Animal-Human Hybrid Embryos a Reality
By Terry Vanderheyden

LONDON, August 9, 2006 ( – UK scientists are calling for a ban on some forms of experimentation, including the creation of animal-human hybrid “chimeras”.

The Scottish Council on Human Bioethics called for a ban on the grisly “science” in a report released Tuesday. According to the, council director Dr. Calum MacKellar said that “Most people are not aware that these kinds of experiments have been taking place in the UK and find it deeply offensive.”

“The fertilisation of animal eggs with human sperm should not continue to be legal in the UK for research purposes,” he added. “Parliament should follow France and Germany and prohibit the creation of animal-human hybrid embryos.”
