Ohio Christian Alliance has
been working with Senator Jordan on this important
Click here to read the bill’s language.
A bill to amend section 3701.99 and to enact section
3701.94 of the Revised Code to prohibit human cloning in the
state of Ohio.
Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT), or cloning,
involves three steps. An
unfertilized egg is taken from a woman and its nucleus
is removed. Then,
DNA from a person is placed inside the egg. Next,
chemicals are added and a spark of electricity jolts the
cell into dividing and growing into a cloned human embryo.
All cloning, whether therapeutic or reproductive, is the
same thing – somatic cell nuclear transfer. All cloning
reproduces a human being at the embryonic stage. Therefore,
we must oppose it.
