Eminent scientists Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Sam Brownback of Kansas today denounced the bill currently before the U.S. Senate to allow for federal funding for stem cell research using new lines of stem cells.
Oh wait, those guys aren't medically trained, or scientists by profession? And the use of embryonic cells is a destruction of life?
So, these are the same two guys who support a military action in Iraq that takes HUMAN LIVES everyday? And the same two guys who likely wouldn't miss a chance to cut funding to some social program that likely keeps HUMANS alive and/or healthy?
It's a purely political move with these people. Must be nice to not give a shit about healing people with ALS or Parkinson's, while those of us who have to grapple with the suffering of a family member or friend who has one of these diseases.
My grandmother is suffering horribly from the effects of Parkinson's disease as we speak. And you're telling me she doesn't matter? We've got to save the cells that aren't even a fully formed human over her comfort and well-being in her final years?
Give me a break...
