Genetic Defilement: NEW LAW REQUIRES “NOT FOR HUMANS” LABEL ADDED TO DIY CRISPR KITS. CALIFORNIA DOESN’T WANT ANY MORE SELF-EDITORS ON ITS HANDS.

‘As in the days of Noah.’ Genetic corruption and defilement of flesh.

Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Genesis 6:9, 11, 12 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Genesis 7:1-4  And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

Genetic Defilement: NEW LAW REQUIRES “NOT FOR HUMANS” LABEL ADDED TO DIY CRISPR KITS. CALIFORNIA DOESN’T WANT ANY MORE SELF-EDITORS ON ITS HANDS.

In 2017, biohacker Josiah Zayner famously injected himself with CRISPR gene-editing tech, a move he later admitted to regretting.

Now, to prevent any of Zayner’s fellow Californians from following in his footsteps, Governor Gavin Newsom recently signed a bill state senator Ling Ling Chang is calling the first U.S. law to directly regulate CRISPR tech.

Chang authored the legislation, which will go into effect in January, and it prohibits companies from selling at-home CRISPR kits unless the kits explicitly warn buyers not to use the tech on themselves.

But no kits for editing human DNA currently exist. That’s prompted Zayner — who is already under investigation in California for practicing medicine without a license, an investigation he claimed is directly linked to his “genetic self-experimentation” — to decry the passage of the CRISPR law as a personal attack.

“It’s obviously targeting me,” he told MIT Technology Review. And that belief isn’t entirely unfounded.

When asked to provide examples of products the new bill would affect, Chang provided a link to a gene-editing kit Zayner’s company The Odin sells. But that kit is designed to facilitate edits in bacteria and not humans.

“It’s like saying a skateboard needs to have a sticker to say it can’t be used on the freeway,” Zayner told MIT Tech Review. “It doesn’t make any sense.”

Additionally, federal law already prohibits anyone in the U.S. from selling do-it-yourself gene-therapy products, so if Zayner was selling such kits, they’d already be illegal, with or without a warning label.

Still, just because the kits sold by Zayner aren’t designed for human gene editing wouldn’t preclude people from attempting to use them that way — and that’s the future Chang hopes to avoid with the new CRISPR law.

“The technology is moving faster than regulations, so it’s important to be proactive about preventing safety mishaps by amateur users of CRISPR kits,” she said in a statement following the bill’s passage. “While I’m a huge proponent of supporting scientific curiosity and imagination, I’m very concerned about the amateur use of this technology and its impact on consumer and public safety.”
