  • False Promises: Common Cloning Claims Refuted

    Pro-cloning forces have been working hard to convince state governments to pass constitutional amendments enshrining a “right” to clone and to destroy embryos for research. Such amendments promise medical cures, limitless profits, and ethical benchmarks. But all of these promises are false. In this pamphlet we show how such claims fall apart, and how you can effectively oppose cloning amendments in your state. (Download Here – Family Research Council)
