The following is an excerpt of a longer story.
The world just changed. An international consortium of scientists have announced that they have successfully cloned human beings using the process that led to Dolly the sheep. They were able to develop four cloned embryos in a dish to the “blastocyst” stage, the point in time when an embryo can be implanted in a uterus or destroyed for stem cells. The scientists here did the latter.
This is huge news — reproduction as replication. The door is now open to the development of Brave New World technologies such as genetic engineering and the birth of cloned babies.
