Deformed Child Eight million babies born with defects, none of them are cloned
Almost eight million children world-wide are born with a serious genetic birth defect each year, according to the first comprehensive global analysis of the problem conducted by the March of Dimes health agency. Their report reveals at least 3.3 million under-fives die annually because of a serious birth defect. and an estimated 3.2 million of those who survive may be mentally and physically disabled for life. On top of this, hundreds of thousands more are born with serious birth defects linked to exposure in the womb to alcohol, or infections such as rubella or syphilis - but these are not included in the 8 million listed.

The Prophet RAEL made the following statement today:
So almost 8 million children are born every year with serious genetic birth defects...that's 6 % of the births... but the people and the media worry only about the possible genetic birth defect of cloned babies...
