Bunnygirls to demonstrate outside Parliament over Human/Animal Hybrids


A FUTURISTIC demonstration is to take place outside Parliament on Monday afternoon (19NOV) when  'cowboys' and 'bunnygirls’ seek to remind members of the House of Lords of the implications of passing the Government’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill.


Men dressed waist upwards as cows but as humans below the belt will be joined by women dressed as rabbits above the waist as a graphic reminder of the nature of the ‘science fiction experiments' which may soon become reality.


The House of Lords will open the debate on the Bill on Monday which, opponents say, opens up a number of contentious issues, not least of which is the intention to legalise the creation of animal-human hybrid embryos.


Andrea Minichiello Williams, one of the organisers of the demonstration said: “The feeling in Parliament is that this is not an issue that the British public is particularly concerned about.  However, most people are largely unaware of this proposal. When you tell them what the Government are proposing they are usually horrified.


“On Monday a demonstration will be taking place outside parliament, consisting of 'cowboys' and 'bunnygirls’ which will dramatically alert the public to the kind of 'science fiction experiments' which may soon become reality.”


The HFEA is expected in the next two weeks to issue the 1st licences allowing scientists to create these embryos. The fact that they are doing this before Parliament has decided the issue has caused great concern, and two groups, the Christian Legal Centre  and Comment on Reproductive Ethics (CORE), are  considering bringing a legal challenge against them.


Ends.
