New Experiment Shows that Human Cloning Might Be Possible

Scientists looking for new methods to make human tissue have successfully used cloning technology to create embryonic stem cells from skin cells. The researchers were attempting to find new ways to create tissue in a lab setting that can be used to treat some diseases and injuries. Unlike the controversial method of tissue harvesting that requires some human embryos to be destroyed, the new cloning technique can use a patient’s own skin cells—combined with an unfertilized human egg—to create tissue with a DNA match. Though there’s no indication that scientists have any intention of using the technology to ever clone another person, the research brings the prospect of such an experiment a step closer …
