    Right about...here.
    ...yikes?

    Why would they want to make human-animal hybrids? That's just...weird.

    I just read a bit more of the article. Looks like they're trying to create stem-cells for research. The cybrid embryo must be destroyed at 14 days, which is the point when it would start to change.

    I think they're looking for another way of producing stem-cells rather than through aborted fetus' and whatnot. A re-newable resource of stem-cells.

    I don't think i fully agree with it still (this is getting to be a really fucked up time, technologically speaking heh), but at least they aren't (read: yet) looking at raising an actual chilf. (...a child/calf hybrid? [​IMG])
