With the creation of the first synthetic embryo, scientists are at a point of no return

The fearsome future implications of the new report from researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel have caused quite a stir in the international scientific community.

Using no sperm or eggs, researchers created the world’s first synthetic mouse embryo and watched it grow over eight days inside a specially designed bioreactor that serves as a uterus, according to Live Science Magazine.

The article describes what happens inside the artificial uterus. “In the device, the embryos float in small beakers containing the nutrient solution, and all the beakers are locked to a rotating cylinder to keep them in motion. This movement simulates how blood and nutrients flow to the placenta. The device also reproduces the barometric pressure of the rat uterus.”

A statement from the Weizmann Institute explains that the researchers only started with “stem cells grown in a petri dish.” By the eighth day, “all [the embryos] The primary progenitor organs have already formed, including the beating heart, the emerging circulatory system, the brain, the neural tube, and the intestinal tract. “

Comparing synthetic embryos with natural embryos, the researchers note that “their lab-generated models show 95% similarity in both the shape of the internal structure and the pattern of gene expression.” of different cell types.”

Professor Jacob Hanna of Weizmann’s Department of Molecular Genetics is understandably excited about the project, rightly so. This is a huge step forward in being able to create human organs in the laboratory, which is the ultimate goal of this research. In the statement, he said, “Embryo is the best organ generator and the best 3D bioprinter – we’ve tried to simulate what it does.”

For the more science-minded among us, detailed technical information regarding the process can be viewed in a report published Monday in the scientific journal Cell.

This breakthrough is great news for the medical community, especially for those seeking an organ transplant. The prospect that scientists might one day go beyond creating organs and possibly create synthetic human “life” in the lab is horrifying.

Do you believe that one day scientists will be able to create a synthetic human embryo?

While we are unlikely to see synthetic humans anytime soon, I have no doubt that day will come. When it happens, man will have the means to create “life”, as well as the power to end it.

Given the ease with which many are willing to end their lives by abortion, and even some through eugenics, further perverted lives will inevitably have far-reaching and lasting consequences. We are not equipped to deal with it. Is humanity prepared to enter an age with innovation like this while society still doesn’t believe in the holiness of human life?

This is an ethical minefield. What right do scientists, or anyone else, have to create an orphaned life in a lab? What in the world would they discover if they did? What would a human being inside a petri dish look like? Will they have a soul? Will they experience emotions?

Who will take care of them? Who will make the important decisions about their life or death? Images of Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab come to mind.

This is uncharted territory, and while many of us believe we shouldn’t step there, it will be absolutely impossible to stop scientists from moving forward.

It’s almost like watching someone open a Pandora’s box in slow motion. We can only pray that, this time, “hopefully” will be able to get out before the lid is closed.
