Human animal hybrids have been in London labs for years in an effort to cure diseases. But, will we really learn anything by mixing our species with another?
Don’t worry, the hybrids aren’t walking the streets…at least not yet. A committee of scientists warned that if this all goes “too far” we could possibly have a Planet of The Apes scenario on our hands in the future. Scary thought, isn’t it?
Since the Human Fertilisation Embryology Act was introduced in 2008, scientists have dabbled with various human and animal embryos, mixing a bit of the two to create some odd mix that is rather creepy to think about.
Scientists use animal eggs and fertilize them with human sperm or mix human cells with animal embryos.
Law makers are disgusted by the idea of mixing a human and animal together, as they should be. Who knows what type of monster will be created if scientists keep playing God?
“I argued in Parliament against the creation of human animal hybrids as a matter of principle. None of the scientists who appeared before us could give us any justification in terms of treatment. Ethically it can never be justifiable – it discredits us as a country. It is dabbling in the grotesque,” said one member of Parliament.
So, what’s next? Will scientists create human animal hybrids grown in labs and then released into society? Science, while it does serve the world well in many aspects, can also be quite dubious at times. Do we really know what is going on behind closed doors? More importantly, shouldn’t we know?
