The UK parliament retains it's progressive approach to stem cell research, backing human-animal embryo research in a vote yesterday (336 to 176). Makes me optimistic about living in Britain and proud to be a European. Also makes me wonder how long before HAR genes are inserted into other primates, but unfortunately admixed embryos cannot legally be grown beyond 14 days or transferred to a human or animal mother. Still, it's a good start. The parliament also voted to continue allowing the creation of "saviour siblings".
