Prohibition of Human Cloning for Reproduction and the Regulation of Human Embryo Research Amendment Bill 2006
I am in the Senator Hogg camp—I do not believe you can make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear—and this is certainly a sow’s ear. I will not be moving any amendments. I will be voting against the third reading. I do not think you can improve this bill. You might fiddle at the margins, but it is still cloning. It is the way Dolly the sheep was made. I do not believe that you can do much about the bill other than vote it down, so I certainly will not be moving any amendments.
