First Cloned Human Embryo Created


According to Popular Science, a team of scientists from the United States and Thailand have created the first cloned human embryo made from stem cells. This should have religious conservatives tossing and turning in bed for the rest of the year at least. Not only has a human embryo been made from skin cells but it has been created purely for scientific and medical purposes. The researches do not believe that the embryo could grow to a full sized human.

The goal in this case is not reproductive cloning, it is to find a reliable way to create stem cells for personalized treatments made from an individuals own DNA. So, in religious fanatic speak, they are going to make an embryo of you for the purpose of aborting it. That should make them livid until they, or a family member, needs treatment.
