    This is what happens when we do not value human life and become so selfish that we are willing to kill babies to cure our illnesses.

    Yep. And embryonic stem cell research has been a bust when it comes to cures and I expect that it will continue to be so. Clearly, adult stem cells and cord blood are the direction to go.

    Based on reaction to other moral issues, it won't be long before liberals decry this situation and state that as soon as stem cell research is legal, this situation will not occur.

    Abortion is the first example that comes to mind.

    I can see them trying that argument, but. It will not hold water because stem cell research is legal in the Ukraine. In fact it is legal here, only Gov. funds are not used for it.

    I would not really matter if it cured every known illness and let people live to be 300 years old.

    Killing babies is wrong. And useing murdered babies for our own benifit is twice as wrong.

    You are so right, and I knew that. My own wishful thinking let a Freudian slip right in!!

    Why is it that when I turn on evening news or pick up the paper I do not see this story. Fox's support for stem cells was on the news for days, Rush's comments on Fox were on the news for weeks. Yet nothing about this story in the evening news on cbs, nbc, abc or even fox.
