In spite of the info provided (thanks to rockboy), I find this a difficult survey, and easily understand why you would be 50/50 on it.

In one respect, allowing it provides beneficial aid to those relying on stem cells.

In another respect, although the argument is put that they "go to the stage called blastocyst", in or out of the womb, it is still a living creation.

My main concern is once the "floodgates" are open, precedents are set as a first step which can lead to possible abuse further down the track.

Another concern based on my own understanding, is that there is a heart beat within 14 days (correct me if I'm in error should you have medical proof otherwise).

I find this quite a delicate subject and would be surprised if people are open to discussion...it normally is a topic people would give a wide skirt to, and quite understandably.

Well, after giving this some deep thought, and weighing up the pro's and con's of such a delicate issue, I have come up with this conclusion.































































Should we really be cloning decendents of crims?
