The Ban on Human Cloning
March 11, 2008
This measure would amend the State Constitution to make it unlawful to perform or attempt to perform human cloning. This measure would also make it unlawful to buy, sell, transfer or receive any product of human cloning for any purpose. Furthermore, this measure would make it unlawful to buy, sell, transfer, or receive any embryo, fetus, or specified types of human cells for the purpose of human cloning. The measure would also amend the State Constitution and state law to define human cloning and certain other terms in a manner that would likely result in both reproductive cloning and therapeutic cloning being banned.
