Ariz. gov signs law against making 'human hybrids'
Arizona Daily Star ^

Posted on 05/08/2010 7:40:04 PM PDT by SandRat

Arizona is joining Louisiana in prohibiting scientists from creating "human-animal" hybrids.

Louisiana enacted its law last year, and Gov. Jan Brewer signed the Arizona legislation into law on Friday.

The Arizona statute effect in July. It prohibits human cloning through various means, including fertilizing human eggs with nonhuman sperm and vice versa. It also makes it a crime to knowingly destroy human embryonic stem cells during research.

As in Louisiana, supporters of the Arizona legislation said it would prohibit human cloning and protect the dignity of human life at its earliest stages.

Critics variously ridiculed the bill and said it could turn away promising research.

Too late. Human Hybrids have already been done. Mixing human genes with a JackA**. They're called Democrats.

SandRat, hope you're not a hybrid.

The liberals are going to HAVE A FIT, since they won’t be able to play God, at least in this area, in AZ.

They’ll just have to get their jollies in other states.

Actually I am glad these laws are being signed. The freak libs and “scientists” will engage is God playing freakish cloning.

They already make mice with human immune systems. I think that’s a hybrid. The purpose is to test out a human immune system without doing the test on a human. I don’t think I see a problem with that.

The libs do not need genetic engineering to create a new life form. They already have it: Leftist Rats!

Sometimes, mixing species is just plain wrong
and this nightmarish enterprise is not very funny.

It's not a Photoshop image. It's very real. The article is here.

Sure. Being able to grow new organs or tissues for people is an amazing advancement of science. We eat cows, lambs, dogs, cats, pigs and horses, why not use mice to grow new organs?

I would have to see the text of the law to see exactly what ramifications this would have for scientific research.

There are many cases where a researcher might want to put a human gene into an animal in order to study its effects and manipulate the system without doing research on a human. I do not know if this law would consider such an animal a hybrid, thereby removing this tool from our arsenal.

It also makes it a crime to knowingly destroy human embryonic stem cells during research.

What does this mean?

If any test, cell typing or whatever, is done to the umbilical cord or the placenta after birth, and this is regarded as research, and then the umbilical cord or the placenta, that both contain embryonic stem cells, is destroyed, then this is illegal. Very strange.
