After cloning headless frogs some English scientists now evoke alarming perspectives: as a matter of fact human embrios could be cloned exactly in the same way in order to create a stock of livin spare parts.
The Bioethic Congress of the Council of Europe has not given a guideline which everybody is to comply with; on the contrary its indications are quite contradictory. As a matter of fact the prohibition of cloning human embrios should be enacted in that seat, but the definition of "man" is left instead to the law of every single state. In this way cloned human embrios production is left free of developing in order to "grow" organs and tissues from foetuses and embrios.
