Despite the fact that the use of adult stem cells in humans is already treating human disease without those health concerns . . .
Despite the fact that harvesting embryonic stem cells requires the death and destruction of a live, growing, human fetus . . .
And despite the fact that scientists are concerned the company proposing the trial hasn't done the requisite animal testing . . .
Barack Obama's Food and Drug Administration has approved an application for a clinical trial injecting cells derived from aborted children into other human beings. (Link to story here .)
Why the rush?
Abortion advocates, like Obama and most (if not all) Democrats, are on the wrong side of the moral debate. And they know it.
They're desperately seeking to plant the "necessity" of killing babies to cure disease into the American psyche. They're rushing embryonic stem cell research because they can't afford to have ethically-derived, adult stem cells curing all the diseases reserved as "moral" justification for aborting children.
This is making me sick.
