According to smith, “Clair Bleakley who is the president of GE free New Zealand, has reported that the 60 cloned cows that they have made, have been suffering inordinately from chronic illness, unexplained deaths and sever deformities as a result of the foreign DNA inserted in the embryos. Only 14 of the 60 cows are alive. Cloning should be stopped because soon cloning humans will become real and making them post-human” Smith, Wesley.
