Researchers intend to implant human clones

An Italian doctor and a U.S. researcher have announced that they intend implant cloned human embryos in 200 women volunteers within the next few months. This would be the first known attempt at human cloning. One of the researchers, Professor Severino Antinori of Rome, is scheduled to speak on 7 August 2001 at a daylong panel on Scientific and Medical Aspects of Human Cloning at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC. Critics of the effort are said to be worried it may create a backlash against ongoing efforts to advance stem cell research in the United States, according to a report from United Press International.
