Stem Cell Research
So it's come to this now... The fusing of human cells and cattle egg cells for the purposes of creating a developing embryo. Only to THEN destroy it to harvest the embryonic stem cells of, who knows what to call, this hybrid thing.
They said they had hollowed out the egg cells of cattle, inserted human DNA to create a growing embryo, and then taken it apart to get embryonic stem cells.
I can't believe I'm actually posting this article, but read this:
Capping a months-long scientific and ethics review, British regulators said yesterday that they are prepared to allow the creation of embryos that are part human and part animal for use in medical experiments.
