WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council (FRC) Senior Fellow for Life Sciences Dr. David Prentice will testify tomorrow, November 13, before the Ohio House of Representatives' Health and Aging Committee in support of H.B. 308, a bill that would ban human cloning and the creation of animal-human hybrids in Ohio.
Prentice has previously testified in support of the bill and assisted Ohio pro-life groups and legislators in their efforts to enact the legislation.
Of the bill Prentice said:
"H.B. 308 provides common sense restrictions on human cloning and animal-human hybrids in Ohio. There are no valid medical or scientific gains that exist or will come from human cloning or hybrid techniques. Rather, these are abuses of science and should be prohibited. Our focus should be on life-saving methods such as adult stem cells that put the patient first."
