SACRAMENTO, Calif. , Feb. 9 /U. S. Newswire/ -- Californians Against Pet Cloning (CAPC) today joined with Assemblyman Lloyd Levine (D-Van Nuys) to introduce legislation to ban the sale of cloned and genetically modified pets in California. Citing animal welfare and consumer protection concerns about current commercial efforts to market and sell cloned and genetically modified pets, Assemblyman Levine stated, "Playing mad scientists behind closed doors, these companies couldn't care less about the suffering inflicted on animals or on pet lovers that are conned into thinking $50,000 will bring back their beloved companion.

He said veterinarians understand that, just because the DNA is identical, it doesn't mean the physical characteristics are going to be identical. "We're not going to put ourselves in a position where we're going to have to explain to somebody after they've spent $30,000 to $50,000 to clone their cat why it's not the same cat," he said. While animal-rights activists express fear that cloning will add to the pet overpopulation, Klingborg does not believe it'll have an impact. He believes very few owners will opt to duplicate their pets. Next month the CVMA, which has more than 5,000 members, will meet with Californians Against Pet Cloning.
AB 1428, the California bill to ban commercial pet cloning and genetic modification, was supported by a coalition known as Californians Against Pet Cloning (CAPC), whose members include: The American Anti-Vivisection Society United Animal Nations International Center for Technology Assessment.
