also recognizes the enormous potential cloning has to exploit women. The spinners are already trying to downplay this event, and the media are all but ignoring it. But as I point out in a forthcoming column, this is a very big deal that will have ramifications both domestically and internationally for years to come.
