Scientist Details Failed Attempts at Reproductive Human Cloning
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A maverick scientist has written the first-ever paper published in a medical journal that details attempts at reproductive human cloning. Dr. Panayiotis Zavos of Kentucky claims to have tried and failed five times to create a cloned human baby -- something pro-life advocates and the scientific community strongly opposes.
Zavos first announced in January 2004 that he was trying human reproductive cloning, but he said at the time that he failed in an attempt to clone a baby, though he wouldn't provide any more information.
Zavos failed in a second effort, according to a September 2005 announcement.
He has published a new paper of his cloning exploits in a journal called the Archives of Andrology. He says the cloned human embryos he claims to have made consisted of only four cells.
Now that he has failed five times to create human life, why doesn't he try at least once to terminate it, starting with his own. He won't need 5 times if he just uses a good Colt .45 Auto which has been known to correct his medical condition quite well the first time, every time. His condition? Why acute cranial lead deficiency, of course!
