GOP Mutating Over Stem Cells
The issue has divided Republicans, pitting former first lady Nancy Reagan against President Bush and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., against religious conservatives.
Reagan and others argue that the research offers scientific promise that could cure diseases such as Alzheimer's that her late husband, former President Reagan, suffered from for years. Anti-abortion conservatives contend that the research destroys days-old fertilized embryos and amounts to the taking of human life.
Frist angered conservatives last year when he reversed course to support expanded government-funded research on embryonic stem cells. In August 2001, Bush imposed restrictions on public funding for newly developed embryonic stem cell lines.
The sooner these power mad, cash crazed, vote stealing people haters get their little 'cosa nostra' broken up, the better for the rest of us. May God grant that they all someday need the very medical technology that they are trying to destroy.
