And starts down that slippery slope:
British scientists have been given permission to perform therapeutic cloning using human embryos for the first time.
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority granted the licence to experts at the University of Newcastle. They are investigating new treatments for conditions including diabetes, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
The controversial decision could open a new era of research by scientists looking for remedies for diseases.
And an era of cloning on a massive scale as a world full of people frightened of disease and death plead for miracle cures at any price.
Do people not realize that huge quantities of human eggs are needed to create the stem cells needed for this research? Unless, of course, human genetic material is inserted into eggs from cows or pigs, which has already been done in Australia and the U.S.
Shades of Dr. Moreau! Regardless of where the host eggs are obtained to clone the embryos that would be destroyed for their stem cells, this is absolutely monstrous. Is this really what John Kerry wants to legalize and support with our tax dollars when he takes office?
