Daschle Again Postpones Cloning Ban Debate |
Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) has, time and again promised a vote on the Brownback/Landrieu bill that would ban the cloning of human beings in the United States (S. 1899). He promised a vote before the Memorial Day recess but now says it won’t come up until June. We are not taking that to the bank. But, we must act as if it is going to happen.
The American people understand the implications of the cloning of human beings and the vast majority of us are strongly opposed to it, not to mention frightened at the spectre raised at the possibility that it might happen.
The outcome of the debate about whether or not to ban human cloning is certain to affect the fate of humanity for all time! Do we want our children and grandchildren to grow up in a world where people can manufacture human beings like products on a supermarket shelf, "use" them, and throw them away like trash? Please talk to your Senators about this NOW, before it is too late!!
National Right to Life Committee has provided the following information so that you can get in touch with your U.S. Senators without delay. Tell them you expect them to vote FOR S. 1899, and that you expect them to demand that Senator Daschle allow the bill to go to the Senate floor for debate and a vote immediately after the Memorial Day recess!
Senator Harkin has also introduced his own clone and kill bill (S. 1893), which includes among its cosponsors Senator Harry Reid (D-NV).
On April 9, 2002, Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) introduced a bill (S. 2076) that would permit human cloning except "for the purpose of creating a cloned human being" – language that would not only allow human embryo farms, but also would have the legal effect of allowing human clones to develop for months before being killed. (Read "Dorgan-Johnson Bill Would Allow Implant and Abort Cloning"). Senators Tim Johnson (D-SD) and Mark Dayton (D-MN.) have cosponsored this bill.
We agree with Gary that the poll results reflect clear movement on the part of the American people toward the pro-life point of view. We also echo his sentiments regarding so-called "pro-life" politicians who seek our support at election time but, failing strong, principled leadership from pro-life groups and individuals, can be expected to continue to put the life issues on the legislative back burner. We join him in his call to "put some ‘muscle’ in our pro-life, pro-family movement." (http://www.cwfpac.com)
