Will the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta keep this pathogen? Seems like something they would do.
The purpose of creating this pathogen... according to those creating it....is to enable the creation of vaccines to counter it. I think I covered that point in my OP.
It's an entirely false argument that the ethical scientific community is already taking them to task on.
In direct answer to your question though, It seems they would keep it. There wouldn't be any point in creating it if they didn't.
The question then becomes: What is the REAL reason for creating it...?
