    Hopefully that's one hot-button issue down.

    The embryos will still be destroyed. They were always going to be.
  3. I suspect we'll be having legislation now to close IVF clinics.
    No, wait, we won't.

    Glad to see the U.S. leading the world in research. Oh...wait...

    Some of the things scientists can accomplish still absolutely stagger me. What a great job by this team.

    Interesting discovery. Let's hope it leads to many miracles.

    Color me skeptical.

    I'm sure it's a wonderful discovery, but from what I understand, nothing beats the purity of embryonic stem cells. I hate to put it that bluntly.
  8. So far, Luggie, that's the case. Which is why the whole "pro-life activists endorse" this element makes me nervous. Who cares what some medievalist god-botherers think on a scientific issue? I want all the avenues explored all the time.

    bit harsh, fen? maybe? just a bit?

    Not at all, especially considering that the destruction of the embryos is imminent even if these morons get their way. The embryos will either be trashed or used for potentially valuable scientific research. The ban on embryonic stem cells just cuts out the research, not the destruction.

    You don't think "medievalist god-botherers" is a bit of hyperbole? Really?
