Embryonic stem cell research is intrinsically evil. It sacrifices the life of an innocent human being for the welfare (good intentions) of helping the living. Where is the public discussion about adult stem cells or umbilical cord stem cells, which have the greater potential for helping those living with physical problems?
Where are the trial lawyer television ads? You know, the ones who go after such drugs as Bextra, Vioxx, Zyprexa, to name a few. You’d think the trial lawyers would be anxious to handle cases of women who have suffered (and died) because they took the “morning after pill” or RU-486. Calling John Edwards!p>Democrats worship at the altar of abortion. Their religion has brought us abortion on demand at any age of the unborn child, embryonic stem cell research and utter disrespect for the dignity of women. br> — Clasina Segura br> New Iberia, Louisiana /p> p> George, you bore me. You are not a journalist, you spread hate. Why don’t you do something constructive, maybe something that makes the American “Pie” bigger. br> — Karl Rudolf br> Houston, Texas /p>
This article pretty much shows how low we have become in our understanding of science and personal responsibility. Technically no drug is ever “safe,” even aspirin. Some segment of the population will have an adverse reaction to any particular drug. Most of the population of this country can take penicillin. I on the other hand would have a reaction that sends me to the hospital. But I would not advocate that penicillin be removed from the market. The advantages are too great. I must take personal responsibility to not ingest that drug.
The ideology part I am afraid masks a much larger problem in health care. A large segment of the population that would not trust a car salesman to sell them a lemon, will blissfully hand over their body to treatments without one wit of concern to the risks involved. It is not a triumph of efficacy of the healthcare system but willful ignorance on the part of a large patient base to not ask questions. That kind of blind faith translates over into macro level decisions in the healthcare industry. A leading indicator of this was just how far Ms. Hillary’s Health Care Task Force got before people started blowing the whistle.p>An individual’s health is the most precious thing they can possess. That so many are willing to plead ignorance baffles me.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
