Scientists smash record for human embryos grown in the lab in revolutionary breakthroughEven though the fetus was obviously alive, and its life is admitted to, the death of that human is treated as just more junk protein laying around the lab. When this is off-shored to Korea or Taiwan, the soulless experiments will be extended, as the redefinition of "humanness" is expanded to accommodate ever more inclusive categories. But that is OK, you see, because they have all the moral authority to decide at what point in a life killing is OK, and how to redefine life and personhood as if that makes it moral.Scientists smash record for human embryos grown in the lab in revolutionary breakthrough
"A human embryo has been grown in a laboratory for twice the length of time than was previously possible in a breakthrough that could “revolutionise” medicine but also raises fresh ethical questions about when life begins.
Since scientists first fertilised an embryo in a test tube in 1969, they have never managed to keep one alive for long after the point at which the foetus implants in the womb, normally about seven days.
However researchers at Cambridge University have now grown embryos for 13 days -- a process they only stopped to avoid breaking the current legal limit of about 14 days.
The ability to observe a human embryo as it grows during this “most enigmatic and mysterious” stage of life in a lab should shed new light on genetic diseases and disabilities.
And it could help improve the dismal failure rate of IVF embryos -- currently up to 70 per cent do not successfully implant – and lead to better understanding of miscarriages."

Obscene Science and Dr. Mengele
It is becoming possible that in the near future that Dr. Mengele would appear to be a normal researcher by these morphing standards.
