“Chimera Embryos”: Scientists Are Now Creating Human-Animal Hybrids



Melissa Dykes – May 26, 2016

We’ve hit a new point in our scientifically forced evolution: scientists are creating human-animal embryos now.

Using human stem cells inserted into an animal embryo after a gene for a specific organ has already been deleted, scientists hope the animal, carried in another host animal such as a pig or a sheep, will grow the human organ instead of its own.

The ultimate goal of this is to force animals to grow human organs for transplantation into humans with terminal diseases, but the potential implications here are staggering.
