After a long debate, The Senate approved with 68–32 votes a budget of $250 billion to continue with the controversial creation of hybrid beings by mixing human and animal genetic material.
The bill called the "Endless Frontier Act," was introduced by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, according to Life Site on June 14.
Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) referred to the ethical incompatibility and the need to establish clear definitions on the matter in an attitude of submission to international competition.
"We shouldn't need to clarify in law that creating animal-human hybrids or 'chimeras' is ethically unthinkable, but sadly the need for that very clear distinction has arrived," said Lankford, who, along with Sens. Mike Braun R-Ind.), and Steve Daines (R-Mont.) sought to criminalize the creation of such creatures.
