I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
You defined these matters as "problems," firstly. Secondly, you posited those seeking the cure as being completely benevolent in contradistinction to those that stand opposed. Lastly, you were being sarcastic and critical of those that do love their children for as they are.Seriously, there are plenty where just trying to fix the problem will be met with cries of "I love my special (fill in the blank)". You ought to have seen some of it yourself, being a dwarf, certainly if you go to any forums dealing in dwarf children, you get tons of parents who would smack you with a bat if you suggested wiping out dwarfism.
More sarcasm and criticism of those that do prefer their children as who they are (and also inclination of those who have a disability).However, what I was talking about was a lot of parents of dwarf children are so fascinated with the fact that their children are unique, they act like dwarfism is fantastic and they'd advocate it to anyone. I think a lot of it is the emotional attachment they have to their children and as such, they cannot imagine their children being any different than they are and thus, they convince themselves that dwarfism is preferable to non-dwarfism. It's really not a rational way of viewing the world.
Next, in response to me, you moved immediately to parents. First, what's wrong with them accepting/loving who their children are and upset when people say it ought not exist? Second, do you honestly think the criticism you had is limited to parents? You indicted those that prefer themselves as they are on two occasions.

There are very rigid limitations to how embryonic stem cells are obtained and used. Most of the embryonic stem cells have from "extra" embryos during in vitro fertilization. The extra embryos, which would otherwise be destroyed, are used for embryonic stem cell research.
I'm all for it.
