Posted - 06/07/2007 : 13:46:08 Here is an amazing story about the latest Blastocyst Stem cell bill, which will be sent to the President, but doesn’t have a veto proof majority. The most amazing things about this story are the following excerpts:
First is this statement:
“He also said a recent report by the U.S. Catholic Conference listed numerous breakthroughs involving research conducted on adult stem cells, cord blood and amniotic fluid, none of which involve the destruction of a human embryo.”
The Catholic Church is telling scientists how to do research. They presume to suggest the routes that should and should not be followed. This is a little reminiscent of society’s approach to astronomy in the time of Copernicus.
Second, this statement:
"You're talking about spare embryos now but if it ever did work ... it would require the killing of millions of embryos," said Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J.
Here it sounds as if they’re really afraid that Bastocyst Stem cell research will work! Imagine that. Perhaps this is the real reason that these groups appose it….
