What is wrong with human cloning? I have never heard a legitimate argument against it.

Minnesota has a proud tradition of supporting scientific research and innovation. Let's continue to nurture ideas and businesses that are good for patients, good for the economy, and good for Minnesota. This science has the potential to benefit us all.

I'm pretty sure Dayton will veto it (Thank goodness we have Dayton). Then perhaps the "less-government" republicans will try to tack it on as a constitutional ammendment in 2012 to remind everyone "Why did we vote for these folks??"

If this would pass any biotech firm would be nuts to stay here. Once a firm started doing research at any time someone could take them to court saying that it violates the law. Why risk that when 49 other states would love to have high paying jobs in the next medical frontier.

So much for the laser focus on jobs. I guess the Tea Party meant to say that we're going to zap these jobs out of state in the name of religion. Keep it up Minnesota, you're on your way to becoming a cold version of Mississippi.

Way to attract businesses to MN Repubs. My mailbox was full of literature last fall when the repubs declared we need to create jobs in MN. You ran on a platform that Govt can't create jobs and I guess you were right on that one. You haven't done anything in the legislature that will enable MN to create and grow more jobs. Instead, your socialist (and this is true) agenda advocated a religious right policy intent on forcing scientific companies out of MN. Can everybody at least agree these righteous republicans must be voted out in 2012 so we can at least try to retain our scientific community and once again lead the country in scientific research. Vote out the repubs in 2012!!!!

Another job-killing measure by the anti-business Republicans.

If it will create jobs, I'm all for it. Just because it might involve a little human experimentation. If we don't do it, the Chinese will.
