Lab Grown Baby Spells a Scary Future
- Lab grown baby news hoax
- State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology, Koltsovo, Russia
- On 17 June 2015, the website World News Daily Report published an article claiming that scientists at VECTOR have created the world’s first completely lab grown baby
- The notoriously fictitious website claimed that Dr. Ivanov and his team from VECTOR gave life to an artificially created young boy named Adam who weighed 400 grams and is barely seven inches (18 cm) tall
To cut it short
The photo that was published on the website is actually an infant named Alexis Clarke, who fought for her life after she was born in 2013 at 25 weeks gestation. Though this particular news is a clear hoax, scientists have been pushing the limits of ethics and morality and we could only use our wildest imagination to really get even a slight grasp of what medical science is capable of achieving in the near future.
