The article discusses the differences between the U.S. and Canadian views on the cloning of human embryos for research. On the opinion editorial page a Canadian scientist was pleading for Canada to repeal its law against cloning human embryos for research. In tolerant, open-minded, diverse and creative Canada therapeutic cloning is defined as creating an in vitro embryo with the same chromosomes as any other individual. It is a crime punishable by ten years in prison.
