There are many bio-ethical issues that face this generation: human cloning, the ability to influence the genetics of children in the womb and invtro fertilization. This feature looks at group of experiments from the 1920s which tried to make a human/ape hybrid and what we might learn from it for today’s bio-ethical issues.

Today’s guest is Dr. Jerry Bergman, Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Toledo Medical School in Ohio. The Acts and Facts publication published a short article by Dr. Bergman on this topic in their May 2009 edition.
