How else could it be explained how some here know exactly how the founding fathers thought about every current event. I`m sure they must have covered & discussed str & the tapes must have somehow been ereased. I say it`s about time research is funded & tried. If you never try we would still be riding horses & defending ourselves with muskets.
As for moral & ethical questions, the heck with them if it doesn`t turn out as some here would like ( even with a supreme court ruling ) you would ignore it .

I agree!!...RESEARCH.....why the hell would we want to actually LEARN anything of value, when we could just keep stumbling our way through the years?!? (& it's a damned good thing we were able to figure out how to build the A-bombs (that ended WWII & saved thousands of our GI's) by reading the instructions on Cracker-Jacks box tops!....No reearch money wasted there!)
When will we learn: Science & Understanding are our enemies!!

But on the other side I don't think the federal government should have had any say at all in stem cell research, for or against. See how that works when there is a priciple behind my ravings? Then again we would not be having this converstaion!

Hell the damned eggs don't pay taxes or create jobs, and I do both. I just want to walk again and be even more productive than I already am!! So yeah, I do have hope again. I would love to be able to limp around, forget about normal walking!!
