Great news but I'm sure some group of people somewhere will find something morally wrong with it.

no doubt they will.
i'm of the opinion that medical science should be given all the money it needs. why spend trillions on blasting people apart when we could spend it on better ways of putting them back together again instead?
the one's who cry 'it's not natural' or 'it goes against god' and 'who knows where it will end' will be the FIRST people knocking on the gene labs' door when their daughter is crippled in a car accident.
trust me.
