BRUSSELS, December 10, 2002 ( – Last Thursday the Belgian Senate voted 39-17 to allow destructive research on embryonic humans.  The bill also allows human cloning for ‘therapeutic’ purposes.  However, the bill goes further than any other to date by allowing the production of embryonic humans specifically for research when embryos left over from fertility treatments are not available.  The bill now moves to the Lower House for consideration.  See the Reuters coverage:
