    Let's be clear about what's going on here.

    To harvest human embryonic stem cells, one must kill another person. Add to that sin the knowledge that NO embryonic stem cell research has yielded any positive results.

    Compare that with the promise of adult stem cell research.

    http://www.lifeissues.org/cloningstemcell/bradsarticle.html

    Despite the rhetoric about wanting to look to embryonic stem cells for a cure for blindness, the real issue is money. Life science research is big bucks, and the real race isn't about cures, it's about money. It's not about patients, it's about patents.

    Embryonic stem cell research is arbitrary human experimentation. There's no promise for a cure at all. It's blood money.

    The left celebrates murder. In the name of science.

    Happy day, eh ?


    I remember sumpthin' in scripture about evil being called good, and the people who stand for good will be called evil.
