Ohio Senate Passes S.B. 243, Ohio's Ban on Human-Animal Hybrid

MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- Ohio Christian Alliance President Chris Long made the following statement, "For the past seven years, OCA has been working tirelessly with members of the Ohio Legislature to ban embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, and in recent years, animal-human hybrid.

Science has advanced to the point where DNA from animals and humans can be intermixed in scientific laboratory experimentation. This is simply outrageous! Animal-human hybrid research is currently being conducted in England, which many in the international medical community now consider to be a rogue medical state. It is unknown how many U.S. laboratories are currently conducting similar research. Our office has been working with State Senator Steve Buehrer and other members of the Ohio Senate for the past three years to introduce this legislation. We commend the following State Senators for their co- sponsorship of this vital legislation: Senators John Carey, Kevin Coughlin, Keith Faber, Bob Gibbs, Tim Grendell, Shannon Jones and Tim Schaffer."

Dr. David Prentice of the Family Research Council states, "Creating 'experimental humans' through nuclear transfer cloning or as animal-human hybrids is an unethical use of science, and will not lead to useful medical treatments for patients. The focus should be on ethical and successful research that puts the patients first."

Ohio Christian Alliance believes that no human life should begin and end as the subject of an experiment. We attest that a process that knowingly encourages human life to be created, manipulated for research, and ultimately destroyed is immoral and should be prohibited. The research facilities in this state that did not oppose this legislation concur by their actions that ethical guidelines in the field of science do exist and that there are barriers that should not be breached. All who believe that human life, including nascent human life, is a unique and precious gift from our Creator have an obligation to support efforts to ban it."
