You MEAN I could have George Clooney’s Baby?! (and a hacked* haiku)

Now don’t get me wrong I’m too old to raise a child (of course it was George’s we would have nannys, lots of nannys).  On second thought the fantasy doesn’t include babies . . .

The world of science is exploding with discovery.  I wish I could live to 200 as the future, rather than the past, has always intrigued me.  EVERYONE should be aware of stem cell research because there’s a LOT of FDA politics, and I suspect lobbying by pharmaceutical companies, to stake out territory over this amazing technology.

Pretty cute babies!
(Not George Clooney’s)

Listen to this!

“Scientists in Japan report they have created eggs from stem cells in a mammal for the first time. And the researchers went on to breed healthy offspring from the eggs they created.”

“While the experiments involved mice, the work is being met with excitement — and questions — about doing the same thing for humans someday.”

‘”Wow. That’s my general reaction,” said Hank Greely, a bioethicist at Stanford University who studies stem-cell science. “Repairing hearts, repairing brains, repairing kidneys, that’s all good and important, and we’d all love to be able to do that. But this involves making the next generation.”‘

“Speculation about the possibilities get even more sci-fi. “Any skin cell that you can find on the edge of a coffee cup theoretically could be induced back to being an egg, and a baby could be produced,” said Ronald Green, a bioethicist at Dartmouth University.

‘”When you think about the commercial possibilities of people selling to infertile people babies produced from George Clooney or Jennifer Aniston, or whatever, you have to worry about it,” Green said.”‘

  1. Before we go any further, I need them to develop a knock-off-30-years pill. But once that’s done… If I’m to have George Clooney’s baby, I definitely want to leave science out of it. 🙂
