Pet Dog Cloning

Do you love your dog so much that you never want to live without him/her? Well, now you can order a clone from this Korean company:

A woman from the United States wants her dead pitbull terrier - called Booger - re-created.

RNL Bio is charging the woman, from California, $150,000 (£76,000) to clone the pitbull using tissue extracted from its ear before it died.

It doesn't sound so bad when talking about a dog. How would you feel about cloning a child who died?

Also, I can appreciate that this woman loved her dog, but lets get real. Can she put her money to something a bit more, well...humanitarian.

I say RNL Bio has a good scam going. And Booger's Mommy has more money than brains.

Mammal cloning. Nine out of ten never make it to term. Of those that do, nine out of ten die almost immediately from lethal birth defects. Of the survivors, nine out of ten have non-lethal birth defects from minor to crippling internal deformities. Those that don't age prematurely, depending on the age of the DNA donor at time of donation.

And even then, what you have is NOT the dead dog/kid/whatever, but an identical twin (though born much later), a different individual.

But Mumsie wants Her Booger back, and she's willing to pay $$$$$$$. Like I said, RNL Bio has a good scam going.
