In a St. Joseph Healthscene report, Australia has issued the first license to clone human embryos. The fertility firm Sydney IVF is trying to create embryonic stem cells and reportedly has more than 7,000 human eggs to work with. Scientists in other countries have made stem cells they believe are similar to embryonic cells, but none have been able to make them directly from cloned human embryos.
