cloning and the senate

How will the Senate vote on the Human Cloning Prohibition Act? An article in the Economist indicates that amongst the members of the Senate, there are five basic arguments in favor of a ban, and six basic arguments in support. The conclusion to the article? That the likely result of the Senate's vote later this month will be a two year moratorium on cloning, while research and debate continue.
