Hold Fast Germany

by Jennifer Lahl, CBC President on February 15, 2008

I am always praising the Germans for their great laws on cloning and embryo research. But today I saw this piece, suggesting that the German lawmakers are considering relaxing their current policies. Why in the world would they do this? Especially in light of the recent iPSC breakthroughs – which keep providing us with new breakthroughs and advancements!

Because *yawn* *sigh* – the scientist are complaining that their prohibitions against cloning embryos or destroying embryos for research is causing them to fall behind with the global advances! Say what?

A vote is set for next month. Let’s hope cooler heads prevail!
