Once again, ScrappleFace hits it right on the nose:
The journal Nature revealed today that scientists in South Korea have perfected a technique to produce 1,000 abortions of cloned dogs for every two live births.
Scientists at Seoul National University performed multiple surgeries on 123 anaesthetized dogs and attempted to implant 1,000 embryos, resulting in a mere three pregnancies and two live births. One pup died after three weeks leaving only ‘Snuppy’, an Afghan hound incubated in a yellow lab.
“Although this kind of abortion-clone work is in the early stages,” said a lab spokesman, “the application of this procedure to humans looks promising–especially in countries like the United States and China, which have vigorously-competitive abortion industries.”
