  1. 8 Years of having a drunken driver at the wheel put America in the ditch, why would working Americans return the keys to the crowd drinking at the same bar?

    Use discarded embryos for research?

    No, better to incinerate them, right neo-cons?

    D for forward, and R for backward, indeed.

    Well as the Right likes to say. Can't let an activist judge help murder people. These cells are being thrown out anyway. Why not put them to good use??

    When one of their kids gets a broken neck, or something horrible in an accident, that leaves them paralyzed, they'll be praying for stem cell research to hurry.

    Hypocrits.

    This research is WAY too important to give up on now. We have millions of people who are need this. We have come too far to give up now.

    I say we withhold key medical breakthroughs that were achieved via stem cell research from those who oppose it. Makes perfect sense. But don't stop medical advances because of the neocons.

    at least they are consistent. Drop the charges on King Shabazz and fight to kill embryos

    I hope that they succeed to allow research. It is like going back to the Dark Ages all brought on by the religious nuts in this world. Mostly Christians which I no longer want to be associated with!

    Stem cell research should continue so we may find cures for many of the horrible diseases that many American's suffer with for far too long. Rediculous ammendments should be found to be unconstitutional when human health is concerned.
