If I'm being insensitive, well, okay, I am being insensitive, but what I really feel and wasn't going to say is that said woman should be flogged for wasting her money instead of giving it to someone with a functioning cerebral mass. heh All of this is misplaced agression, really, my mother once threatened to donate my inheritance to a home for aged prostitutes and it sorta embedded in my unconscious. Mea Culpa, moving on to something relevant.
Thank you for pointing out another reason why cloning is wrong! Every time a fetus is deformed or not right, they make another one and destroy the first. Is this mercy killing or just plain murder? It is one step closer to trying to make the perfect society, that had been the subject of many books! First animals then only a matter of time before they do it with people!
Does this silly woman know that in order to successfully clone her precious kitten, the company in question will probably go through a dozen attempts. Does she think about the misshapen, underdeveloped fetus of each and every "broken egg" that goes into making her omelette? Does she want to keep all of the results, or just the cute ones? Is she going to put the six legged, four ounce blob of gestational goo on a leash and walk it around the neighborhood while smiling like a jack in a box and waving like miss america from the float labeled INSANITY???
When will people learn. Your pets are not as important as your fellow humans. No matter how fuzzy.
