You still don’t seem to realize the difference between THERAPEUTIC cloning and REPRODUCTIVE cloning. These 100 clones are for THERAPEUTIC purposes.
THEY ARE NOT GOING TO PRODUCE NEW HUMAN BEINGS FROM THE EMBRYOS. The blastocysts will be pulled apart to harvest embryonic stem cells.
(That’s if this story is not just hype, which it almost certainly is.)
