Today’s resounding bipartisan vote in the House demonstrates concern for the profound moral and social issues posed by human cloning.  Like most Americans, I believe human cloning is deeply troubling, and I strongly support efforts by Congress to ban all human cloning.  We must advance the promise and cause of medical science, including through ethical stem cell research, yet we must do so in ways that respect human dignity and help build a culture of life.  I urge the Senate to act quickly on legislation banning all human cloning.
