Reeve pleads for end to

Reeve pleads for end to clone ban in Australia.
“A strong advocate for embryonic stem-cell (ES) research, Reeve hopes to meet privately with John Howard: “I’m hoping for progress on therapeutic cloning,” he said.
Therapeutic cloning is the creation of embryos for scientific and medical purposes.
Parliament last year passed legislation banning human reproductive cloning, but permitting the use of some spare IVF embryos for ES cell research. The therapeutic cloning decision was put on hold.”
This pisses me off. Firstly, butt out of Australia’s business, ex-movie star or not. Secondly, while I’m completely in favour of abortion rights, creating embryos purely to destroy them seems wrong.
