A Republican state legislator in Mississippi has proposed a ban on human-animal hybrids.
State Rep. William Tracy Arnold (R-Booneville) proposed the ban on using human embryos in any hybrid project. The measure is part of a bill that would restrict abortion, human cloning and assisted suicide. Arnold told wapt.com that he included the ban as a way to restrict embryo research.

Is such a monstrosity even possible?  If it is then I would whole heartedly support such a ban.

This sucks. I want to see Leopard people and bird people. Or whatever. But then again I think more people should wear capes and swords too. :cat:

Hey... I want to be a person who has cat ears and a tail, thus allowing for greater balance and agility on my part. I be able to always land on my feet and have keen senses when it comes to stalking my prey on the battlefields. Just joking...

A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. - Albert Einstein

I wonder if this bill would prevent genetically modified pigs to supply organs for transplant?

The reason behind this proposal (IMO) is religiously based.  Each animal shall only mix with it's own kind and all that.  They are trying to stave off the end times which reportedly shall come when it is like it was in the days of Noah, when there was much strange flesh and God killed everyone who was a hybrid (again IMO)

I dont like the idea of restricting science/research in any way really.

As far as I'm concerned, a human-animal hybrid would just be another form of life, no different (but more sophisticated) than creating a mule.

Once gene splicing becomes practical, I can see governments trying to "preserve" human purity or some kind of nonsense like that.  If we were smart we would make ourselves physically and mentally better using the best genes from the best animals our planet has produced.

The only trouble would be if these changes have to be made before conception, not giving the person a choice in what happens...

I second this statement.

I also want to add;  For those of you who see these as 'pointless, mad scientist experiments', you need to look at all the facts of said experiments.  I saw people in a slight uproar over sewing kittens' eyes shut a couple months ago, and all the criticism was based purely off of emotional knee jerk responses, and wild speculation.  In my experience, people of science are way more ethical than their religious opposites.

Did anyone actually read the entire article? Its basically a hidden agenda against abortions of any kind. Just mixed up with some nonsense about hybrid experiments so people would jump on board because they dont want donkey babies or whatever. Real perpose whole different story imo

One of area of science that needs to be strictly monitored globally but not necessarily banned. It is science after all. But in the current state of humanity I have no problem with an outright ban on this science. It would be misused.

But I believe the meat of the meat of the bill is the later parts and the beginning is the shock and awe. Thats why legislation aka pork needs to be somewhat related. In this case I dont believe they do.
