In Denmark the Danish Council on Ethics (Det Etiske Råd), working on behalf of the Danish Parliament (Folketing), published an opinion on human cloning on 1 March, 2001. In this statement, the Council rejects the reproductive cloning of human beings and recommends that research on and using embryonic stem cells should be limited to “surplus” embryos from artificial insemination, excluding cloned human embryos.
