Don't you love farce? My fault, I fear. I thought that you'd want what I want - sorry, my dear. And where are the clones? Quick, send in the clones. Don't bother, they're here. Isn't it rich? Isn't it queer? Losing my timing this late in my career? And where are the clones? There ought to be clones. Well, maybe next year...

When your kids are saved by the cloning of human cells, you will be thanking your god that she instilled such knowledge in some researcher. How many burials are there for miscarriages?

None I would think.

Six is having problems adjusting to his clone status. Have to put him on a shelf.... "Please don't put me on a shelf" All day long we hear him crying so loud.... "I just want to be myself" "I just want to be myself" "I just want to be myself" "Be myself....be myself .........yeah" ---Alice Cooper--- "Clones.....We're All" Does the end justify the means? I think not!

Yes there should be clones.Lets make then real strong and big .That way they can do our work for use.Maybe uses them for organ transplants.Lets not let them own guns or maybe we will be their slaves. May God have mercy on us all....

A "real' scientific break-through. This gives hope to lots of folks including my brother with a bad heart. There are those who still believe the earth is flat - or want to. May God continue to guide the hands of his fools.

I'm waiting for the cyborgs myself. Just think, they could take the clones and enhance them with electronics, replace the head with a computer, armor plate the torso, etc. They would do our bidding! No more normal people being exposed to danger. Robocop on every corner. Super soldiers on the battlefield. This is all too messed up.

The reason I have been against eugenics is that it does not benefit me.

Cloning humans to be human is a rather weak reason in my opinion. But, with the technology we develope doing the cloning research, people could get a new heart, a new pancreas, kidneys, etc, off their own DNA. Genetic disorders could be corrected, Down's Syndrome could be corrected, hair loss prevented, breast cancer stopped, and idiot liberals bred out of existance. Think of it, a world without cancer, genetic disorders, etc, etc. We should not stop this research from taking place, only the actual and final act of cloning a human. Did I make any sense? JRB

I thought Clinton banned cloning? What happened that GWB allowed this in the stem cell bill?

What happens when cloned organ transplants become available at $800,000 a pop and the public decides that "everyone" should be eligible to have them?

Just say NO to clones! There's only enough room for one Smeghead on this Earth.

All cloning is, is identical twins the hard way. That said, I'm a little worried that cloned humans won't be accorded the same rights and priviledges that any other human being is, simply because they came about differently. But I think we'll see through that; slavery is bad, etc.

Cloning, and stem cell research is important to those people suffering from many diseases and disorders. If you were in that position you might feel differently. I know in that my situation, with a loved one suffering from a stroke, and from going to Support Groups and seeing others suffering and dealing with doctors and medications, the promise this offers is worthy of further study. Then there's cancer, Alzheimers, heart disease and many others, all things that will touch all of your lives sooner or later. I support technologies that search for an end to suffering.

The President just stated on CSPAN that he is opposed to creating life in order to harvest organs & destroying life in the process. A tough topic to get around.

Already here. There are people out there with pump-augmented hearts, artificial valves in their hearts, artificial lenses in their eyes, artificial joints, synthetic replacement bones, etc. They are, by definition, cyborg - part human, part machine. People augmented with microprocessors are coming up - electronic stimulation of the sight centers of the brain to restore rudimentary "vision" to the blind, electronic "spinal bypass" circuitry to enable the paraplegic to use their limbs, etc. The question is this: Is an embryo a human being? To the religious, there isn't even a question. To the pragmatic, it [i]can[/i] be, but the question is [i]when[/i]. As heilo put it, how many funerals are there for miscarriages? I'm sorry, but a clump of cells in a petri-dish is not a human being. If (when) they somehow manage to bring an embryo (cloned or not) to full term outside a human womb, then that [i]will[/i] be a human being with all the rights that you or I (may still) have. The question is, what do we do about the intermediate period? When do we draw the line and say that it is a being with rights? Right now, legally, it is until birth. Too loose. The fanatically anti-abortion oriented say "at conception". Too tight. Who gets to play Goldielocks and determine what's "just right"?

OK AR fans This is not the first human cloning and these people never got past the 16 cell stage. There have been others that went over 500 cells but they were not publihed in anything that would go public. I am for this as the only thing that can fix my visual deficit from my stroke is STEM CELLS cpermd
