Science Clones Humans - Gov't Controls Science?

One group of scientist want to clone a human embryo by the end of the
year.  Another group says it's playing God, that it's unethical.  Our
government wants to make it illegal to clone a human embryo.  Should the
government control what direction science should take? I say "No," they
don't need to stick their head in what is not their territory.
Government screws the citizens enough as it is.  They may not want to
fund cloning, but I do not believe they have the right to control what
advancements are made by the scientific community.  If our government
wishes to be a socialist or communistic state, then they should declare
such, instead of acting as if this was a true democracy.  Science should
be allowed to evolve, and not be stifled by ignorance.

What are your thoughts on the matter?
