-- LONDON -- Britain's Parliament Monday backed the creation of human-animal embryos, which some scientists say are vital to research cures for diseases but critics argue pervert the course of nature.**********
The vote means Britain retains its status as a world leader in stem-cell research. Human-animal embryo research is banned in some countries including Australia, France, Germany and Italy.
Parliament defeated an amendment to ban inter-species research – in which human DNA is injected into cells derived from animals – by 336 to 176 after hours of impassioned debate on ethics versus science.
