Animal rights activists fear that if the cells get mixed together, they could end up with cellular fusion, creating a hybrid which would have the features and characteristics of both man and sheep. But Prof Zanjani said: "Transplanting the cells into foetal sheep at this early stage does not result in fusion at all."

That would be awesome! What would we call him? How about Baa-man!   ;D

And this is in America? I'm amazed. I thought humanity would have to rely on less puritanical nations for progress related to genetic modification.

Keep it straight.  The US doesn't like things that involve aborted fetuses but doesn't care about genetic modification.  It's Europe that panics any time someone says "genetics" and doesn't care about aborted fetuses.
