Bill would ban human cloning in Minnesota

ST. PAUL — A bill attempting to head off possible human cloning is starting its travel through Minnesota's Legislature.

The human cloning ban is a priority of the state's dominant anti-abortion group, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life. The legislation would make it a felony to attempt, perform or aid in cloning by combining embryonic eggs with the nucleus removed and other human cells.

The bill's first stop is Tuesday in the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services. A similar measure awaits a House hearing.
