Friends:

It has just been announced that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) seek to amend Section IV and Section V of the NIH Guidelines for Human Stem Cell Research to include creating ‘Chimeras;” that is, combination of Human and Animal cells: Next Steps on Research Using Animal Embryos Containing Human Cells.

This is obviously an abomination.

The NIH is taking comments from the public for the next 4 weeks—make yours one of them.

The public comment form is located here: NIH consideration of certain research proposals involving human-animal chimera models

The deadline is September 4th, 2016.
