Human-Animal Embryos

Was thinking of posting something else on my Geminianeyes but this caught my attention instead. First off, I’m horrified, at least that was my first reaction.

The second was “This is so cool! It’s something out of science fiction!”

Third reaction, “I wonder how long it’ll be before someone decides to carry the baby to term and we end up with people like furries or something? Would the baby be confused?”

The longer thought that came to mind was, “They say that they’re going to do research on the cells and destroy the embryos after 14 days. How sure are we that the cells are pure? That is, untainted by non-human cells. Would the research still be viable? Would the results still apply?”

Your thoughts?
