Cloning cult leader wants body preserved by von Hagens

The leader of the sect which claims to have cloned a human baby wants to have his “current” body preserved by German plastination doctor Raelian sect, whose real name is Claude Vorilhon, told German paper Frankfurter Allgemeine he had written to von Hagens to make his request.

He said: “I admire this German doctor who carries out plastination. I have written in my will that I want to be plastinated by him after my death.

“Then I will be able to see my old body in a museum and live on in another body as a clone.”

The Raelians, who believe that aliens will come to Earth by 2025 at the latest, promote cloning as a chance for “eternal life” and its scientists are lobbying the US government to reverse its position on human cloning.

Von Hagens welcomed the request from the sect leader, saying: “The donation of his body is very welcome – it makes the use of the body after death more popular.”
