A company founded by a religious group that believes humans were created by extraterrestrials said Friday that it has created the first human clone — a 7-pound baby girl it calls Eve.
“I am very pleased to announce that the first baby clone is born,” said Brigitte Boisselier, the scientific director of Clonaid and a bishop in the group, called the Raelians. “She was born yesterday at 11:55 a.m. in the country where she was born. She is fine.”
Boisselier refused to disclose where Eve was born but did reveal that the mother is a 31-year-old American citizen. She said Eve was created using DNA from the mother’s skin cells and is a twin of her mother.
