Testimony by Harold Varmus, MD, to the Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Human Cloning
Varmus and Paul Berg both testified at this hearing, to discourage support for Senator Sam Brownback's bill, which would
criminalize scientists, doctors, and patients who pursue any of the parts of cloning technology, even when there is no intention
of creating a cloned human being. A competing bill, sponsored by Orrin Hatch, Dianne Feinstein, Arlen Specter, et al., would
prohibit human cloning but "protect important areas of medical research, including stem cell research."
