attacking the clones

South Korea is going to ban human cloning (link via Drudge).

South Korea announced Tuesday it would move to ban the cloning of human cells except for infertility treatment, the Korea Times reported.

The bill from the Ministry of Health and Welfare passed the National Assembly Monday and does have some exceptions.

According to the bill, people who perform human cloning, or create embryos for purposes other than infertility treatments, will face up to 10 years in prison.

The selling of sperm and egg cells will be prohibited, while producing human embryos from the deceased will also be banned.

Ah, yes. The thought of some mad Korean scientist making millions of like-thinking, like-acting, like-dressing clones must be abhorrent to the individualistic South Korean mind.
