Ma! They're Talkin' About Me Again!

And they're playing with your personal toys, again, too!

And who is "they?" Oh, hell...everybody.

Scientists want to play with all the neat little genes and chromosomes and assemble thir own versions of the puzzles known as life forms. They've been doing it for years with plants, and nobody really objected very much. Matter of fact, Big Pharmaceutical conglomerates like Monsanto not only paid the scientists to do it, but they then patented the new life forms. And now Monsanto is well on its way to owning the food you eat.

Then the scientists graduated to playing with sheep and other domestic creatures. And still, nobody objected very much. Now they want to play with human/animal cocktails, and everybody wants to get into the act!

Governments want to pass laws to prevent it:

"Ministers say that the creation of animal-human embryos - created by injecting animal cells or DNA into human embryos or human cells into animal eggs - will be heavily regulated.

"They insist that it will be against the law to implant “chimeras” - named after the mythical creature that was half man and half animal - into a woman’s womb."

And the Vatican want to pass laws that prevent the prevention:

"The bishops...were also anxious to limit the destruction of such life once it had been brought into existence."

Mama, I really fucking need a new planet.
