    and someone offered you a cure that was made from stem cells that allow you to lead a normal life...would you take it ? Yes or no answers will do.

    Sure - I'd rely upon the private-party research and state gov't funding to help find a cure, I wouldn't expect the Feds to pay for stuff which may or may not work. Not in this case.

    There needs to be some clarification. Also there are too many variables that would influence my answer. Is private industry giving me this chance, or is it based on taxpayer money? What are stem cells? Are these cells like fetuses that have the potential to grow into human beings? If so, I would decline. If these cells were “dead” in the sense that they can’t become unique human beings, and if there were no taxpayer money directly involved, then I would likely say, “Yes, let’s put them to use to possible extend life, including my own."

    Your answer is ridiculous..its a yes or no question...simple as that...No long winded answers.. Your dying, your suffering...someone comes along with a cure, offers it to you...will you take it ? Dont tell me your going to ask yourself whose taxpayer dollars were spent on it. Thats aload of crap to try and justify your position... Its a yes or no question. Answer it.

    Parkinson’s is not like a car wreck. It is a disease that progresses slowly. Depending on what is available and how it is available, I would have time to make an informed decision.

    In answering your hypothetical question, given no additional information about these cells, I would say, “no”.

    You want information about the cells used in the cure before you take it ? Really ? The hypothetical question was based on that you are SUFFERING from parkinsans. You said you would turn that cure down and choose to die. You sir are a liar. But I dont expect you to contradict your position on previous threads. Cause then you would be known as a hypocrit. Understandable.

    LOL. That is a nice piece of erroneous and irrelevant name-calling. Now, prove that I am a liar or hypocrite. :rotflmao:
