‘Manimals’: The next frontier in scientific research?

By Mark Hodges:

WASHINGTON, D.C., August 9, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — The Obama Administration is proposing tax funds for researchers to create half-animal, half-human beings for experimentation.

The federal government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced a proposed change in the ethical limits of federally funded research, allowing animal/human “cross-species,” called “chimera” research.

By injecting animal embryos with human stem cells, scientists can create “chimera” hybrids, which can then be used to learn more about human illnesses.

NIH Associate Director for Science Carrie D. Wolinetz told the Washington Times, “These types of human-animal organism(s) … hold tremendous potential for disease modeling, drug testing, and perhaps eventual organ transplant.”

By creating and nourishing these beings, letting the hybrid embryos develop into fully grown animals with human cells and organs, scientists can then use the human/animal for experiments, ostensibly to learn about and treat diseases.

Researchers say they might be able to breed sheep, pigs, and cows with human hearts, kidneys, livers, pancreases, and other organs for human transplantation. Pushing the ethical envelope even further, the NIH says creating animals with human sperm and human eggs in order to study human development and infertility is a possibility.
