according to our president, Pharmacutc....ummm....I mean JESUS doesn't want to cure people of disease by using stem cells...Its abortion!
On the real, imagine if the leading medical minds iin teh US were allowed to research such things?
Bush is against embryonic stem cells being used for research. These weren't embryonic stem cell, they were adult bone marrow stem cells, you get a F in politics and biology.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
- Do other countries fund embryonic stem cell research?
- Do they sometimes get information that leads to cures?
- If so, why don't we?
In fact, if they were using adult stem cells in the German case we're discussing, isn't it possible that they got early data pointing them to this use, from use of embryonic stem cells, which have the advantage of relative plasticity (i.e., ready adaptability into any type of cell for research purposes?)
One has to imagine that the scientific research community, far from being a cabal of baby-eaters, actually wants to research cures for diseases.
So: are we forgoing cures because we won't fund embryonic stem cell research?
Oh and by the way, your funding distinction is absurd. Government grants are a huge part of scientific research. The amount a breakthrough costs sort of makes research a natural for government expenditure, as can be seen in the amount spent by governments worldwide in all fields of scientific endeavor.
