BREAKING NEWS: NO PATENTS ON GENES

US Supreme Court unanimously rules Human Genes cannot be patented! This is a huge story with far-reaching impact.   Imagine a company having property rights to manufactured genetic tissue or organs that have been transplanted into your body!  I would like to see a similar ruling hit Monsanto and Cargill: Look at GMO corn and wheat crops and the struggles and damage farmers are facing all over the world…  Search “Indian Farmer Suicide”

The American Civil Liberties Union praised the high court ruling as a victory. “Today, the court struck down a major barrier to patient care and medical innovation,” said Sandra Park of the ACLU, which represented the groups that brought the challenge. “Because of this ruling, patients will have greater access to genetic testing, and scientists can engage in research on these genes without fear of being sued.”
