We received this alert from Human Life Action (formerly the Bishops' National Committee for a Human LIfe Amendment):
”The National Institutes of Health, (NIH), has recently announced its intention to lift its moratorium on funding research that involves injecting human embryonic stem cells into animal embryos thus creating part-human and part-animal organisms known as chimeras. This means that, for the first time,the Federal government will begin spending taxpayer dollars on the creation and manipulation of new beings whose very existence blurs the line between humans and non-human animals.
”Public comments regarding this unethical research are currently being accepted. However, the window to act is tight; comments close on September 6 at midnight EDT. Comments may be submitted electronically"
- Please read this article from LifeNews so you will know how the creation of chimeras is offensive both biologically and ethically.
- Now please go to the Human Life Action Center to find out exactly how to submit your comments by email. Please note it is too late to submit by postal mail.
Your comments will be counted and will make all the difference!
