The South Korean newspaper “Joongang Ilbo” reports that the company Clonaid Korea has implanted a cloned embryo into the womb of a woman, who will deliver the human clone early next year.
The human clone was implanted by scientists from the USA and South Korea in April, according to the company Guak Kyong Tae. Human cloning is not legal in South Korea and if the parliament votes to ban the practice, the 20-year-old woman will have to deliver the baby in another country.
Clonaid, the first company to deal in human cloning, belongs to the Raelian sect, which believed that extra-terrestrials began life on Earth and that the human species is a clone from alien life-forms.
