Sex selection: no. Human-animal hybrids: yes.

They're half right, but they're still half wrong. All it means is that they are half guilty of a crime against human dignity, not to mention that, for each crime, a human life is created (hybrid) and destroyed for the sake of research. Now I have nothing about research at all, but what is the point of this dabbling in things best left alone when viable treatments can instead be found via cord blood and adult stem cell research, which has resulted in 72 successful treatments already? Why this obsession with embryonic stem cell research which has achieved zero treatments so far?
