neither would I.

I see the process as little different to having a child with the physical
characteristics of a twin, but the mental characteristics would be quite
different due to the time displacement and different upbringing.

Of course all the scare mongering has a highly distasteful purpose - it
delays research into stem cell technology that can cure many unpleasant and
serious diseases. By delaying the research hundreds or maybe even thousands
of people die horrible deaths before they could benefit from what could well
be simple painless treatments.
