Clone?!

"The controversial Italian doctor Severino Antinori has announced that the first human baby clone will be born in January 2003."

"Dr Harry Griffin, the deputy director of the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh, where Dolly was born, said: "There are many losses before implantation, during pregnancy, and many cloned animals die within a few hours or days of birth. So it's a very risky procedure; and there's no reason to suppose it's going to be any easier in humans than it is in those species which have been cloned so far."

If I remember correctly, it took 200+ tries to produce Dolly. I've often wondered what sort of creepy creatures came before the one we could identify as a sheep - and extending these thoughts to the realm of humans really freaks me out...
