The lower house of Parliment(UK) has approved the creation of human animal hybrid embryos for scientific stem cell research. Of course, the usual suspects, religious groups, are in an uproar about it. The process involves injecting human DNA into animal ova. The embryos would not be allowed to develop for more than 14 days.
I think this is a good thing. I am all for scientific progress. This will address the stem cell shortage. What’s next, though? Could this lead to animal human infants, for example?
Would the next American administration consider something like this? Obama has said he would lift the federal funding ban, but would he consider something like this? I hope so.
