*Obama lifting ban on Stem Cell Research*

More proof that our President has an agenda to ban any iota of morality left in this country. This country is sick with sin, and many are still in their sin induced coma. Mr. Obama, may the Lord have mercy on you, and may you yet come to repentance. I shudder to think this man is leading us. I will say it again, he is NOT MY president. It becomes more difficult each day to celebrate being an american. Instead, I mourn for the greatness of this country that was.

I also mourn for the greatness of this country that was. I wouldn't have to if Bush wasn't a complete failure of a human being.

Yeah, the Lord is going to smite Obama for allowing embryos to be used for stem cell research instead of being flushed down the sink. [/sarcasm]

Yes, life saving medical research is immoral. How dare he give people with terminal illnesses hope!!!

I think I heard someone say that as long as religious orginazations don't pay taxes then they have no right to complain what tax money is being spent on.

Both sides really tend to come off ignorant on this issue.

First of all,both sides tend to think that stem cell research always means embryonic stem cell research.

Fundies ignore the fact that these cells come from zygotes and claim that the cells come from abortions.

Liberals tend to act as if there was a federal ban n all stem cell research. the ban was only on federal funding of embryonic stem cell strands that were not already being used prior to to the ban in 2001.

The fact is that ebryonic stem cells show little promise. Adult and umbilical stem cells show the most promise for medical use.

Ok, I think these kinds of people fail to understand what stem cell research entails.

Stem cell research uses frozen human embryos to harvest non-specialized cells, meaning they have the potential to become any other cell in a live human being.

Frozen human embryos.

Frozen.

THEY ARE DEAD. THEY CANNOT BECOME BABIES ANYMORE. THEY ARE BEYOND SAVING. THEY ARE ALREADY OUT OF THE WOMB. GET OVER IT.

RE: sha_lyn68

Oh, thank you for enlightening me on that!

....It still doesn't change the fact that embryos used for research don't have the potential for life.

I will say it again, he is NOT MY president.

Then renounce your citizenship. What's that? You don't want to? Net benefits to being an American citizen still overwhelmingly positive? Well, who'd have thunk it?

This country is sick with sin, and many are still in their sin induced coma.

Well, maybe we can find a cure for it with stem cell research. *cheeky grin*

I have been crippled by multiple sclerosis, one of the conditions that stem cells might help alleviate. Needless to say, I am soooooooo glad Obama is MY president.

Sorry, sweetie. He is your president whether you like it or not. For 8 years Bush was my president even though I did/do not care for him.

good, don't celebrate being a part of a country that wants to forget you exist.

really though, not a single one of these people know the first thing about stem cell research. ok that's pretty obvious, but I mean... if you ask them about evolution they at least know that it's about organisms changing into other species over time. they can at least give you that. but these people literally don't know even the FIRST thing about stem cells. they can't even tell what they are, why science is interested, what the research is trying to do, or even why they think it's evil.

Actually the cells were never is a womb to begin with. The cells come from embryos/zygotes. Usually ones leftover from fertility treamtments. They are not dead and most certainly can be "saved" and implanted in a womb.

I mourned that a long time ago, before Bush, before Obama, before Clinton. It should not be difficult to celebrate being American if you love this country no matter what.

"he is NOT MY president."

When people said that about Bush you guys called them traitors.

Hey, Asshole, what's with all this disrespect and lack of patriotism? Don't you know that We Are At WarTM?

Shut up and support your Wartime PresidentTM!!

Yes, people are sick. That's the purpose of stem cell research, to cure them.
