WEB Notes: This is so far from natural it is not funny. Our Father is not happy with this. Remember the thoughts of our Father during the time of Noah, “it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart,”. What did the Lord say then? “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them,” (Genesis 6:6-7). What is taking place globally today is far worse than any other time in history. Abominations are being openly accepted and righteousness is being pushed to the side.
A handful of scientists around the United States are trying to do something that some people find disturbing: make embryos that are part human, part animal.
The researchers hope these embryos, known as chimeras, could eventually help save the lives of people with a wide range of diseases.
One way would be to use chimera embryos to create better animal models to study how human diseases happen and how they progress.
Perhaps the boldest hope is to create farm animals that have human organs that could be transplanted into terminally ill patients.
But some scientists and bioethicists worry the creation of these interspecies embryos crosses the line. “You’re getting into unsettling ground that I think is damaging to our sense of humanity,” says Stuart Newman, a professor of cell biology and anatomy at the New York Medical College.
