Science Using Genetically Modified Pigs to Grow Human Organs

Scientific progress has been made, a research team in Japan says. What scientific progress might this be, you ask? Scientists are on the verge of having the ability to create human organs from genetically modified pigs. This is done through the injection of human stem cells into animal embryos.

The ultimate goal, as stated by Professor Hiromitsu Nakauchi of Tokyo University, is to generate human organs from induced pluropotent stem cells. This technique, called blastocyst complementation, has already been successful using mice and rats. The next step is to generate functional human organs.

NaturalNews reports the following:

The experiments involved mice that couldn’t grow a pancreas. Why?They were genetically engineered that way. That made newborn mice diabetic because they couldn’t produce insulin. The mice were injected with stem cells from rats with healthy pancreases and as the mice matured they grew pancreases and were no longer diabetic. So a pig would have to be missing a pig organ for it to grow a human organ that would be taken out for placing into a human.

This is double suffering and subsequent often gruesome death for many pigs. Sure, this farm animal suffering and death for greedy human consumption is rampant with factory farming and large slaughter houses. But that should also be stopped.

To paraphrase Ghandi: “A society’s morality can be determined by its treatment of animals.” If you’ve seen any covertly filmed footage of CAFOs (confined agricultural feed operations) or factory farms, or demonic slaughter house activity, you’d be shocked or grief stricken if you have any compassion at all.

Ignoring Natural Healing to Cut, Grab, and Stitch

A serious physical trauma that damages an organ beyond repair creates an understandable motive for human organ transplanting. But any other reason is highly questionable. For example, the diabetic mouse pancreas transplant evoked awe from a physician who saw this as step toward curing diabetes. Replacing the pancreas is the only cure for diabetes?
