The result would set off a chain of chemical reactions that would eventually result in an embryo. That embryo would then be implated in a woman, who would, if everything went normally, have a child nine mouths later.

    What animals?

    In years to come, having one's own clone in the freezer would be the best health insurance policy.

    Even though the development of technology and research in this domain are still very slow, and the work of scientists imply dangers and risks not only for them but for the whole population.

    It is very important that laws could give a framework where all these scientific works benefit to everybody and not only to a few ones.


    Priority should be given to health care for alive patients. The medical benefits would be enormous.

    But considering abuse and the others risks, cloning are not yet ready for human experimentation.

    Now it is good.
