    The veto of Federal funds for embryonic stem cell research has not prevented continuing American efforts in the field:

    Now imagine how much good could be done if the rabid religious right would stop getting in the way of science.

    That's about it. Imagine. Because THAT's all you got. It amazes me you can comtinue to slur this mythical rabid religious right when all you in fact want to do in superimpose YOUR morals, or in this case lack thereof, on others.

    You remind me of quote from the original Frankenstein movie in 1931 "....first to destroy life, then recreate it." That's all you're about. Playing God. Deeming which human life is worthy of existence and which is not.

    Imagine how many lives would be saved if not for those of you that attempt to dehumanize it by scientific definition in order to kill it for ceonvenience.

    Bloody hell Gunny - no-one's advocating a Mengele approach to scientific inquiry.

    Because, of course, curing parkinsons, alzheimers and paralysis is the same thing as being insane.

    And kiss my butt, You think only the psychos are moral? There are moral limits to research. Not doing any isn't it. And extremist religious viewpoints shouldn't be legistlated into government OR imposed on science.

    Yes yes, we should continue to butcher unborn children because the mother does not want the inconvenience of carrying the child and label it "choice" We should create a market for those aborted children as well. Right wing religious zealots my ass.

    I disagree with the characterization, but wouldn't that be "choice?" What would you label it?


    I thought markets work to perfection. Don't they breed efficiency and social advancement? You are nothing but a dirty socialist.
