Arizona Bans Catgirls-- No, Seriously

 The fantasy is over-- for Arizona.
 The fantasy is over-- for Arizona.

Apparently the state senate of Arizona isn't content to just make it legal to hassle all Hispanics for their paperwork-- word is that they just passed a bill making it illegal to "intentionally or knowingly creat[e] a human-animal hybrid."

I have no idea why exactly they were so worried about this, but the law prohibits anyone in AZ from attempting to make a human baby with an animal by any means, including transferring a nonhuman embryo into a human, or a human embryo into a non-human.

Apparently Louisiana did something similar back in '09. Seriously?  Why is this something we're worried about? I mean, sure, you might wind up with creeps like Fullmetal Alchemist's Tucker, but surely that's already covered as assault, murder, child abuse, and animal abuse-- enough to get the needle in Arizona OR Louisiana.

So if you're the kind of weirdo who thinks catgirls-- or dog girls or wolf girls or whatever --are actually plausible science and looks forward to it, protip: move away from Arizona. And Louisiana.    (Via Otaku Review.)

You asked, and we delivered: a litter of catgirls.

Funny. Do cat girls fall under "reasonably suspicious"?
 
Someone on the state legislature probably just read The Island of Doctor Mareau. I believe there was also a state government that passed a law that made it illegal to implant microchips into people. They even heard testimony from some woman who claimed she had a microchip implanted into her with out her consent. She said, under oath, it was put into her "nether region", and that her coworkers were secretly activating it like a pager using a special phone number.
 
I actually drink AriZona Green Tea on a regular basis. The other day I was checking to see where it was made. Thankfully, it's made in New York and the AriZona is just a name. The next day I saw them talking about it in the news.

  Wow and I was hoping genetic engineering would get good enough at some point that we could start making hybrids of anything. I know it's still a long way off tell we can change our own DNA safely but I want gills.  
 
I hate your Arizona, the state not people who live there, not only are you trying to kick out the people who lived there before you but you also apparently hate science

Why is everyone beating on science and it getting no funding either i hate everyone still being controlled by religion and preventing experiments

LOL, what the hell.  Is there a thriving genetic engineering industry in AZ or something?

Well it seems much more likely to be dealing with the development of human chimeras for the use in the medical industry.  
 
Chimeras are used in many parts of the medical industry to mass produce a certain drug (like how insulin for use in medicine is produced by recombiant DNA where the DNA sequences for producing insulin are genetically engineered into another lifeform [E. Coli being the first to use this procedure] to mass produce it) or grow human organs or for the study of the effect of human-esque systems (like gentically engineering mice with a human-esque immune system) in chimeras.   
 
I don't think that the state of Arizona was thinking about cat girls or other more obvious human animal hybrids.

@humjkij8u8uk:  I can understand not likely relgion, trust me, but there are moral boundries that science shouldn't cross. Also lets look at the potentale risk, a bybrid could be more sustible to diesease of both of the creatures (Such as human and cat flu) these viruses could easly adabt to be more cautagoius to humans, just like that bam you have an new epidemic. of course medical science wouldn't be able to do any thing be cause they got there hands full with all the other hybrid diseases.
 
 
Any ways i think this is more about not being able to grow human organs in animals, not make humans into cat people. The idea is that you can take the cells of let say a human heat, and put them in the embro of lets say a pig, (Note: this is just the general idea, i proabably not 100% on the science) the big would then grow a human heart instead of a normal pig's heart. the big can still live with the heart, and say you suffer heart failure of some kind, they could just take the copy of your heart from the pig.

@Sombre: Unless you count time that those politicians could have spent on something important. 
 
On the other hand, they might have wound up spending it on something bad, so I guess it could be worse.

This has to do with real life gene tampering, which could become a serious issue in the future........

@ThePsychoGamer:
Yeah, but adsmit that the part on make sex with animal, is kinda crazy. 
 
And, I don't know, if there is no mean to save a embryo except to put him in a animal organism, it's kinda limit, no ?   

More of that, it's not very good to forbid something that has yet to being test : the fact is that nobody really know what this will do.  
 
I don't want to see it done on  unwilling human test subject, but stop it for religious reason is the same that forbidding people watching TV because you believe it will corrupt their soul...

@ Gia 
 
Apparently the state senate of Arizona isn't content to just make it legal to hassle all Hispanics for their paperwork    
This is the part of the law that just pass in the state of Arizona. 
 
Stipulates that a law enforcement official or agency cannot solely consider race, color or national origin when implementing these provisions, except as permitted by the U.S. or Arizona Constitution.    
So I guess are laws are that bad. 
 
Let's look a Mexico law on this matter when you are in Mexico and are a US citizen.  
 

Entry to Mexico: As of March 1, 2010, all U.S. citizens – including children -- must present a valid passport, book or card, for travel beyond the “border zone” into the interior of Mexico.   Entry by any means, for example by plane or car, is included in this requirement.  The “border zone” is generally defined as an area between 20 to 30 kilometers of the border with the U.S., depending on the location.  Stays of less than 12 hours within the border zone do not require a visa or tourist card.

U.S. citizens traveling as tourists beyond the border zone or entering Mexico by air must pay a fee to obtain a tourist card, also known as an FM-T, available from Mexican border crossing points, Mexican tourism offices, airports within the border zone and most airlines serving Mexico. 

Upon arrival in Mexico, business travelers must complete and submit a form (Form FM-N 30 days) authorizing the conduct of business, but not employment, for a 30-day period. Travelers entering Mexico for purposes other than tourism or business or for stays of longer than 180 days require a visa and must carry a valid U.S. passport. U.S. citizens planning to work or live in Mexico should apply for the appropriate Mexican visa at the Embassy of Mexico.

   
 
So who has the hard line when it comes to illegal immigration and dose not.  We in Arizona are just enforceing federal law. 
 
Prohibits law enforcement officials and law enforcement agencies of this state or counties, municipalities and political subdivisions from restricting or limiting the enforcement of the federal immigration laws to less than the full extent permitted by federal law.    
 
So what's the problem here. 
 
If you want to talk silly laws they want to pass in Santa Clara County Calfornia.  Read this news article. 
 
Santa Clara County. 
  
Talk about stupid.

I don't know in all seriousness genetics needs to be tightly monitored and controlled.  It is also quasi illegal to grow human organs in other animals for harvesting purposes already as it is inhumane to the animal and that is likely what the law is aimed at.  I am a big fan of the movie Gattaca and lets just say that is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to major problems that may come from genetics so I am all for any law that puts a hurting on it.

@Kelleth:
Rednecks are in the other south, mostly. 
 
Does Arizona have some problem with beastiality or something? This law sounds straight up dumb. I'm all for advancing genetics and technology and studying evolution and the like. If someone wanted to be a hybrid they can go right ahead (except going out and having sex with the animal). 
 
Some people's worries and idiocies know no bounds.
