Handmade Cloning More Efficient But Obsolete
The dangers of new animal cloning techniques are evading regulatory bureaucrats while safer more ethical options for tissue replacement are making them obsolete
Prof. Joe Cummins and Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 26th March 2012

Unspinning the Web of Spider-Goat
Breeding transgenic goats for spider silk is unethical, and passing surplus goats onto the public food chain unsafe; the project has never been subject to regulatory risk assessment and there is not a single report characterizing the transgenic sequences in the spider-goats’ genome
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 20th February 2012

Human Milk from Cloned Transgenic Cattle
Scientists attempting to create human-like transgenic cow’s milk for large-scale human consumption despite grave concerns over health hazards and unacceptable animal suffering
Prof. Joe Cummins 26th April 2011

Unacceptable Death Rates End Cloning Trials in New Zealand
Government lab announced the end to cloning eight years after the scientist who pioneered the technique abandoned it for precisely the same reasons
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 28th March 2011

Cloned Meat and Milk Coming
Cloning by nuclear transplant is completely different from cloning by splitting embryos, and is closely associated with genetic modification of livestock to produce drugs in their milk; in deregulating cloned meat and milk, the European Commission will be approving the sale of highly unethical and unsafe products that are also illegal
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 16th March 2011

‘Cloned’ Food Animals Not True Clones
Commercial release of ‘cloned’ food animals illegal as well as unethical and unsafe

Cloned BSE-Free Cows, Not Safe Nor Proper Science
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Joe Cummins go behind the smokescreen to expose the project which would perpetuate the intensive animal husbandry that created mad cow disease in the first place and is far from safe or ethical in terms of animal welfare
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho & Prof Joe Cummins 31st January 2007

Is FDA Promoting or Regulating Cloned Meat and Milk?
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Joe Cummins find cloned meat and milk unethical and unsafe. This article has been submitted to the FDA. Please circulate widely to your elected representatives
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho & Prof. Joe Cummins 26th January 2007

Death Sentence on Cloning
The final curtain is drawn over the controversial Dolly cloning. But that should spell the death for 'therapeutic' human cloning as well
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Joe Cummins 25th July 2003

Why Clone Humans?
Why is human cloning contemplated at all? To help infertile couples have children? To provide cells and tissues for transplant? Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Joe Cummins reveal how the scientific establishment is manipulating public opinion to support research that’s both morally and scientifically indefensible.
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Joe Cummins 10th July 2002

Why Clone At All?
Why would anyone clone a sheep or a cow, let alone a human being? None save the genetic determinists who believe an organism is nothing more than the sum total of its genetic makeup and that it is their right to exploit cloned human embryos for spare body parts
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 12th March 2001

The Unnecessary Evil of `Therapeutic' Human Cloning
The United Kingdom House of Lords voted last night by an overwhelming majority to allow the creation of human embryos. ISIS press release 23/01/01
