She blinded me with science!

Got this from Amy Welborn. Apparently, a South Korean scientist has succeeded twice in cloning human embryos.

Hwang is succeeding where the United States is failing because generous South Korean government support helped him create an efficient cloning factory. In his lab, an army of researchers trained in specialized individual tasks mans a high-tech assembly line that often operates 24 hours a day, Cibelli and others say.

This is a great thing, because when I think "sacred mystery of human life" I think "cloning factory" and "high-tech assembly line". Nothing like that to define common humanity.
