I came across this earlier and was a more than a little bit amazed.

First of all, Holy Cow! Clone a Neanderthal? Seriously? We could do that? I'm impressed.

Secondly, Holy Cow, there are a lot of things to consider here. Cloning a Neanderthal? Has nobody seen Jurassic Park? Science gets out of hand, and there are consequences. Is it morally right to bring a person into this world without any sort of similar people, let alone a family? Would it be raised in a lab someplace? What sort of life would it be able to lead? Would he/she be able to live the same way anybody else can in our society? How well could it blend in? How about society? We've produced Paris Hilton, what would we do to a poor Neanderthal?

This is the most interesting article I've encountered in a while. Wow, on every possible level.
