UN Panel: Ban All Human Cloning

As reported by the Food and Drug Law Institute yesterday in its "SmartBrief," a UN panel has approved a nonbinding resolution that recommends that all member nations ban all forms of human cloning.  This could potentially include cloning-for-research, as well as reproductive cloning, which would be a setback for stem-cell research if member nations follow the panel's recommendation.  Nature has a good story on this development.  Wired  is also listed as a source for FDLI's report.  [tm]
