The Clonaid Society, created by the founder of the Raelian movement, is selling online what it claims are “cloning machines” to further efforts to clone humans around the world.
The machine was created by Korean scientists, who are sect members.
Dubbed the RMX 2010, it makes possible a nuclear fusion operation aimed at obtaining a human clone embryo which in theory could be implanted in a woman’s uterus to start a pregnancy.
“Not only are we hoping to be the first to clone a human being, but we also want to contribute so that the cloning efforts can multiply everywhere on the planet, helping to cure all diseases and improve the human race,” said Rael, founder of the Raelian sect and the Clonaid company.
Rael hailed the fact that the US had yet to pass an anti-cloning law as “a huge victory”.
“Five countries are now fully engaged in cloning: China, Sweden, Britain, Israel and Saudi Arabia,” he said in a release.
