New paper claims cloned human embryos created from adult cells

Human embryonic stem cell research advocate Robert Lanza published a study claiming success in creating human clones from two adult men and then killing the clones for their stem cells. This experiment mirrors one last year creating human clones of babies and unborn children and uses the same technique which created Dolly the sheep.  Researchers in this experiment used 77 human eggs to create 2 cloned embryos.

Human cloning using the nuclear transfer technique is illegal in Michigan.
