The General Secretary of the Spanish Bishops Conference, Fr. Juan Antonio Martínez Camino, expressed the Spanish Bishops’ rejection of all forms of including, even for therapeutic reasons, and called cloning “the criminal use of human life.”
The spokesman for the Spanish Bishops made his comments in response to the recently revealed cloning of human embryos by South Korean scientists.
“Rational moral ethics must demand that one human being never be used by another no matter how much therapeutic cloning,” he said, referring as well to official Church documents of 2001 and 2003 on the subject.
Fr. Martínez emphasized that “one human life cannot be made at the cost of another,” adding that “there needs to be international law to grant complete protection to human life.”
