The United Nations is the world’s foremost international organization. In 2001 France and Germany proposed a binding UN treaty calling for a prohibition on human reproductive cloning, and an early procedural vote suggested unanimous support for this. Subsequently, a significant number of countries expressed opposition to banning reproductive cloning without simultaneously banning research cloning. This led to extended controversy, and the debate became, essentially, a debate over the acceptability of research cloning. By 2003 it became clear that a consensus concerning this topic could not be achieved. In 2005 a non-binding Declaration implying opposition to research cloning was brought to a vote. It received a plurality of votes (46%), which under UN rules makes it the official UN position. But the fact that the Declaration was non-binding, and that 36% of UN member countries abstained or were absent from the vote, reduces its significance.
