    Clonaid claims second cloned baby born

    Associated Press

    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Clonaid, the company that claims to have produced the first human clone last week, said Saturday a second cloned baby has been born to a Dutch lesbian couple.

    Neither baby has been confirmed to be a clone by genetic testing, and mainstream scientists are skeptical of the company's claims.

    Clonaid spokeswoman Nadine Gary said in a telephone interview the child was born Friday night, but declined to say where.

    "It's true that a second baby has been born," she said. "The parents have Dutch nationality, but they are not in Holland."

    Gary said she expects the second baby will undergo genetic testing to show it is a clone, with DNA identical to that of its mother.

    But Thursday, chemist Brigitte Boisselier - Clonaid's chief executive and top scientist - said the parents of the earlier baby were balking on testing.

    The company had promised DNA test results to confirm their claim by the end of this week. Independent scientists say the test should only take a day.

    In television interviews, Boisselier has said the parents of the second baby wanted to remain anonymous.

    Spokeswoman Gary said that, while the parents are Dutch, the birth did not take place in the Netherlands.

    Boisselier is a member of the Raelians, a religious sect that believes beings from outer space created life on earth.

    Scientists have successfully cloned pigs and sheep, but the technology is not reliable and most scientists say it is difficult, unethical and risky to attempt to clone humans.

    Well I heard that bethel has a pubic hair from Fredie franz and they are not far from bringing him back. Only trouble is they don't think the Organisation can hold on long enough until he grows up.

    Personally I don't think Franz's direction or discernment got much better with age. Therefore the Organization might only have to wait until the clone could talk.

    I suppose your right. If they were willing to listen to a 99 year old man.....why not a kid.......same difference except the kid could remember what he wrote and could eliminate "flip flops" in his teaching.
