The Cutting Edge of Genetic Manipulation – in Louisiana?

Reactionary Republican State Senator Danny Martiny is prepping a bill for the state legislature banning the creation of animal-human hybrids in the state.  The bill also would prohibit placing human embryos in non human wombs or nonhuman embryos in human wombs.  This begs the question – is this a big problem in Louisiana?

I’m on vacation but I just had to share this.  I originally found it on Slashdot, then linked through to the full article.

    Most lawyers and legislators know that the best way to prevent something that is unwanted, no matter what your outlook or political bent, is to stop it before it happens. Otherwise you are pretty much outta luck.

    Although I don’t see too much use for a human/animal hybrid in this world, who knows what the lobbyists scared him with.
