Yesterday morning, in a address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Presidente George W. Bush announced his government's support for a "comprehensive ban on human cloning."
"Because we believe in human dignity, we should take seriously the protection of life from exploitation under any pretext,” said the President. “In this session, the U.N. will consider a resolution sponsored by Costa Rica calling for a comprehensive ban on human cloning.”
“I support that resolution and urge all governments to affirm a basic ethical principle: No human life should ever be produced or destroyed for the benefit of another”, said the President.
