UN Theraputic Cloning Ban Debate Gets Messier

This article from the Straits Times notes the addition of a third camp to the debate; now we can choose between "ban," "mostly ban" and "ban later." It looks like the enormous near term medical and health benefits that will result from theraputic cloning (fundamental to regenerative medicine) are just there to be ignored. It is tremendously frustrating to watch small groups of privileged people blocking the development of new medical science, cures for the incurable and extended healthy livespans for all. I encourage you all to express your opinions to your elected representatives.
