Along with my statement earlier on this subject, read this, by The Dawn Treader:
Most of my frustration with the stem-cell discussion in this country is the indifference and apathy toward stem cell therapy that is already at work delivering cures today.
That is right. I am not talking about research. I am talking about cures. From stem cells. Today. Already.
Why do we not hear about these cures?
Answer: human embryos were not destroyed to produce the cures. Adult stem cells were used. Inexplicably, this invalidates hope in the minds of some.
Instead, they would rather hurl invectives at Laura Bush and her husband for stealing their hope.
Ultimately, this is not about medical treatments for disease. This is about whether any moral or ethical restraint on “science” will be allowed.
