|It is an undeniable scientific fact that the pro-embryonic-stem-cell spot that Michael J. Fox did for Missouri Senate candidate Claire McCaskill was effective in the case of at least one person - Claire McCaskill - who has made medical history by winning a seat in the Senate because of it. Now it's time for the Democrats to return the favor and arrange a sweeping victory for the funding of embryonic stem cell research. It is especially important because now Fox has apparently decided that settling for Parkinson's alone is for wimps, and if he wants to be a truly progressive victim he also needs the brain tumor that embryonic stem cells create. Recall that Parkinson's patient in China, whose brain after being implanted with embryonic stem cells began to develop bone, skin, and hair - until an entire Siamese twin grew in his head, killing the host.|
HOW EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS
Stem cells from aborted fetuses were also once thought to be a promising avenue - until patients started to writhe and twist about, jerking their heads and flinging their arms, chewing constantly, flexing and distending their wrists, and moving their fingers up and down. One subject reacted so negatively that he now needed a feeding tube - and we know where that leads.
As one of the study's sponsors, Dr. Gerald Fischbach, put it: The surgery "is not the final solution that people would have hoped." There you have it in their own words: They're working toward a Final Solution with human experimentation.
SLATE writer Michael Kinsley, who also suffers from Parkinson's, likewise has been making a plea for embryonic stem cell research - despite the fact that adult stem cells consistently have exhibited far less disastrous, more promising results. But Kinsley wants his cells to come specifically from embryos that must be destroyed in the process. And specifically from government-funded destroyed embryos. Is it too much to ask? Sure enough, Kinsley and Fox could get their tumors through privately funded embryonic stem cell research (which, incidentally, has investors running for the hills), but it's that magic touch of government money that keeps their hope for a miracle alive.
With the growing popularity of "designer embryos" - screening for 200 diseases, as well as picking the sex and hair color - you can now design the embryos you destroy at taxpayer's expense. Which means you can grow a blond, blue-eyed tumor!
Perhaps the Democrats indeed might be our best hope for cures to debilitating diseases and paraplegia. After all, if they're able to raise the dead to vote again, they can certainly heal the paralyzed to walk again. Given the euphoria over the Democratic victory in places like Syria, Iran, and France, one can understand Democrats' obsession with stem cells. They're going to need as many as they can get to rebuild their spines.
So fear not: with the Democrats in control of Congress, the overgrown fetuses in schools will be experimenting on their embryonic brothers and sisters in lab class before we know it. And Michael J. Fox will never have to make another TV appearance without taking his embryo pill first.
