(NOTE FOR THE LIBERALLY OBTUSE: In this little rant, when I speak against stem-cell research, I am referring exclusively to embryonic stem cell research. Anything that doesn’t involve the death of an embryo/fetus/choose-your-own-codeword-for-a-HUMAN-LIFE is of course perfectly acceptable and NOT the subject of this rant.)
Cancel the previous wisdom. McCaskill is still behaviorally evil, but Micheal J Fox is fully aware of what he is doing, and he is prostituting himself in a effort to revive embryonic stem-cell research. (And unlike some political candidates, I’ll come right out and say that following this line of research is EXACTLY as bad as the experiments in Nazi Germany, and if they proceed, we are morally no better than they were.)
Fox is video stumping for Democrat Ben Cardin, from the same hotel room he shot the McCaskill video, and he plans to stump for Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Congresional candidate Tammy Duckworth of Illinois. (LINK)
I’ll say it again: Fox’s illness is unfortunate and sad. That he has allowed it to overcome his common sense and decency, to advocate for the grinding up of human flesh into hamburger in hopes of a miracle cure is a monstrous tragedy. For the American electorate to buy into this emotional demagoguery is dangerously stupid.
UPDATE: Anchoress has a newer, even more relevant post up on this sad debacle.
