I really don’t know what to think of this,? When you start mixing brain cells of mice and human fetuses ? I don’t know where I stand on that? But I don’t think I like it very much? There’s something not right ? To many unanswered questions.
Although I’m personally against animal experimentation specially cutting animals in gruel inhumane ways, it’s still amazing what these researchers have found. I feel certain that at some point in the future scientists will be able to repair or rebuild damaged human brains.
So are brain defects/injuries/diseases that might be someday cured due to research such as this. Unclear when a fetus becomes a baby, but except for questionable theological/philosophical arguments I see no rational reason to simply assume it happens at conception – so for me early-term abortion is not murder. Late term obviously is, and is generally illegal. Tough call, which is why the Government should largely stay out of it.
I wish more people understood that if we elect representatives who are awash in respect, compassion, and kindness towards others, whatever kind of politics they like is really not that important….basically an all roads lead to Rome kind of thing. From what I’ve read, it’s my understanding that most, if not all, animal research could be replaced by computer modeling. Mice get better treatment in peoples homes than research facilities.
