CLONING SCIENTIST ASKS TO PRODUCE HUMAN CLONES IN ENGLAND The controversial Italian fertility doctor, Severino Antinori, who has vowed to produce human clones has asked for permission to carry out his cloning experiments in Britain. Britain has been criticized by most other countries for having allowed human cloning, but only for “therapeutic” purposes (to produce embryos for stem cell experiments). Antinori says he wants to allow fathers with fertility problems the chance to have genetically linked progeny.
