In Vitro Fertilization, Stem Cell Research On Legislative Agenda

LANSING - The Michigan House Judiciary Committee discussed legislation allowing individuals using in vitro fertilization the option of donating their unused embryos for stem cell research while also increasing the penalties for human cloning, but most of those who testified over the course of nearly five hours voiced their opposition to or support for the research component itself.

There was no vote taken on HB 4616 , HB 4617 and HB 4618 Wednesday, but Chair Rep. Paul Condino (D-Southfield) said he plans on voting the bills out of committee when the Legislature returns the week after Thanksgiving. Apparently the House will put the bills up for a vote, but when is uncertain, as is whether there are enough votes to get it through the full chamber. Condino said if there aren't enough votes, that will be a sign to embryonic stem cell research supporters to move ahead with their petition drive and fundraising to get the measure on the November 2008 ballot.
