A proposed ban on human-animal hybrids died Friday when the House cut the heart out of a bill and ended debate early on the issue.

The vote was 63-52 against the proposal from Rep. Mary Pilcher Cook, R-Shawnee, to make it a felony to create or attempt to create a hybrid embryo or "non-human life form" with human brain tissue. A first offense would be punished by up to five years and one month in prison and a fine of $1 million.
