Issue Areas/Comments
I am strongly opposed to the marketing of cloned animal products to the public. Not only is it objectionable to think about drinking the milk of a cloned animal, it is morally questionable, and will open a door to further marketing of cloned animal products. Furthermore, perhaps the by- products of these cloned animals are safe for consumption, but are they as nutritious? I am not convinced as a consumer that the safety and efficacy of these products has been sufficiently studied and do not see the necessity or benefit of them to the US economy. Furthermore, if they are to be put on the market I would demand as a consumer that the FDA mandates labeling for all products that contain cloned animal by-products or meat, so that I can be sure to avoid them.
