Next Steps In The UN Cloning Fight

The US is still pushing for a United Nations ban on therapeutic cloning, an essential technology for progress in stem cell based regenerative medicine. Influential scientists are currently campaigning for a limited ban on human reproductive cloning only - as opposed to the blanket criminalization of vital medical research that US politicians are seeking. From the article: "Because it represents a significant proportion of the world's research, the US administration is slowing the development of a range of new treatments for heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses." This is a good time to contact your elected representatives and ask them why they are letting this debacle take place.
