Petition the US Government to stop 'Chimera' (human/animal hybrid) research & creation
Human-animal hybrids – called “chimeras” – are an ethical problem for the scientific community. Thousands of articles debating the ethics of chimera research appear under Google scholar, using only the free and public medical file search. It is unfathomable how many more debates on its ethical implication might take place in private within the scientific community.
Petition the United States government to restrict and/or ban human-chimera research due to it being unethical, unnecessary, and contrary to the rights given to human life under the Bill of Rights in the constitution, and a violation of human dignity by signing the petition and passing it on.
By signing this petition, you are agreeing to several things:
1. That chimera research and creation has a grave potential to be highly unethical and should be subject to government investigation, if not permanently stopped.
2. That the stated primary needs met by chimera research and creation – organ donation – is closer to being met by 3D printing than by chimera research and creation (CR&C), and therefore CR&C is not a necessary service.
3. That harvesting organs out of “animals” is an unethical principle at the cost of appropriate animal husbandry and even scientific treatment of animals as test subjects.
4. That chimera research and creation violates the essential principle of human dignity that the founding fathers of the America Republic recognized as objective found in human beings, and further conformed to by subsequent leaders of our nation - leaders like Washington and Lincoln, the latter being someone who brought the concept of human dignity to one of the most oppressed group of people in American history.
5. That all chimera research and creation ought to be brought to an immediate halt by the US Government until its ethicality and necessity for the greater good of the human race are both either guaranteed or dismissed. By allowing it to continue unregulated and unreported on, the U.S. Government as a body is potentially allowing abuse of human lives.
Please sign the petition and pass it on. Contact your representatives.

The philosophy behind chimera research has disastrous implications for all peoples, especially marginalized groups.
