Hatch and Feinstein have introduced their newest version of their anti human cloning ban which legalises human cloning! Wesley Smith has a great piece on this bill here.
It’s called the human cloning ban and stem cell protection act of 2007. The bill also specifically “protects women egg donors” by making sure big biotech isn’t buying eggs but women can be compensated for their troubles. Of course no mention anywhere in the bill about the real dangers to women–like stroke, death, premature loss of fertility, or reproductive cancer.
