I say, I told you so?
The World Congress of Families International
Secretary Allan Carlson called a decision
to allow the creation of embryos with human and
animal DNA "yet another tragic milestone in the
devaluation of human life."
The decision to allow the procedure was made by
Britain's Human Fertilization and Embryo Authority.
The procedure consists of injecting human DNA into
rabbit or cow eggs, whose own DNA has been mostly,
but not completely, removed to facilitate the
extraction of stem cells for research.
Carlson comments: "These human/animal embryos
are supposed to be destroyed within 14 days - which
is bad enough in itself. But once we start down this
particular slippery slope, what monsters may greet
us at the bottom?"
"What started with the abortion movement in the
early 1970s has led to the euthanasia and cloning
movements and now the first steps toward creating
chimeras (creatures part human and part animal) -
all in the name of human rights and medical
advances. Who's to say that at some point in time
one of these hybrids won't be transferred to a
woman's womb and allowed to gestate?" Carlson
The World Congress of Families is calling on the
British government to reverse its decision to
inflict such horrors on humanity.
