This is utter madness on the part of some very stupid people called biotech scientists. They should all be confined to hermetically sealed laboratories along with their abominable creations and never ever let out again.

And here was me thinking that people with intelligence would understand the importance of the genetic integrity of nature. How sadly wrong I am.

Unable to sign - have tried several times. Would have left a comment "Too risky, not enough research, no specific regulations - don't do it."
Thanks anyway Kathy.
