St. Paul, MN (LifeNews.com) -- A Minnesota pro-life group is calling on officials at the University of Minnesota to stop pursuing human cloning experiments.
Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life says the college is violating state law by conducting research involving the destruction of human embryos, days-old unborn children. MCCL's comments come in response to a letter in which the university accuses the pro-life group of not telling the truth about its human cloning research.
The controversy began when MCCL applauded Gov. Tim Pawlenty for signing a bill into law that would ban taxpayer funding of the grisly practice. It accused the University of Minnesota’s Stem Cell Institute of pursuing human cloning.
Wendy Burt, Academic Health Center director of public and community affairs for the college, responded in a letter saying MCCL's contention was “absolutely false." But Scott Fischbach, the executive director of the group, tells LifeNews.com that its contention is accurate. Full story at LifeNews.com
