Pope Backs Catholic Campaign Against Assisted Fertility in Italy

"Pope Benedict XVI has backed a campaign by Italy's Catholic Church to oppose repealing an assisted fertility law that supporters say reins in runaway research in the reproductive technologies field."

"The need for the law came when a 62 year-old woman became pregnant via artificial insemination. The fertility specialist responsible for that feat has already stated he wants to be the first researcher to clone a human being."
