Obama OKs embryonic stem cell research; actions are immoral and ineffective
March 10, 2009
President Obama has given the ok to destroy human life in the name of scientific research.
No. Obama has brought science back to its rightful place instead of banning things because of personal reasons (Bush's ban was reversed) Do me a favor Don, next time you are sick, skip the hospital and go to a church instead.
Embryonic stem cell research is immoral and ineffective. It is immoral because it destroys human life at its earliest stage of development by harvesting the stem cells for body parts.
Don, Don, Don. They use stem cells that were going to be tossed in the trash to begin with. We aren't talking about babies or even embryos here, we are talking about blastocysts! Secondly, they aren't being used for "Body Parts" I am sure glad you don't have a family member that suffers from a disease or spinal injury who could benefit from this research that has been hindered by someone else's "moral" beliefs. I would like you to take a trip down to St. Jude's Hospital and look a suffering child in the eye and tell her that she can't get a cure cause of your personal belief. You hypocritical coward!
It is ineffective because it has yet to be used a single time in any therapeutic application.
This is dumb. It hasn't been used cause we are still in the RESEARCH PHASE you ignoramus. There is a reason we are still in the research phase. His name is George W. Bush. With help from you lot. Who knows what an additional 8 years of progress on this front would have brought us to today?
Researchers must get their funding from taxpayers for embryonic stem cell research because they can't convince private sources to invest. Private investors know there are no proven uses for embryonic stem cells. It's all hype, hope and theory.
Bullshit. Who the F do you think is doing the research? The government?
But adult stem cell research, on the other hand, is ethically benign and is already being used to treat over 70 diseases and conditions. If taxpayer dollars are going to be spent on stem cell research, that's where it ought to go.
Don't lets get started on this. You think a blastocyst should be spared but seem to think its ok for people to be executed by the state in commission of a crime.
By reversing funding restrictions on embryonic stem cell research, Pres. Obama is making every American taxpayer complicit in immoral, life destroying research. This is a terrible example of political ideology trumping sound science.
The "sound science" has been trumped by 8 years of Bush "dark-ages" policy.
