West Germany: West Germany will introduce legislation limiting experimentation and banning any research that would “affect the dignity of the human race” said Justice Minister Hans Engenhard.

Health Minister Rita Suessmuth said that Germany had a special responsibility to respond to such research in an exemplary way.  She was referring to the Nazis who attempted to create the “Master Race.”

This new legislation would ban research using human embryos, forbid surrogate motherhood and put limits on artificial insemination.
