We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Wanted: Surrogate for Neanderthal Baby

22nd January 2013

Read it.

GenomeWeb caught what must be an interesting Q&A with George Church in Germany’s Spiegel Online (I can’t personally attest to the original story as it is behind a paywall). The Harvard Medical School geneticist is quoted as saying that eventually, an “adventurous female human” will be needed to be the surrogate mother for the first Neanderthal baby in some 30,000 years.

If it can be done, somebody will do it.d

    Rosie O’Donnell would be an obvious choice.

    A match made in heaven.

    I wonder whether the baby/victim will feel just as “adventurous”.
