ANIMAL-HUMAN EMBRYO RESEARCH IS APPROVED
I haven't posted much (if at all) on the the cloning/embryo research issue, but this is an idea who's time should not come. While I'm sure that the purpose, as the article states, is research into disease and to make the world a better place and all of that, it's creepy in the extreme.
Cytoplasmic hybrids, they call them. The name itself make the hairs stand up on the back of my neck
That they say that "they will not be used in therapy" and of course, "It's illegal to implant them in the womb". Oh sure, that makes me feel better.
