Scientists for the first time have derived thriving colonies of embryonic stem cells from human embryos created using cloning technology.
Scientists hope the cells could one day be used to treat or even cure diseases like diabetes, and usher in an era of so-called “regenerative medicine.”
But there is an important catch to the announcement. Unlike normal stem cells, the cells obtained by the team also included DNA from the human eggs used in the process, resulting in a highly abnormal 69 chromosomes rather than the usual 46.

I agree with having this technology for curing someone that is sick...i.e. grow a kidney or a liver..I get it. But I don't think science should tread in the territory of trying to create a human being, just my thoughts...
