Scientists hope to create human embryos for organ harvesting after breakthrough with mice



A development in stem cell research is being hailed as a breakthrough for those suffering infertility, miscarriage, or requiring organ transplants but also portends a chilling future straight out of dystopian science fiction.

CNN reported that a team of researchers has just published a paper in the peer-reviewed journal Nature announcing that, after 10 years of work, they have successfully used stem cells to create a mouse embryo possessing functioning organs without the use of sperm or egg cells.
