He was commenting on the claims by the controversial international cloning group Clonaid that its sixth cloned baby was born in Sydney on Feb. 5. Talking to local TV Nine Network, the minister said human cloning is dangerous, illegal and immoral. Opposition health spokeswoman Julia Gillard also said Clonaid'sclaims are disturbing, pointing out that the federal parliament has unanimously passed legislation to outlaw cloning in Australia. The Clonaid said on its website that the boy is "perfectly healthy" and seven other cloned babies are expected in a fortnight. It claimed that the cloned child born in Australia was "not conceived within Australia and therefore adheres to Australian cloning laws."
