      SC House bans cloning of human embryos 77-15
      (COLUMBIA)-- In a stunning pro-life victory, the South Carolina House voted 77-15 Wednesday to ban the cloning of human embryos.  The bill, S820, passed the SC Senate March 26, and was amended in the House Judiciary Committee to strengthen the language to conform with the federal Brownback/Landrieu Human Cloning Prohibition Act supported by President Bush.
      The South Carolina bill now goes back to the Senate which will vote May 7 to concur with the House amendment or to reject it. 
      Authored by Rep. Chip Campsen, R-Charleston, the "Campsen Amendment" corrects vague language in the Senate bill to protect the intent of the bill from being subverted by the non-ethical biotechnology industry.  Non-ethical factions of the biotech industry intend to redefine the meaning of "clone" and of "human being" in order to establish human embryo farms in which innnocent human life will be bought, sold, exploited, pattened, and killed at will.
