A confidential source, but internationally known and respected anthropologist,
told me many years ago that he/she was aware of one "experiment" where a
female chimp had been artificially inseminated with human sperm with a
successful fertilization (zygote formation). However, the embryo died
in-utero and/or was spontaneously aborted. This is my "two-bits" of
"hearsay" on the subject, but I consider the source of my hearsay reputable.
