Thread: The Human Reproductive Cloning Bill passed by the House of Lords (UK) - 2 years ago

    The Human Reproductive Cloning Bill passed by the House of Lords (UK) - 2 years ago

    The British bill is an example of parsimonious and effective legislation:

    "Prohibit the placing in a woman of a human embryo which has been created otherwise than by fertilisation."

    Proposes imprisonment of no more than 10 years, or a fine, or both.

    I wish that we could pass this bill in the U.S.

    Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 (c. 37)

    http://www.hmso.gov.uk/acts/acts1990...00037_en_1.htm

    This Act provides for the licensing of such activities and prohibits
    1. creating, keeping, or using an embryo without a license
    2. keeping or using an embryo after the appearance of the primitive streak (a blastocyst from which embyronic stem cells are obtained has not yet developed a primitive streak).
    3. maintaining or storing sperm and eggs for such purposes without a license.

    It also creates a Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority which shall track, review, report, and regulate the licenses.

    Hhmmm

    If you have never experienced the deep desire to have your own child than you don't know how much this could help those who are childless. As for adoption, try jumping through the hoops.
