The idea by U.k. scientists is fusing human cells with a rabbit egg, allowing them to harvest stem cells without using human embryos.

My question, of course, is if the egg is 99% human -- shouldn't that then be considered a human embryo? It seems scientists are playing symantics a little bit.

Plus...with 1% rabbit, if they allowed the embryo to full term, what the hell would the progeny look like?

Its not that they are hard up for embryonic stem cells. I think they just like screwing with stuff.

Hey, if semantics works...

Personally I don't like killing things like that all that much, but it's not like I'll stop 'em. If it helps, go for it. I'd love to see where stem cell research goes.

What are many of them researching, anyway? I'd be interested in finding out how and why they do what they do.
