In brief: Still research

Stem cells and cloning are research tools but they offer the hope of treating some disorders that may not have any other successful treatments.
Consider new pancreas cells to treat diabetes, cells to correct parkinsons, etc. I doubt anyone has a good idea of where cloning will be of benefit. Any technology can be abused but let's focus on the good hopeful uses.
