This process sounds interesting.
Is therapeutic cloning different then taking Embryos stem cells or stem cells from the Fetus.

Dan998, therapeutic cloning creates an embryo using an egg and your DNA, and then harvest the stem cells. These cells would then be exactly matched for you. Cloning a human embryo, however, is not so easy. It has been done only once, by the Koreans last year, producing the first cloned human embryonic stem cell line. Somewhere, in Seoul, Korea, is a woman who has her own embryonic stem cell line. It probably took over year and many eggs to do this. Wise.

Wise, what about therapeutic cloning for Parkinsons, Alzheimers, brain injuries from strokes, people who are paralzyed etc.
Can it work for that to.
