But All the Other Kids Like It!

Mainstream American media applaud our government's approval to fund the destruction of embryos for stem cell research. According to a U.S. News & World Report article, headlines have been filled with glowing praise.

(Insert snarky tone of voice here)

Now, why should we not laud a juggernaut government's efforts? After all...."It's not only a matter of what's right in terms of research and cures for cancers and diabetes. It's also a matter of what's smart in strengthening the economy with new jobs in science and research and medicine," said Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington). more...

And as Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said yesterday, "To create jobs in an industry that's growing is an imperative." more...

So, let me get this straight. We are to kill embryos so those who have made it past abortifacient drugs and have escaped the murder of abortion that is increasingly protected by our government can get a paycheck.

Seriously, who's running this country? Has George Carlin come back from the dead? I apologize for the following offensive epithets, but I am reminded of his routine about getting out of an airplane in a disaster. "I’ll go around the fat guy, step on the widow’s head, push those children out of the way, knock down the paralyzed midget, and get out of the plane where I can help others."
