Regarding the recent cloning news,1 what are people like me to do to sustain life? I have cardiomyopathy with an ejection fraction of 17%. At 55 years old, I don't think I will be put on top of an organ transplant list.

I would volunteer in a minute for any research that will clone organs for humans. Maybe President George W. Bush would change his tune if his wife or child needed help.
