To whom it may concern: I write to you today in opposition of the proposed approval of the introduction of meat from cloned animals being introduced into the market. Cloning of animals is not a process which can be compared to the cloning of plants for food. Animal genetic manipulations will eventually lead the scientific community down the slippery slope towards human cloning.

Currently, there is no identified need to introduce this process. Animal disease has been a part of the natural process for all time, and we have dealth with it through medicine and other administrative practices. Genetic manipulations manipulate the natural order and leads us in a terrible direction.

It is ovbious that the intention is to make people more comfortable with cloning so that some day human genetics can be manipulated. I find it quite disturbing that all the literature placed on your web site futhers the cause of cloning, in particular, your link to the "Myths about Cloning". Seems to me that the regulatory agency is trying to influence public opinion regarding this matter.

Again, I am strongly against the introduction of cloned meat into the public supply. Sincerely, Remi P. Fleuette
