CHIMERAS—THE INHUMAN ETHICAL CRISES Crying Out For Christians To Get Involved

The bioethicist says it’s time for Christians to speak up against research that involves the mixing of human cells or genes with those of animals.


The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is proposing lifting a ban on use of tax funds for research that merges human stem cells with animal embryos, which could potentially create creatures that are part human/part animal – often referred to as “chimeras.” “Literally, the devil is in the details here,” the bioethicist continues.


“The more and more that goes, the more and more that is an open door, we could possibly see the introduction of human genes into animal embryos and grow some kind of hybrid being. I would completely object to that.”
