I confess that at one point in Vinnie's life I seriously considered trying to find a way to afford it. When he was diagnosed with cancer my first instinct was to fight it - and fight hard. But when chemo, rescue chemo and alternative methods didn't work...I thought about cloning him. That's how much I feared losing him.
Ethics aside, I was willing to do anything in my power to have Vinnie live on. Then I wondered if cloning would mean I'd have to watch him die of cancer again. That would be completely unbearable. There are so many things that could go wrong - and Vinnie would pay for every one.
Obviously it wasn't going to happen and I'm glad now that it didn't, but I know what it feels like to be willing to do almost anything to try to 'save' someone you love.
