Pitt team clones monkey embryos.

What the hell are we doing?

The techniques used by South Korean researchers to create the first cloned human embryos have been adapted by a University of Pittsburgh team to produce cloned monkey embryos.

Calvin Simerly of the Pittsburgh Development Center at Magee-Womens Research Institute reported today at the American Society for Cell Biology meeting in Washington, D.C., that three embryos developed to the stage at which embryonic stem cells could be recovered.

But 135 embryos that were transferred to 25 female monkeys failed to produce any pregnancies.
Good lord. Our species seems *eager* to destroy itself. First we breed the ape, then we teach the ape.

The next thing we know, we all will answer to the ape.


It's a madhouse. . . A MADHOUSE!!!
