Introducing CowMan And RabbitManMay 28, 2008
In what seems stranger than science fiction or the South Park episode with the mad scientist creating new life forms — and certainly far creepier — the British Parliament has given its approval for the creation of animal-human embryos for research. As Dave Barry would say, I am not making this up.
From the Associated Press:
The process involves injecting an empty cow or rabbit egg with human DNA. A burst of electricity then is used to trick the egg into dividing regularly, so that it becomes a very early embryo, from which stem cells can be extracted.
Who needs human cloning when you can have CowMan or RabbitMan?
