NEW YORK, Mar 19 (LSN) – Pharmaceutical Research & Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and The Biotechnology Industry Organization have lobbied feverishly at both federal and state levels to quash any legislation to ban human cloning. Having blocked anti-cloning legislation in Congress, the two drug manufacturers have launched an aggressive state-by-state campaign to fight other anti-cloning bills. Spokespersons for the groups lament their one defeat thus far the legislation enacted by California Gov. Pete Wilson on Oct. 4 making it a crime to clone a human being or buy fetal cells to do so.
