Short description: 
HUMAN CLONING-BAN                                                          

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates  the  Human  Cloning  Act.   Prohibits   human   cloning.      
   Prohibits a person from purchasing, selling, using, or transporting an      
   ovum, zygote, embryo, or  fetus  for  the   purpose   of   cloning   a      
   human being.  Establishes administrative  penalties  for  a violation.      
   Provides   that   nothing  in  the  Human  Cloning  Act  restricts  or      
   prohibits  biomedical  research   using   cloning technology  that  is      
   not  expressly  prohibited by the Act, including cloning human  genes,      
   cells,  and  tissues. Provides that the Act is repealed on January  1,      
   2007.   Amends   the   Civil  Administrative   Code  of  Illinois, the      
   Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act, the Hospital Licensing  Act,      
   and  the  Medical   Practice   Act  of   1987.    Provides   for   the      
   revocation   of  various  licenses  for violation of the Human Cloning      
   Act.  Amends the Criminal Code  of  1961.  Prohibits   a  person  from      
   engaging in activity that involves the use of a human somatic cell for      
   the   process   of   producing   a  human  clone. Penalty is a Class 4      
   felony.  Effective immediately.                                             
          CORRECTONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                         
          There are no data available to objectively determine the number      
          of admissions that would result from this legislation. However,      
          the impact is expected to be minimal. Each person sentenced to       
          prision for a Class 4 violation of the Human Cloning Act would       
          serve an average of seven months at a cost of $12,038. It would      
          also require the construction of one additional prison bed at        
          the cost of $50,510.
