I am not against it if it will save lives as you claim.
You are seriously overlooking the inevitable by not recognizing that this, like everything else, is a double edge sword.
Every issue we face, no matter how severe, always contains an element of irony. You may fix a problem here but you unknowingly produce other more severe problems elsewhere.
This is sweet irony at its best because this too will be abused and taken for granted by those you currently hate.

The original post said that this guy put his skin cells in an egg-far from a human. I'm assuming this egg would eventually turn into a baby? Then raised, etc... Will it think exactly like the donors cells? I think it would be a different human..
I think when we see cloning we think you walk into a box then zap and out the other side comes out a full size human and I dont think that's what happening-but just my opinion
Possibly, but I am failing to see how, if it's saving lives on one side, what kind of 'more severe' problems would happen?
I just don't really see it being mostly negative, or even 50/50 as far as cloning humans go.

I liked the Muliplicity cloning process...
You receive a full-body Xerox. Then they made a copy of a copy... it just didn't come out right.
The funny thing is just about anything science fiction can dream up, somebody will eventually do. One way or another.

I thought they had a law against doing this. I happen to know that back in 95 they had a law and the people that did that one ended up in prison due to that fact. Human cloning was not allowed. As far as I know that still goes. We need to realize that humans being cloned is different then animals being cloned. And look at most of the animals having tumors and being riddled with cancers.
