“A set of blueprints is not a house; the DNA of a zygote is not a human being. There is no moral obligation to conserve DNA if there was, no man would be allowed to brush his teeth and gums, for in this brutal operation hundreds of sets of DNA are destroyed daily.”
Garrett Hardin, professor of biology at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Quoted in Redbook Magazine, May 1967. Also quoted on page 101 of Ruth Barnett.They Weep On My Doorstep. Beaverton, Oregon: Halo Publishers, 1969.
