State senator Alex Deccio, a Republican from Yakima, Washington, likening frozen clusters of cells to Holocaust victims, said: "Public policy said those people should be destroyed.

In a satirical letter, Jesus' General wrote: "It's all part of their strategy to prevent us from granting civil rights protections to Blastocyst-Americans. They want to keep our smallest citizens in a ghetto of unpersonhood as if they were merely homosexuals." (Eyeteeth & Jesus' General)
