Animal-human embryos deserve human rights!

LONDON (Reuters) - Hybrid animal-human embryos created for medical research should be viewed as human and permitted to develop into children, Roman Catholic bishops have urged the British parliament.

Scientists want to use the hybrid embryos -- known as "chimeras" after the mythical half-man, half-animal creatures -- to understand better and find cures for illnesses such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and cystic fibrosis.

Under draft legislation to be debated in the British parliament this year, the chimeras would have to be destroyed within 14 days and it would be against the law to implant them in a woman's womb.

But Catholic bishops of England and Wales want women to have the right to bear the chimeras, which would be more than 99 percent human, as their own children, they told a parliamentary committee examining the legislation on Tuesday.

In their submission to the committee, the bishops said:

"It should not be a crime to transfer them, or other human embryos, to the body of the woman providing the ovum, in cases where a human ovum has been used to create them."

"Such a woman is the genetic mother, or partial mother, of the embryo; should she have a change of heart and wish to carry her child to term, she should not be prevented from doing so."

Scientists, who have been pushing for approval of hybrid embryos because of a shortage of human eggs for research, said the bishops misunderstood the science.

"If we are using cow eggs, there is no woman involved," Dr Stephen Minger, stem cell researcher at Kings College in London, told Reuters on Wednesday.

Eggs from animals, such as cows or sheep, would be stripped of their nuclear and species identity, he said. Human cells would then be placed in the empty egg vessels, creating stem cell lines for research.

"Using non-human eggs is really just a pragmatic way of accelerating the pace of research," Minger said.

"And we think it is more ethically justified to use non-human eggs rather than ask women to donate for research that is still very much in its infancy."

Britain is a leading centre for stem cell research, attracting scientists with a permissive environment that allows embryo studies within strict guidelines. The government has appointed a committee of legislators to recommend the best way to allow hybrid embryo research.

The bishops said they opposed creating embryos purely for research, but wanted to minimize harm to such life once created.
And ya know, when the animal-fetus child is born the church is gonna start screaming, "THIS IS AN ABOMINATION AGAINST GOD!"

Re: Animal-human embryos deserve human rights!

Yeah i agree completely, the day the childs born the pope is gonna say, "It's an abomination, I never agreed with it" and then everyone in the church is gonna follow suit like a row of dominoes, pathetic, following a figurehead like that!

Re: Animal-human embryos deserve human rights!

Damn it, why couldn't I have been born into a later generation? I wanna be a fucking hybrid. I wanna be half-cat. D:

Or maybe half-dog.

That would be so cool.

//slightly out of her mind

But yeah - Catholic church is totally gonna flip if/when push comes to shove. Then they'll start denying this just like they did the exorcisms.

Yeah, I agree with what everyone else said. The Pope is going to want them extrerminated once they're born. But the funny part is that if they are allowed to be born, since they're part-human, killing them would be murder. So the Pope will have to deal with it or hire hitmen to kill them all. Now that's a funny thought, the Pope hiring hitmen.

I don't think they'll live long as well.

@LN: see, they'll die before they can kill you! =D
