Tigons and Ligers Embryos in petri dish Test tube babies Life cloned Dolly the sheep Fear the world With thousands of Hitlers, Stalins Maos or Trumps Science progresses By leaps and bounds Human Organs grown in animals Or animal organs in humans Are we creating New species Humals or Animans Organ harvesting To reward the rich For their extravagant excesses Or a cure for all Billions of poor will Silently suffer Science unleashed Research for benefitting masses Or seeking the holy grail of Eternal youth and Elixir of life for the rich
This poem is the result of thought process of hearing a discussion on National Public Radio on my way to office yesterday. I do not know the title of the topic of discussion as I heard it somewhere in the middle and did not hear the ending as I reached office before discussion was over. The topic related to growing human organs in animals and harvesting those organs for treating incurable diseases requiring organ transplant. As far as I can understand, it involved stem cell research and DNA and is supported by NIH.
