You know, when Native Americans aborted children, they used every part of the fetus.

Her parents were concerned with security, but mistakenly checked the "do not trachea" box instead of the "do not track" box.

Sure it was her own stem cells, I bet they just tell her that because it's better than saying a beautiful innocent child had to die so you could talk better. Thanks Obama.

I'm sorry to derail the thread, but I'm just too confused to not ask and feel like an idiot...

Does somebody want to explain to me what is so @#$%ed up about the United States that LIBERALsimply means "I believe in taking the same freedoms away from people, but for different reasons?"

When did it become a swear-word in the states?

As a Canadian, I just know that when liberals are in charge, the country progresses and makes great strides, and when the conservatives are let in charge, it's essentially because rich old white people are pissed off, and the country goes broke and tries to destroy everything we've attempted to build up in this country. I just figured it was the same down there...what's up with nobody in America actually wanting to make PROGRESS? It's always about screwing the other side out of what they value most.

Basically, Woodrow Wilson and FDR each had a couple of classical-liberal stances mixed with a lot of socialist and some nationalist policies.  They both labeled themselves "liberal", despite not having much at all in common with classical liberals, and so in the United States, the term came to be attached to a political package that's generally somewhat looser on personal habits than conservatives but that includes heavy government management of the economy and centralized social engineering.

That's not the point.  Everyone knows if you use stem cells, it makes you support gun control, which is a sin against Jesus.

It's a lot of projection done by the Authoritarians and Fundamentalists that call themselves Conservatives.

I don't get the underlying implications of that sentence, I don't know if they're positive or negative, but I will cop to saying yes to all three...but whether or not I was rich or poor, I wasn't getting same-sex marriage or health care from the conservatives....both of which are highly relevant to my life. I will admit that I really can't see it from the point of view of a homeowner with more than $100 000 in income...but how bad could their lives possibly be that liberal policy will completely destroy it?

I'd rather ask a stupid question than pretend I know everything. So do you care to enlighten me? ...or do you not have an answer?

Stem cell research supporters also voted for abortion rights and gay marriage.

I believe that anything involving stem cells is the work of evil, human sacrificing satanists. All those involved need to be burned... 'cause jesus.

I might be an unfrozen caveman, but there's a difference between fetal stem cell research supporters & the abortion rights crowd... it's not necessarily one and the same.

BUT

I don't know. I mean, I hear "stem cells", and I think, "Christopher Reeve cracking a baby's head off, and sucking down the juice." W000! guns! god! wooo!

I feel the article is incomplete as they leave out what kind of stem cells they used. young children have a lot of extra stem-cells that can be utilized for operations like this. Basal skin cells can be manipulated to turn into almost perfect stem cells. The stomach lining also has harvestable stem cells that can be used like this, although this is more difficult and can cause some complications in mature individuals.

Wait it was my understanding that George Bush killed stem cell research.
