Cloning on the rocks

The week's news at a glance.

Washington, D.C.

The House of Representatives last week voted to ban all human cloning. Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) called cloning “ghoulish.” President Bush applauded the House for demonstrating “concern for the profound moral and social issues posed by human cloning.” But the 241-155 victory in the House did not assure that the ban would become law. A divided Senate has yet to vote, and proponents of cloning vowed to fight to keep it legal for use in medical research. Cloning proponents say cloned human embryos offer the best source of stem cells, which some scientists believe could be used to find cures for such diseases as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
