ESCR: Embryonic Stem-Cell Research

I'm highly disappointed that the Congress, specifically the House chose in their first '100 hours' to attack the unborn. They voted and passed HR3 on January 11th which voted in the funding of more embryonic stem-cell research...

Shortly after the House of Representatives voted January 11 for passage of HR 3 — the bill that requires the federal government to fund embryonic stem-cell research (ESCR) — a number of the bill's Congressional supporters gathered for a press conference wherein they promised that when this bill becomes law, the new research will soon lead to the cure of a host of terrible maladies. Among the maladies not mentioned by the legislators were stupidity and hypocrisy.

After considerable investigation into this subject, I am convinced that the push for government funding of embryonic stem-cell research has nothing to do with curing sick people. If it did, the people who are lobbying for that research would switch their efforts to adult stem cells, the real next great leap in medical technology.

"If man Chooses to treat himself as raw material, raw material he will be" (C.S. Lewis)
This would make a great bumper sticker..
