LANSING, Mich., July 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Please attribute the following statement to Dave Doyle, Spokesman for Michigan Citizens Against Unrestricted Science and Experimentation:
"This proposal is deliberately deceptive. Lawyers and politicians intentionally drafted this language to mislead the voters. This proposal will allow unregulated and unrestricted experimentation on human embryos.
This proposal does not ban human cloning in the State Constitution. The proposal states that nothing shall be interpreted to alter or abrogate the current law banning cloning. However, bills have already been introduced in the Michigan legislature to allow for human cloning. This proposal will permit the legalization of cloning.
Voters should not be deceived by this proposal. It will allow for unregulated, unrestricted experimentation on human embryos.
This proposal would allow researchers to ignore any law that would prevent, restrict or regulate the destruction of human embryos.
Human embryonic stem cell research is already legal in Michigan and has been conducted in Michigan for years. It continues today at the University of Michigan Center for Human Embryo Stem Cell Research and other Michigan universities. This proposal will allow for unregulated and unrestricted research."
Paid for by the Michigan Citizens Against Unrestricted Science and Experimentation with regulated funds
