Biology professor: Experiments will be “damaging to our sense of humanity”
DAVIS, Calif. (ChurchMilitant.com) – U.S. scientists claim they are working on an animal-human hybrid.
Referred to as a “chimera” after the multi-animal blend from Greek mythology, the interspecies embryos are expected to assist those with a wide range of diseases. According to researchers, this includes manufacturing farm animals with human organs developed to be transplanted into critically ill patients.
“We’re not trying to make a chimera just because we want to see some kind of monstrous creature,” claims reproductive biologist Pablo Ross of the University of California, Davis. “We’re doing this for a biomedical purpose.”
The process involves replacing DNA within the animal embryo and filling the gap with human-induced pluripotent stem cells, before fertilizing the embryo in an adult animal. To date, no altered embryos have been allowed to gestate…
