WORLD WIDE WEB, Dec 10 (LSN)  In the cover story of the December 14, 1998 issue of Newsweek’s U.S.  Edition, authors Sharon Begley and Daniel Glick provide a glimpse into the dark world of research and experimentation with human embryos. “Eying the Fetal Future,” although not written from a pro-life perspective, exposes the existence of once disbelieved macabre practices.  The article notes that “a number of” biotech firms are creating embryos human beings—for the purpose of experimentation. “Presto: embryos to order, and the beginning of Orwellian ‘embryo farming,’” says the magazine. The piece also notes that since “fetuses are considered cadavers it is legal to use transplanted fetal cells such as neurons in experiments to treat disease.” Thus body parts from aborted babies have been used for experimental treatments in the US for Parkinson’s disease, Diabetes, Spinal-  cord injury, and Huntington’s disease.
