They said they wouldn’t do it, but of course they did. Scientists working in China — where else? — have constructed embryos that are part human and part monkey.
This technology is still a long time from the potential for human application, but it presents issues we need to address now.
It is easy to mock this movement and to not take it seriously. That’s how it will win.
