The Point: Frankenbunny

what happens to a culture that loses its view of humanity as a special creation of God?

Scientists are planning to create a "frankenrabbit" by fusing together human cells with a rabbit egg.

It is hoped the "chimeric" embryos, which would be 99.9 per cent human and 0.1 per cent rabbit, could lead to breakthroughs in stem cell research which could one day cure diseases such as Alzheimer's or spinal cord injury.

Canada has already banned this "high-tech bestiality"; the United States must follow suit, lest the line defining what it means to be human continues to blur. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.

[update] great post here at Acton
