"the cardinal urged Brown to amend the legislation as a matter of "great urgency and human decency." Cardinal O'Brien noted the "grotesque implications" of the bill, which allows the creation of human-animal "hybrid" embryos, and told the prime minister: "I am appalled that you are promoting" the bill. He added that the bill's provisions "represent a breach of 50 years of ethical medical research."

He's right. It's grotesque and appalling.
