Vatican opposes British cloning research


The Vatican reiterated its firm opposition yesterday to human cloning after the British government gave a research team permission to use human cloning for medical research purposes, reported AFP.

Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls told AFP that Pope John Paul II has “always unequivocally condemned all forms of human cloning” in speeches and Vatican documents 

Navarro-Valls said the Vatican would make a detailed assessment on the British research once more details emerge of the research team's plans.
