Obama Administration Wants to Allow Scientists to Make Human-Animal Hybrids

8

LIFE NEWS REPORTS: The Obama administration announced yesterday that it has flung the door wide open to scientists making grisly human-animal hybrids. After overturning the Bush administration limits on forcing taxpayers to fund embryonic stem cell research, this is the latest move by President Barack Obama to manipulate and destroy human life in unethical experiments.

Here’s more:

The federal government announced plans Thursday to lift a moratorium on funding of certain controversial experiments that use human stem cells to create animal embryos that are partly human.

The National Institutes of Health is proposing a new policy to permit scientists to get federal money to make embryos, known as chimeras, under certain carefully monitored conditions.

One issue is that scientists might inadvertently create animals that have partly human brains, endowing them with some semblance of human consciousness or human thinking abilities. Another is that they could develop into animals with human sperm and eggs and breed, producing human embryos or fetuses inside animals or hybrid creatures.

But scientists have argued that they could take steps to prevent those outcomes and that the embryos provide invaluable tools for medical research.

  1. Most Western countries already allow chimerae, which are usually destroyed after initial cell division, the official reason being “ethical” and the real reason being practical, as they are not really of much use beyond that – they die.
    This paper https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2016-18601.pdf appears to seek the input of the public about the lifting of some directives prohibiting certain fields of medical research, the most interesting of which do not refer to chimerae (already studied at length in most European countries, and of course in China, India and elsewhere) but rather (see the linked pdf document)

    a. human pluripotent cells are introduced into non-human vertebrate embryos, up
    through the end of the gastrulation stage, or
    b. human cells are introduced into post-gastrulation non-human mammals
    (excluding rodents), such that there could be either a substantial contribution or a
    substantial functional modification to the animal brain by the human cells

    There is nothing nice or fun about animal models, they are derogatorily called vivisection and I’m sure everyone would gladly do without it if there were alternatives (e.g. supercomputers). But there are people suffering from terrible diseases and without research there will be no solution medicine can offer them. Even with research, perhaps a cure is going to be found and perhaps it is not. As for this specific research, which I do not do and thus feel no need to ask a shaila about, it may or may not bring life and health to suffering human beings (Yidden and non-yidden) but I’m hardly going to feel incensed about it because of “ethical” “pro-life” xian concerns, expressed by the same people who in nazi germany cared so much for animal welfare.

  2. With all the moral corruption I believe western society has already turned most of the populations into human animals.
