Human-animal embryo study wins approval | Science | The Guardian: “Plans to allow British scientists to create human-animal embryos are expected to be approved tomorrow by the government’s fertility regulator. The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority published its long-awaited public consultation on the controversial research yesterday, revealing that a majority of people were ‘at ease’ with scientists creating the hybrid embryos.”

Since a majority is ‘at ease’ … we need seek no higher standard, eh?
