Statement on human embryo cloning

16 August 2000
Action Research - one of the UK’s leading medical research charities - welcomes today’s announcement of a free vote by MPs on the ‘relaxing’ of the law regarding cloning for medical research. Whilst research using human embryos falls outside the charity’s remit, we appreciate how important cloning of specific human cells is to the future of medical research. However, as with all major scientific advances, such cloning needs to be properly authorised, monitored and controlled within acceptable limitations for treating serious and disabling disease.
