FRC Applauds New Ballot Initiative for Cures Without Cloning
Date:8/22/2007

Missourians Introduce New Ballot Initiative to Pursue Cures for Patients,

without involving controversial Human Cloning

WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, a new grassroots ballot initiative was launched in Missouri to ensure that taxpayer funds support cures for patients, without involving human cloning.

Tony Perkins, the President of Family Research Council, issued the following statement on the new initiative, Cures Without Cloning.

"I applaud the new Missouri initiative to advance cures for patients in a way that does not involve human cloning. This new initiative by Cures Without Cloning, a coalition of Missouri citizens, doctors, and professionals, offers a balanced amendment to the Missouri Constitution to prevent Missouri taxpayers from funding the cloning of human embryos for destructive research. Human cloning is now legal in Missouri. The Missouri Constitution should be clarified to ensure that all human cloning is prohibited and taxpayers are not forced to fund human cloning.

"This initiative will help clarify last year's confusing and deceptive Amendment 2, which allows human cloning under the guise of stem cell research. The loophole in the Missouri Constitution needs to be closed to make sure real cures are being promoted by stem cell research, not human cloning. This ballot petition does precisely that.

"Human cloning claims from South Korea turned out to be fraudulent, but false promises for human cloning continue. Missouri needs to focus its resources on stem cell research that has proven successful in helping patients and shows real promise for more cures, putting the patients first, not the cloners."
