How long do sheep live on average? Maybe I should read the article first ;) :)

Yes, good Idea to read the article. I had heard about her premature aging :( Perhaps the cloned cell knew how old it was..

I don't think she should have been created in the first place but, I hope the scientific community learns from her short life and death.

I hadn't heard about this.  That's really sad. :(

Yeah, isn't that sort of one of the benefits of all this cloning research?  New organs and all that? :o

Yes, may she rest in peace, and her life and death will help us advance our knowledge.

From all the articles that I have read over the years, she was always very well cared for and treated with love and respect.

I have no objection with cloneing as long as ethical guidelines are followed.  Cloneing new organs to replace failing ones would tremendoously aid those who must wait long years on lists for the still relatively uncommon donated organs.  There are many who die while on those lists, waiting...
