Human-Animal Clones On Hold? [SK]

New research suggests that combining human DNA with animal (cow and rabbit) eggs will not work for human cloning. It seems the animal eggs lack sufficient power to reprogram human DNA.

Due to a shortage of human eggs, researchers were hoping to use animal eggs which are more readily available and do not carry the risks associated with obtaining human ones.

Nevertheless, the attempt to alter the biological nature of human beings is pressing forward with remarkable speed. Given the moral opposition to such research is dismissed without argument, only scientific hurdles stand in the way between us and a brave new world.

That's sad, but at least for now, the actual science is not cooperating with runaway scientism.
