First Human Clone?

Sounds very, very dubious.

"There is a report late Thursday that a Canadian-based group will announce one of its members has given birth to the first human clone. The group has scheduled a news conference for Friday to offer details on the claim. The Raelians, a religious cult based in Quebec, announced on Dec. 18 that the baby was expected to be born in the next 14 days.

A French news agency said the baby girl was born by caesarean section. Brigitte Boisselier told AFP news agency that the birth went "very well." The Raelians, who advocate the cloning of humans, created a company called Clonaid in 1997. The company's web site says its "main goal is to give life to the first human clone."

Boisselier, a biochemist and director of Clonaid, has said that this is the first of five babies the Raelians are expecting. The company's claim is that the girl is the genetic duplicate -- or clone -- of the mother, a woman in her 30s."
