The leader of the Catholic Church in Scotland plans on lambasting Gordon Brown this Easter Sunday for the prime minister's proposal to use animal-human hybrid embryos for medical research. Supporters of the bill believe that the fusion will lead to significant advances in combating multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease.
In his sermon on Sunday, Cardinal Keith O'Brien will call the bill "grotesque," "hideous," and an approval of "Frankenstein" experiments.
If you had a family member suffering from a life-threatening disease, would you want all avenues of research pursued, even if you initially opposed the techniques in the abstract? If you're religious, do the views you hear at services influence your politics?
