Promising use of 3d printing

Organ Harvesting on the Black market seeing the beginning of  its demise?

A team in China,  saved a 9 month old baby with a  3d printed  Heart.  My  first thought was how many  poor cancer and kidney / liver sufferers could benefit IF (hopefully only when not if) this  becomes something that is the new medical norm, and then the reality of  cloning and  using this to revive less than desireable individuals (like violent offenders) also came to the forefront. I can only hope a reasonable and  sane minded (if that can truly be  quantified and agreed on) body  can regulate this in a way where everyone wins.
