    Well, to be precise, what is banned with regard to fetal stem cells is federal funding, but the impact is the same (Singapore is outpacing us in this field, consequently). As a librarian I don't support federal funding of research, but my view on this is similar to gay marriage. Govt has no business recognizing marriages either, but as long as thy are they should no let superstition/religion influence the way they go about it. It's a sad situation that govt funding has distorted to free market for research, but that's just the way it is; research depends on federal funding.

    Look, we all know what the political climate is like, with the "culture wars" and all that. It is clear that once scientists are gettin close to growing replacement human organs and other therapeutic cloning procedures, the right wing WILL ban it. We have a Cour that is tipping conservative now, and would no doubt uphold such a ban (although Roberts has shown himself to be a good jurist, I am not comfortable withy the balance of the Court these days). And Scalia and Thomas are older than dirt, same with Ginsberg. Hopefully Obama in his next term will get a chance to replace all three (I wish only for heir voluntary retirement, of course).

    I shudder to think what havoc a SCOTUS packed wih young right wingers will wreak on medical science over the next generation, as incalculably importan scienctific advancements like cloning butt up against dark age American religious sensibilities.
    My positions is that the supreme courts, including constitutional courts, should be appointed through popular vote by the people with a temporal tenure (so not for life... 1-4 years, you pick). The way it currently is, there is no doubt that you will have people appointed to the supreme court because of their political affiliations (Elena Kagan comes to mind).

    Yeah, pretty much this. It's probably my main contention with liberals, of whom I tend to be considered one.

    Don't get me wrong, I love technology. But ethics conversations are important to have, and too often, you see stuff like a straight line of Congresspeople with (D) next to their name voting for stuff like SOPA. It's intended to address a problem technologically, so it must be good! It's like they skip the part of evaluating whether it will actually work, or whether it's ethical to do it.

    I say liberal judges, conservatives are traditionally against stem cell research

    This is only because the Roman Catholic Church has made the preposterous argument that most stem cells are harvested from the products of abortion and therefore, women are getting abortions they otherwise would not in the interests of science. Not every "conservative" Justice buys this silliness, and I think it's unfair to suggest that conservatives, generally, are anti-science.
