AAAS CEO Alan I. Leshner statement on the UN cloning debate

Washington, DC -- A statement from Dr. Alan I. Leshner, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and executive publisher of the journal Science, on the debate over research cloning that is scheduled to begin at the United Nations on Thursday 21 October 2004:

"We realize that this issue generates intense debate. We have long opposed human cloning to produce babies as dangerous and irresponsible. But we believe that nuclear cell transplantation research - what is called research or therapeutic cloning - holds the potential to ease tremendous suffering and prolong life for countless millions of people. For that reason, this window of scientific and eventual clinical opportunity should not be shut prematurely.

"These positions are reflected in the measure sponsored by Belgium-a measure that clearly represents the mainstream of scientific and medical thinking in the United States and worldwide."
