Oh dear, what are the Frankenstein`s up to now?

Guarantee they have tried this one out with humans too, but will not be letting the cameras into that lab just yet!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I don't think we need this sort of technology. I think it's a step in the wrong direction and no good will come from it. Imagine some sociopath millionaire who is motivated purely by profit. He could get cow pregnant then make the cow chemically abort the fetus after a few weeks, then transfer the still alive fetus to an artificial womb and then wait a week and repeat. So he would not need as many breeding stock and he could pump growth hormones directly into the baby calf. Could have thousands of vats and keep growing the calves to the equivalent age of a 2 month old birthed calf so it can be taken from the vat and put straight onto feed. All this could possibly done in half the time it would take naturally. Then it would be cheap steaks for everyone.

Holy **** that's horrible but that actually sounds so logical it would probably happen :cry:

Starting that artilce with the selection from Brave New World is totaly appropriate.  This is step one.  The next step is to create a way to program people with limited ambition and intelligence to be used as labor.  Step three will be killing off those of us that don't think this is a good idea.  Step four will be (insert deity) blasting us back to the stone age.
