The argument of things we have many questions about ends with morals and ethics. People tend to convince themselves and others of them. There is a market for women to sell their eggs. That delves into morals and ethics. There are women who dance at strip clubs for college/education purposes. That delves into morals and ethics. I wrote this thread and criticized women on just two issues. That is not totally right in the scheme of our culture. Because men do things too. But this tells us how far our culture has declined. Money keeps us as civil as we are and we are not as civil as we were forty years ago. The relationship to the current issue is that somehow a person or persons will end up making profits someday as something is extracted from their bodies and men become more numb to life and death in a spiritual sense and uglier in a real sense.

Well, now that we've gotten rid of the guy who paid for his girlfriend's abortion and claims to be "pro life", the guy who bankrupted our country and stomped all over the Constitution along with stealing both elections while he lectured other countries about "democracy", we can now get back to doing what the US SHOULD be doing, which is leading the world in science and technology.
The neocons can scream, pout, squeal and lie all they want, because this time the American people were actually allowed to choose who they wanted - imagine that in a "democracy" - and they told him and his amoral thugs to go home and stay there.
Good riddance to the idiots.
Paid for his girlfriends abortion? That was proven a false libeal lie years ago. I'll say one thing for you, you never give up trying to convince the world of you liberal falsehoods.

Stole the election?? LOL, another lie. Not according the the Constitution and the US Supreme Court. Your opinion is moot!! Get a life.

Tell you what, dear. Why don't you go down to your local bank and take out a loan to support all the children you want to force into the world. That way, the rest of us won't have to bear an unwanted burden just because you say so.
I think that'd be putting your money where your mouth is, which of course you folks never do.
So killing the unborn is better that supporting them right? I support orphans, and a single mother that is my neighbor to help her daughter do good in school and show her what a father should be like. I will change her life to the better and make the mothers job easier. If churches would do their job and support orphans and widows like the Bible states we would not need a welfare program. But your side takes the easy way and just kills the unborn so you don't have to be inconvenienced.

Good, bush was an idiot to limit scientific research strictly on some rediculous mythological belief. It guess it was his right to play on his beliefs but it doesn't makes it a good idea.
Again, you are a liberal completley void of the truth.

Why don't you people try to look up the facts now and then instead of feeding off of, and adding to each others BS stories. Might help your rotten dispositions!

You can rely on your 'god' creature for a cure to disease, I'll stick to science.
Will you refuse any medical treatment based on this research, or will you be the typical religious hypocrit????
AS a matter of fact, yes, I would refuse it.
What will you say when you stand before God?...OOPS?
Tell ya what...I'll pray for you. And your demoncrats can't stop me.

The government has no right to use tax payer dollars to fund stem cell research.

Whining conservative crybabies need to shut up.

At least someone is trying to get fatal diseases cured instead of sitting around like a little pu$$y whining that it's God's will that they die.

Come to think of it, same goes for the bank bailout. Half a million Americans losing their jobs a month due to frozen credit, and conservatives just whine and poop their pants.

True progress was never made by wimps like this.

Don't stop there. Who enjoys supporting not only the unwanted children, but the parents as well. Why not use the parents for science=are they of any real use to us? They don't work and most people are very tired of supporting them. I would think all the people who use the financial card for the unwanted pregnancies would also support keeping their money concerning welfare people. Since they can't live on their own then use them for science to benefit those of us who choose to work paying our own way.

The frozen credits were caused by the peanut farmer and slick willie in their "give everybody credit" policies whether they can afford it or not. But since your so enlightend, you knew that already, didn't you?

I have to agree with Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council regarding the following topic which I cut and pasted from and MSN article today:

"Research has its critics:

Embryonic stem cells are master cells that can morph into any cell of the body. Scientists hope to harness them so they can create replacement tissues to treat a variety of diseases — such as new insulin-producing cells for diabetics, cells that could help those with Parkinson's disease or maybe even Alzheimer's, or new nerve connections to restore movement after spinal injury.

But they come with criticism.

"I believe it is unethical to use human life, even young embryonic life, to advance science," said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, a conservative organization that opposes the move."

Abortion is a tough and very sensitive issue and I am not one who can challenge this issue. I'm a firm believer when it comes to a human life from the time of conception to being born that each life is very unique and divine, therefore, mankind or any scientist has no right to interfere with a life's creation and President Obama will have to live with his conscience the rest of his life for allowing this type of research to resume after President Bush put a stop to it for so it wouldn't be on his conscience because it's a "Life" that is being taken without free will and I strongly feel it is wrong to take anyone's life against thier will, especially a life that can't even defend itselft from these mad scientist who will also have to live with this "unethical" act which will be on thier conscience as well. There's got to be other methods that doesn't mean taking another human life to this uncessesary madness, in my opinion.

Is it asking too much of people for them to be self sufficient or at least contributing to their own support if they are able to do so?
