Bri­tish pro-lif­ers riled . . . . . . . 24

The Washington Times Weekly - - Page Two -

Re­li­gious lead­ers and pro-life cam­paign­ers have an­grily at­tacked the Bri­tish gov­ern­ment for its re­fusal to ban the cre­ation of an­i­mal-hu­man em­bryos and so-called “sav­ior sib­lings” — re­search de­scribed by one Ro­man Catholic car­di­nal as a form of “Franken­stein” science. Gov­ern­ment forces in the House of Com­mons on May 20 drove back at­tempts to de­rail what some re­searchers de­scribed as the big­gest shake-up in nearly two decades of laws gov­ern­ing sen­si­tive sci­en­tific work in ar­eas such as stem-cell re­search.
