Democrats support using human life as spare parts.

embryo.jpg      Federal funding of embryonic stem-cell research is the wedge issue for the Democrats this year. Gabby Giffords is running an ad in the AZ CD-8 race. The issue is being used in the U.S. Senate race in Missouri. Claire McCaskill is has an ad featuring Michael J. Fox. Fox has been busy this year and also shows up in an ad in the Maryland Senate race. Nowhere in any of these ads do they use the words embryonic. Are they trying to hide something, say the truth? 

     Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are tragic diseases but politicizing them is not the solution. Paying to harvesting one life for another should not be the responsibility of the federal government. I wonder if embryonic stem-cell research (Frankenscience) is so promising why do we not let private companies do the research. Surly there must be an incentive for them if this technique will cure all these diseases. For sure if there was any potential the ethically unencumbered French would be all over this “cure.” 

     The truth is that embryonic stem-cell research has not shown much promise and the Democrats are using it as a political issue. They want to find some “good use” for all the aborted babies that keep pilling up each year. I wonder what the Democrats would say if a Republican ran an ad with a baby writhing in pain during a partial-birth abortion. They would probably accuse the Republican’s of using that as a wedge issue and demand to get back to “real issues.”

An astute reader pointed out that Loren Udall, in a DCCC ad, is now blaming J.D. Hayworth for her Lupus.

BTW  Looks like Len Munsil might actually want to win the Governor’s race. Many of us were waiting for him to put away the feather duster that he used in the debates. Looks like he finally did.

  1. Great post !!!

    I have always asked the question…

    Where is Amgen and Genetech on this reserch???

    And how about that Japan has been studying stem cells for years and years yet “Mr. Suzuki” has yet to get up out of his wheelchair!!!

    In sum, the GOP SHOULD start running partial birth murder ads in ALL senate races against the dems to really scare the voting public!!!

  2. also, some poor woman is blaming JD Hayworth for her Lupus disease. Its all over the TV.

    The GOP needs to throw the partial birth issue back at Mitchell!!!

  3. Eph = Astute reader !!!!

  4. redcardphreek says

    Any conservatives want to put their principles on the line and promise not to use any treatment that was derived from embryonic stem cells?

    I think not.

    And why is Eph congratulating Eph?

  5. Because Eph is very lonely…

  6. redcardphreek says

    There are many online dating services you could try.

  7. Michael Fox also did ads for more sensible Republicans like Arlen Specter.

    By the way Loren Udall has Lupus not Lupis, and she didn’t blame anybody for the illness, so follow your own advice and don’t distort the message.

    Did you know that in the normal course of Sexual intercourse, thousands of blastocysts are flushed from the uterus. Maybe you can get some volunteers to rescue these poor souls.

    When are you going to start the campaign to shut down fertility clinics which produce the celebrated embryos/blastocysts? Will you be calling for the arrest of the couples that use these services and the doctors that run them?

    Why don’t you run ads for “Snowflake” adoptions to rescue these unclaimed cells?

    What happens when they no longer become viable? Do we hold funerals for them?

    Nothing Fox said was inaccurate, so stop lying about it.

    Tim,

    I have to claim ignorance on the blastocysts so I looked it up. According to the International Society for Stem Cell Research the blastocyst is:

    A very early embryo consisting of approximately 150 cells. The blastocyst is a spherical cell mass produced by cleavage of the zygote (fertilized egg). It contains a fluid-filled cavity, a cluster of cells called the inner cell mass (from which embryonic stem cells are derived) and an outer layer of cells called the trophoblast (that forms the placenta).

    An embryo is a fertilized egg so I don’t know with whom or what you are having intercourse but I fail to see how the act could flush thousands of embryos from the uterus.

    Thanks for the spelling correction.

  9. Whether there are clinics where it is possible to receive free-of-charge health services, whether there are programs on transplantation of bodies for poor? WBR LeoP

  1. […]      The Democrat wedge issue this year is stem cell research. As discussed before Michael J. Fox is doing ads all over the country in a coordinated distortion of the position of many Republican candidates. […]
