Missouri's stem cell debate (Part 1)
By Maria Hickey, KWMU
St. Louis, MO – Until quite recently cloning was pure science fiction. But this fall Missourians will likely get a chance to vote on a measure that deals with the subject.
The Missouri Coalition for Lifesaving Cures is pushing for a constitutional amendment to protect stem cell research to the level allowed by federal law.
Their Stem Cell Initiative includes a provision banning human cloning. But opponents say it actually allows it.
In the first of a two-part series on the Missouri Stem Cell Initiative, KWMU's Maria Hickey explains the controversy over the petition's wording.
