Attack of the Clones

This in from the Times Online:

Woman “expecting cloned baby”

A woman is pregnant with the world’s first cloned baby, it has been reported. The claim has been made by Rome fertility specialist Dr Severino Antinori at a conference in Abu Dhabi, according to a report in the Gulf News. The doctor’s office has refused to comment on the report. The Gulf News quoted Dr Antinori as saying: “Our project is at a very advanced stage. One woman among thousands of infertile couples in the programme is eight weeks pregnant. We have nearly 5,000 couples in this project now.”

I’m not sure what else to add to this. It was going to happen sooner or later.

I recently read a bit of decent fiction about just this subject. The problem is — if I post the book title and author, I’ll be giving away the enough of the story that it may discourage you from reading it. So I’ll leave it at this — if you e-mail me for the title and author of the book, I’ll be glad to give it to you.
