    Appeals court lifts ban on embryotic stem cell research funding.

    The Checkup - Appeals court lifts ban on stem cell funding


    An appeals court Thursday lifted a temporary injunction barring the federal government from funding research involving human embryonic stem cell research.
    Good, embryonic stem cells could very well be the biggest medical breakthrough of our time. We need to be researching the hell out of it, we could be talking about cures for blindness to cures for paralysis.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Re: Appeals court lifts ban on embryotic stem cell research funding.

    I Google search turned up no positive results of this research in the 7 EU Countries that permit it in 7 years, how ever adult stem cells have been shown to have good if limited results in some cases.

    As long as the stem cells used are going to be destroyed anyway i see nothing wrong with making use of them. Life hasn't really begun yet and it's not like they are going to be killing late term viable babies like some murderous Doctors do, for spurious reasons.

    Good. The potential for stem cells is very high, and we need to explore every avenue we can.

    Define "late term" and "spurious reasons," and who does this?

    The Nazi's justified their experiments the same way, high potential and we "must explore everything".
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Wow, Godwin in 4 replies! Well done, MrV. Extracting cells from an already-dead fetus is TOTALLY THE SAME THING.

    You know, MrVicchio sounds vaguely Italian. The Italians were part of the Axis powers in World War II. You know who else was part of the Axis powers? That's right, the Nazi's.

    Listen, if you're going to go Godwin, you need to hit it out of the park on the first try. You would've gotten better results with something like this:

    Even the Nazis didn't rip children out of wombs to perform experiments on them.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Excellent. Stem cells have great potential for future medical uses.

    Did I say something that was factually inaccurate?

    I was just pointing out how, if you were going to go with absurd, you could've done better.
