Human Chimeric Experiments

Friend of mine sent me a comment posted by Jeremy Rifkin appearing in Guardian about human chimeric research--for the most part, arguing against it. Honestly, the Dude has not thought about this at great length, but in the brief moments of examination is unclear on the ultimate purpose of such research and is somewhat understanding of the what may happen slippery-slope comments. It's also interesting to note that the U.S. Nat'l Academy of Sciences will be issuing guidelines on such research sometime next month.

A side note, the Dude will be posting less posts per day in the next coming weeks...I'm trying to find time to do sufficient research on assessing the bioethics playing field...toward that end, feel free to post a comment on sites that you know of that have some definite bias (e.g., liberal, religious, secular, etc.) of bioethics.
