There Should Be No "Debate" On Embyronic Stem Cell Research?
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 09:50 AM by JABBS
Yes, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Ann Coulter and the rest want to create a debate on the issue.

But if you want to try to argue with your conservative friends/foes, click here and copy the long list of medical associations, prominent researchers and yes, conservative politicians who understand the powerful tool that embryonic stem cells can provide in the fight against such diseases as Parkinson's, Juvenile Diabetes and Alzheimer's.

The link has a list of quotes, with attribution.

1. But, but . . . think of the CHILDREN!
Remember - we could be making little snowflake babies out of all these fertilized embryos! :sarcasm:

Yeah, sure. And maybe we could just raise them straight from a test tube into the military/industrial complex and create genetically engineered supersoldiers.

2. They don't want a debate on the issue
as much as they want M.J. Fox and Nancy Reagan(!) to shut up and go away.

This issue, far from being a puglickn booster, has helped drop Jim Talent in the Missouri senate race, where Prop 2 is like kryptonite to the puggie base.

4. whatever it takes
the mjf ad is very powerful.

i just hope that people realize that the goal of the radio ranters is to make an american majority -- in this case, roughly 75% of all Americans, including about 66% of Republicans -- feel like the fringe left.

The list of medical associations in the link is more than enough ammunition for liberals who need to advocate against the fiction making the rounds among fringe conservatives. the fact that john danforth, orrin hatch, bill frist, nancy reagan and other conservatives have something positive to say is gravy.

3. I don't understand ---
it is free enterprise when gun manufactures sell semi automatic guns that kill children but it is a moral issue when a few cells that possibly could be a child are used to keep people alive and productive members of society.
