The First Cloned Human Embryo

posted on 26 November 2001
On hearing of the creation of the first human embryo clone in the USA, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor said:

'I am very saddened by this grave development. I am not against scientific research but it must always be done in an ethical context. I believe there are grave dangers for our society if we allow the cloning of human embryos. This first step on a downward spiral may seem very clever, but is it really wise?'
