Rethink on human hybrid experiments

From article:

A radical Government re-think on the law governing hybrid embryos will allow scientists to carry out virtually any work they like – if it is approved by regulators.

The move opens the door to experiments involving every known kind of human-animal hybrid. These could include both “cytoplasmic” embryos, which are 99.9% human, and “true hybrids” carrying both human and animal genes.

In addition “chimeras” made of a mosaic-like mix of cells from different species, and “human transgenic embryos” – human embryos modified with animal DNA – will also be allowed under licence.

Provision has also been made for the regulation of hybrid embryo research to incorporate any unforeseen developments that might arise in the future.

Okay I know that they are very restricted in their research but what if?

Maybe not in England but some other country with less restrictions.

Worth thinking about.

WOG out.
