In the United States, legislative responses to cloning among both federal and state lawmakers have been rapid and widespread. The Report of the NBAC to President Clinton proposed that Congress prohibit human cloning for a period of years. In the following year, Congress entertained a variety of bills proposing to ban or regulate human cloning. Some proposed prohibiting human cloning. Others proposed allowing such cloning for research purposes. Similarly, soon after Dolly's birth, state legislators presented a large number of bills aimed at regulating or prohibiting human cloning." Other governments and international bodies responded to Dolly's birth with similar speed and concern.
