Im concerned about the ethics of this. What justification is there to bring a single, sentient humanoid into the world where he or she will never find other Neanderthals to breed or communicate with (obviously Neanderthals were also highly social primates). Alongside this, the genetic drive to breed could never be accomplished and its not as if the individual would have any chance of normal friendships with humans with the stigma that will surround their very existence. Who actually that this is anything other than deplorable? I would like to know more about the scientific justification for this, because I can see the massive moral debates and legal and ethical issues this will cause will vastly outweigh any benefits to evolutionary biology

Actually, humans and Neanderthals lived side by side for thousands of years. There is credible evidence that they even bred with one another. Most of the population carry some Neanderthal DNA.
Despite what museum dioramas depict, Neanderthals didn't look that different from us. If you passed one on the street, you'd never know it.
