Thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster! Aust. Parliament makes sensible decision.

Australia's ban on therapeutic cloning has been lifted, allowing scientists to do what they do best: help make people's lives better. The decision opens the way for potential cures to a multitude of diseases, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Let the research begin!

Fox News reports:
Parliament on Wednesday lifted Australia's ban on cloning human embryos for stem cell research despite opposition from the prime minister and other party leaders.

The legislation was approved by a vote of 82 to 62 in the House of Representatives. It was passed by the Senate last month.
