Human Cloning Clinic

— NPR's Joe Palca reports on Chicago scientist and entrepreneur, Richard Seed, and his plans to open a human cloning clinic. The clinic would offer infertile couples the option of cloning themselves, if no other accepted medical treatment could help them have a baby. Seed faces numerous ethical, legal, and social obstacles. And he does not yet know where he'll get the money for the project, or where to find doctors and patients willing to try the experimental procedure.
