By MARIA CHENG, AP Medical Writer CHESTER, England - In an evolutionary twist, Flora the Komodo dragon has managed to become pregnant all on her own without any male help.

The Roslin Institute, near Edinburgh, Scotland, said it is considering applying to the government's fertility authority for a license to carry out the procedure, known as therapeutic cloning. Ian Wilmut, who led the team which created Dolly, said it would be "immoral" not to use therapeutic cloning for...
