So, perusing facebook this evening a friend of mine posted THIS on her wall.
Now, I often hear of a mother who is hospitalized, or having milk supply issues and needing a nursing mother to donate their milk to help them out and get on track with nursing. It’s pretty wonderful that the support exists out their for struggling nursing moms. I, in my own personal private mind/heart, feel that it would be so hard for me to feed my child someone else’s breast milk, BUT in the very same breath, I’d much prefer feeding them a humans milk verses some sort of formulated milk from a can. HOWEVER, that said…. a cow that can emulate a humans breast milk? Hmmmm…… that is not only mind-boggling, but just plain gross.
Just think…. someone out there thought, “AH, yes, I will make my next millions ($) by cloning cows, altering their DNA so that they can make human breastmilk to sell on the grocery store shelf!” AND, just think of the horrors it offers those who need/want an ‘out’ out of breastfeeding their own infant. They will have the option to bottle feed, and *think* (and probably truly feel) they are doing ‘best’ by their baby!
SOOOO scared that this could even be a reality.
