Hear the 2002 Clonaid conference claiming the birth of the world’s first human clone (RealPlayer)

Dec. 30, 2003 — Several fertility doctors around the world maintain they are planning to clone a human baby. For a time late last year, it seemed possible that human cloning had been accomplished. On Dec. 27, 2002, Brigitte Boisselier held a press conference in Florida, announcing the birth of the first human clone, called Eve.

A year later, Boisselier, who directs a company set up by the Raelian religious sect, has offered no proof that the baby Eve exists, let alone that she is a clone. NPR’s Joe Palca reports on what’s happened in the field of cloning since Boisselier’s 2002 announcement.
