Now that'll be a news story, when doctors create the first body part for tranplant by using cloning techniques! It'll be the biggest breakthrough since immunization was invented. Of course, we'll have to address all the legal issues, but I think it can pretty much come under existing abortion rulings. That means it'll arouse the same religious opposition as well. At any rate, we can't let someone create a clone and start harvesting organs from and 8 1/2 month old fetus. But stem cells taken from a cloned blastocist should be no problem. Imagine pre-emtive organ creation. I'm healthy now, but why don't I get a few clones going, then bank a few kidneys, a heart, a liver etc., and freeze them until I need them later on. Where can I buy stock in the company that will do this???
