This essay is written from my heart. I was unable to have children all my life due to my mother having scarlet fever while I was developing inside her womb, I was told at the young age of 14 that I was unable to have children due to the intense scaring on my own reproductive organs while my mother carried me with such a great fever. As far as I know the only real damage was to my fallopian tubes.
I have considered adopting from any world source possible, i.e.: Romanian etc., but those markets want between 17 and 20 thousand dollars! I don’t have that to spend! It would take all the money to adopt and then I would have no money left over to actually raise the child. Trying to adopt an American child is even harder and more expensive.
My husband is a very gentle and kind man but he is learning impaired and also has a few minor physical defects like stumped toes, which kept him out of the military, which we would not care to pass on to a baby even if I could ever conceive normally.
My only other option would be to become inseminated, again at an ungodly cost with very little guarantee the pregnancy would take. I have a friend that has been inseminated several times with no luck and now she is financially broke and has to stop trying.
I could try to get impregnated with several eggs at once but I view the problem with fetal reduction as basically senseless murder, if I were to conceive more than my body could take. Birthing a “litter” of 6 or more babies at once would financially destroy me and my health. I would definitely be grateful to carry a single or twin clones!
So, cloning in my opinion would be a god-send. God gave mankind the knowledge to do such miracles, and as long as there are fertility doctors that are doing “reductions” on multiple births, I see nothing darker or more evil than that.
I do see the fact that my baby would be a duplicate of me, but its mental development during growth would keep it different enough to make it the perfect choice for me and for my husband. I know several real regular birth parents that have children that look exactly like them, sort of a natural type clone already.
My last remark in this essay is a plea:
If there are any researchers in Texas that want to conduct cloning experiments in the open or even secretly behind closed doors, please please please email me! I am 39 in good health but can’t pay much unless its on an extended payment plan. But as you can see, my age is beginning to become a factor and I do not have any chance for a regular conceived god-sent baby. I can only hope to find someone’s hand guided by the knowledge god gave them.
Transportation would be difficult, so the closest researcher can be to San Antonio, Texas the better. I would also be more than willing to sign any secrecy or malpractice disclosure paperwork! Researchers only may email me at, firstname.lastname@example.org. My name is Val. Please no flame mail, but if you have kind words please send them along.
