Scientist clone endangered Black Footed Ferret from Ferret that died 30 years ago . It's a 100% exact genomic match.

Jurassic Park not such a wild idea. A surrogate female Ferret carried the Black Footed Ferret to birth.

Apparently, there is a race to produce a Wooly Mammoth from genetic material from an extinct mammoth from Russia's frozen northern tundra.  They plan to have a healthy Africam Elephant as a surrogate mother.  Seriously.  

Why stop there .  Is Ted Williams next ?

Redsox could use a Ted Williams clone this year.

Imagine a couple of dozen Donald's all running for office at once.

AOC could be one of the surrogates carrying a Donald clone.

We laugh .  .   .   .  But if you can clone a ferret , they can a human .  

Some ethical questions need to be answered.

Apparently China is doing a lot in this area.

Better yet a whole team in twenty years. But, "nature or nurture"? China is reportedly working on genetically enhanced soldiers. Maybe more dangerous than COVID?

True, China is doing a lot of work in this area.  The thought of it is scary.

Xi doesn't want another Xi running around. Younger, healthier, just as ambitious. No he'll just sit in prison as "spare parts" for when old Xi breaks down.  😎

So, where are the surrogate mothers going to be sourced from?  

Or are we back to dragging in Korean women by the hair?  

Or do the Chinese outsource to Indonesia?  Hey, whole new industry.

You can genetically advance soldiers after birth...  CRISPR cas9.

Already banned in athletes.

If you think the US isn't doing this type of research you are naive. That or you have to accept that China, and others, are technologically superior.

Remember 15-20 years ago all the questions regarding cloning from Dolly the sheep and its application to humans? It was a big debate, then a few laws were proposed, then it all went silent. Don't think people quit working on that, and that human cloning isn't being perfected. The Chinese could teach the Nazi's some lessons in Medical experiments
