This is just my smart-assed take on a serious problem. If you're a diabetic, you may very well owe your life to insulin produced by bacteria that has been hybridized with human DNA. If you have cancer, the most promising treatments have been developed using lab animals that have been hybridized with human DNA. If you've got a chronic heart condition, your life may be saved by an operation to implant a heart valve made from animal tissue.
Those lives seem like a lot to give up just because the President is frightened of furries.
