Gender kits and human-animal chimeras
Now here’s a scary thought – sex selection tests used for selective abortion in Canada. But of course, if you want to cook a frog, you put him in warm water first… This sort of thing is easy for people to accept if they’ve already accepted the idea of abortion-on-demand in general. If elective abortion is permissible, then what’s wrong with opting to perform the procedure for the purposes of sex selection? I find that most people who want to support elective abortion are not willing to support many natural extensions of the idea.
In other news, science fiction ideas are being put into practice in the UK, where human-animal chimeras could be created within months.
I guess almost anything goes when society loses sight of the dignity of the human person and the value of human life.
