Free Hwang Woo-Suk

Hwang Woo-Suk claimed to have created a stem cell line from a cloned human embryo in 2004 in a paper in "Science."

Later, it was found out that some of his female lab personal were paid for, or donated their eggs for research. This caused a questionable uproar.

Supposedly, his research was debunked as fake.

Hwang is still credited for cloning Snuppy, the world's first cloned dog.

The persecution of Hwang has been too political.

Hwang, at one time was working on cloning a Siberian tiger and the extinct woolly mammoth. He was also once working on cloning organs for humans who need transplants to live.

We suggest no jail time for Hwang. Instead, put him back to work doing good science.
