Trouble for California Cloning?
The United Nations will likely decide Friday, after many delays, whether to vote on an international cloning ban, vote on a new declaration introduced by Italy or delay voting once again.
Just weeks after Californians voted for a $3 billion proposition to fund embryonic stem-cell research, which would include therapeutic cloning, the United Nations is considering a ban on all cloning. If the vote leads to a treaty that’s eventually adopted by the United States, the treaty could cause problems for the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative.
