I say that’s great, just as long as they stipulate that once they find a viable treatment for Parkinson’s and spinal cord injuries by using embryonic stem cells, it may not be given to anyone from Georgia or Louisiana, unless they have a NARAL or ACLU membership card.
(That's "blog" for Michael J. Fox is greater than an embryonic stem cell.)
Some moron wrote into the paper this morning complaining about using his tax dollars for this stem cell research that hasn’t cured anything yet.
This is stupid on so many levels…
First of all, for every cure for every disease ever invented, all of them had a time when it hadn’t cured anything yet. That’s why they call it research, pinhead. You don’t just look under a floor mat at Princeton and go, “Oh, so there’s the cure…”
Secondly, there’s the idea that we get to choose what our tax dollars pay for. Sorry, it’s all or nothing with this country. You think I want to pay for agribusiness subsidies, the war in Iraq or abstinence programs? We live in a free country, which, of course, costs money.
How can you argue with that?
