Japan Approves Scientist's Plan to Create World's First Humanimals

Linky: https://gizmodo.com/japan-approves-s...t-h-1836823089



For the first time, a government is supporting a plan to create animal embryos with human cells and bring them to term, resulting in a type of humanimal known as a human-animal chimera.

According to Nature, a committee from Japan’s science ministry signed off on a request by researchers to grow human pancreases in either rats or mice, the first such experiment to gain approval since a government ban was reversed earlier this year.

“Finally, we are in a position to start serious studies in this field after 10 years of preparation,” lead researcher Hiromitsu Nakauchi told the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun.

Researchers have previously created human-animal embryos, such as sheep and pig embryos with human cells, but those pregnancies were terminated after a few days or weeks. This experiment aims to eventually bring chimera embryos to term, resulting in the birth of real, living, breathing humanimals.
Well.... that ought to make cosplaying easier. Although this might blur the lines in the 46 states where bestiality is illegal. Not a problem in Hawaii, Wyoming, New Mexico, West Virginia and DC where it's business as usual!

Why am I not surprised that of all countries, it's Japan that's doing this.

We can all pretty much guarantee the first animal/human hybrid will have tentacles.

I'm just glad Simon MacCorkindale isn't around to have to see this.

This is happening because of Japan's infatuation with Hello Kitty.

Oooo, imagine the pornography they will make (and Japan has the craziest porn as it is, already with animals sometimes )

I predict a golden age of live action hentai. Or worse, an age of live action remakes, kind of like Disney is doing now, but with tentacles.

I always wanted to fuck my sushi. Now, it just might be possible.

Hopefully hairless. We have enough problems.
