Scientists are now performing experiments on 13-day-old human embryos
A shocking new report indicates scientists have found a way for human embryos to live outside the womb for 14 days, which is a record, so they can be experimented on for a longer period of time.
Leading pro-life advocates are outraged that scientists would specifically create unique human beings to purposefully experiment on and later destroy just for research. They are worried scientists will continue creating more unborn human people who will be subjected to research for a longer duration of their embryonic life.
In a piece made public today, commentators Insoo Hyun, Amy Wilkerson, and Josephine Johnston encourage research groups to culture human embryos beyond 14 days, and continue experimenting on them, exceeding the long standing guideline and, in some countries, legal limit that no research be done on human embryos past 14 days’ post-conception.
Here’s more on the grisly research:
A human embryo has been grown in a laboratory for twice the length of time than was previously possible in a breakthrough that could “revolutionise” medicine but also raises fresh ethical questions about when life begins.
Since scientists first fertilised an embryo in a test tube in 1969, they have never managed to keep one alive for long after the point at which the foetus implants in the womb, normally about seven days.
