Senators, from both parties, introduced a bill, on April 21, 2005, that would allow some kinds of somatic cell nuclear transfer, under these, and other conditions: human eggs used in such research must be unfertilized; egg donations must be voluntary, with no financial reward for egg donors, nuclear transfer may not be undertaken in labs doing in vitro fertilization.
