Scientists Look To Create New Species

Scientists Look To Create New Species By Breading Apes With Humans


May 4, 2008
A leading scientist has warned a new species of “humanzee,” created from breeding apes with humans, could become a reality unless the government acts to stop scientists experimenting.

In an interview with The Scotsman, Dr Calum MacKellar, director of research at the Scottish Council on Human Bioethics, warned the controversial draft Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill did not prevent human sperm being inseminated into animals.

He said if a female chimpanzee was inseminated with human sperm the two species would be closely enough related that a hybrid could be born.

He said scientists could possibly try to develop the new species to fill the demand for organ donors.

Leading scientists say there is no reason why the two species could not breed, although they question why anyone would want to try such a technique.

Other hybrid species already created include crossed tigers and lions and sheep and goats.

I read about this a few weeks ago, and I think it is absolutely disgusting. Since when have people thought it was ok to reproduce with animals, b/c that is what they are doing. there are so many moral implications in something like this, I really pray that these types of "experiments" are shut down and then the scientist closely monitored so that they can't just pop back up.
