The Dolly scientists aren't content with an arthritic cloned sheep. They now want permission to clone human embryonic cells. One of these days, I'll update this site with links to information about the bioethical considerations of stem cell and cloning research, as well as what hasn't gone quite right with Dolly.
"The scientists who cloned Dolly the sheep said on Thursday they plan to seek permission to experiment on human embryos for medical purposes. In a move expected to raise concerns from some religious groups, the Roslin Institute will apply for a license to the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority, the British government body that regulates embryo research."
