Derived from Homer's book the Illiad, many people think of a giant lion with the wings of a dragon and a snake as a tail. A chimera can actually be two things: one.) an animal with conflicting genes, for example, having one blue eye and one green. two.) a scientific creation that does not occur in nature compsing of two or more different animals. The first option is the most common. Though many do not realize it, we see chimric animals often. But, now, scientists in China have successfully fused human embryo with rabbit eggs. They allowed the chimeras to grow for several days before destroying them.
There are other stories still of putting human brain matter in mice, using human blood in pigs, purely for the use of medical expirements and regrowing human body parts, such as the ear. But, one has to think, if this chimeras are part human, are they allotted certain rights? If so, then wouldn't it be a crime to experient on them, play with their plays. Some believe not. Stating that chimeras are completely unaware of what is happening to them. While others protest that the scientists are messing in God's territory.
Whatever your view point, all can agree that this new form of subhumans can be benificial, but at the same time, unconstitutional. This new development only begs the question: What are we getting ourselves into?
