Science-fiction is now becoming science-fact as things that were once considered taboo or impossible are no longer morally objected to. The laws of nature and God are being broken for the sake of science and the claim that it's going to save lives! This sounds like a Michael Chriton novel waiting to happen. This past year, MIT Technology did a piece on the subject laying out exactly what's involved with this process.
Animals are now being injected with human DNA in hopes of growing human limbs and organs on animals for the purpose of harvesting for transplants. But wait, isn't there a chance that animals could grow more than human limbs and organs. What if we create a chimera? That's actually far more likely than you'd think. For the sake of science, we could be creating creatures much like those found in H.G. Wells's The Island of Doctor Moreau. And we all know how that turned out.
