The Kansas House of Representatives stepped in and preserved my God-given right to grow human brains in chickens
so that I can feed my vast army of zombies.
A proposed ban on creating human-animal hybrids died Friday when the House cut the heart out of a bill and ended debate early on the issue.
The vote was 63-52 against the proposal from Rep. Mary Pilcher Cook, R-Shawnee, to make it a felony to create or attempt to create a hybrid embryo or “nonhuman life form” with human brain tissue.
The bill roughly matched Sam Brownback's chimera bill
. Both bills would block ongoing research into the mechanisms of various brain disorders, and attempts to cure them. Research that I highlighted previously is targeting a disease called Batten's disease
. A Phase I trial of a stem cell therapy for the disease is about to begin at a hospital in Oregon
