(NewsTarget) Who needs aborted babies for organ and tissue harvesting when you can just create an unlimited amount of embryonic human life in a petri dish? This is what an Israeli firm called Renewal Bio is reportedly now doing.
Piggy-backing off a similar concept that was unveiled by a research team at the University of Cambridge, researchers at Renewal Bio say they are currently in the process of developing human embryos from stem cells using “artificial womb technology.”
According to reports, these stem cells already produce beating hearts, intestinal tracts, and even brains, meaning they are human. But they skip the process of having to go into a woman’s womb and tear an actual baby limb from limb in order to extract the desired body parts.

Renewal Bio says the goal of the project is to create a steady supply of human baby tissue for organ transplants and other “anti-aging procedures,” to quote CBN News.
Instead of requiring the natural combination of sperm, egg, and fertilization, the company’s stem cell technology allows babies to be created and assembled artificially outside the womb.
“These people are creating human beings in a petri dish,” writes Jazz Shaw for Hot Air. “There’s just no way to put this in a kinder fashion.”
“Does the fact that there was no egg or sperm involved in the process make that any less true? Is the resultant embryo any less of a human being because of that technicality?”
