Florida was all set to take Clonaid to court for endangering a baby?s health by cloning it. But there’s no chance of that now, since Clonaid’s chief executive, Brigitte Boisselier, testified under oath that the baby, named Eve, is living in Israel. Since the family is now outside the Florida court’s jurisdiction, the judge dismissed the case.
Clonaid says it’s no longer in touch with the child or its parents, since further contact might lead to the child’s identity being revealed. The parents are afraid she could be removed from their custody. Now we may never found out if Eve is really a clone. Even if she pops up 20 years from now and says, “I’m a clone!” she’ll still have to prove it, which will only be possible if her mother is alive and cooperative.
