Followup: Human Clone On the Way

Two and half weeks ago Songdog.net reported the news that Italian fertility doctor Severino Antinori claimed one of the patients in his program was pregnant with a cloned embryo. At the time Antinori's office would not comment, the doctor himself did not provide much detail, and his claims were met with skepticism.

Early Wednesday, April 24, on Italian state television Antinori announced that there are three women (not his patients) who are pregnant with clones. Nine, six, and seven weeks pregnant, to be precise.

I found this in a Reuters story, but Ananova had it first.
