George Bush's right-to-lifers are going nya, nya, nya we were right all along.
They're using a technique of using skin cells as a substitute for human-embryo cells for research as a boon for the their cause.
Boon to their cause it might be, but it's seven years too late for the sick who could have used any break-throughs in cures for catasprophic diseases, if there had been any.
It's not like researchers all over the world haven't been doing plenty of research on their own and/or with help from their own governments. But, if some of the might of the U.S. treasury had been thrown behind American researchers, we'd be seven years ahead of the game.
Thank you, George Bush on this day of Thanksgiving for your unChristian, wrong-headed, unconscionable, short-sighted, inhuman philosophies.
You haven't done one thing for the good of the average American people for whom you work. In this one specific case, refusing to allow government funding for embryonic stem cell research, you also haven't done anything to help the only people you care about...your very rich friends.
