California has banned a pet fish genetically engineered to glow, citing ethical concerns. Do you agree it should be banned?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 5, 2003
“I don’t agree with the need to ban a fish. We owe it to ourselves to find things out. That doesn’t mean it’s right or wrong.”
“No. I think we’re all getting too worked up about a pet. I understand food, but not a pet.”
“I would have to say I agree. It just seems like it’s going against nature.”
“You know what they say, ‘It’s not nice to mess with Mother Nature.’ It’s kind of scary for us to start making new species.”
