Weird thoughts...

...I was reading Dex's entry on the cloning laws, and I noticed the "no person or entity" line... and you know what? They've *all* got that line in 'em. Now I understand "person"... but exactly what do they mean by "entity"? What could be defined by "entity" that could not be defined by "person", at least in terms of "entities" capable of carrying out cloning experiments? *worried look*
...maybe it's just things like companies and governmnents... yeah... *still looking vaguely worried*

It's possible...
....although I could be wrong, since I'm hardly an expert on the subject....

it's possible that the "entity" portion of "person or entity".... wow, I'm pretty tired, I missed your second paragraph. *G* The U.S. has laws that essentially grant what some folk call 'corperate personhood.' I know I read that phrase recently. Point being, what the "entity" bit might refer to is a company's or a university's research program. And this would effectively bar state govenements from funding such research (IE at a public institution or university) as well.

I think. Like I said, I'm just guessing and I'm really tired right now. *G*
