We don't know if it will even work properly, Dolly the sheep is not enough evidence that it is guaranteed human cloning would be possible. Even if you did get an embrionic stem cell and implant foreign DNA, then you would need a womb to raise it you cant just "let it develop". Even if that happens, the person coming out wouldnt be the same. There are plenty of genetic identicles in the world, do we go around shooting every one of those because of it? No, we don't.

I have no qualms with cloning, identicle twins arent 100% indenticle, genetics dont make up everything about a person.

As far as Bill Gates or Saddam paying for their own clones, what was stopping them before? Laws? Bah, laws never stopped Saddam slaughtering people.

As far as the article is concerned, I am happy, some say we slaughter these "people" and we are "killing babies" but look at it realistically, the embryos we would use are being thrown away anyway, why not use them?

When the bosses talk about improving productivity, they are never talking about themselves.
