You favorite war hero senator Ping!
He's irrelevant and all the rhetorical cowpies he can muster ain't gonna change that fact.
So why doesn't someone do Stem Cell reseach?
Just keep the ban on cash from the government.
No matches found for "embryonic."
Gee...you don't suppose he's trying to confuse people on this issue, do you?
NO ONE is against "stem cell" research, Monsieur.
What we oppose is embroynic stem cell research, also known as clone & kill. It is immoral to create a human life in order to kill it for any reason.
The POS traitor Kerry lies again; trying to position himself in 2008. What a scumbag!
No, just innately wrong. Soilent Green comes to mind.
Jean Kerry strikes again.
"So why doesn't someone do Stem Cell reseach?

The stem-cell controversy is much staged by drug companies and the like who want govt. funding.
Stem-cell research is pro-life

Uphold the US Constituion!
Too bad the "Move On" FReepers just don't understand
the real threat that the likes of Hanoi Kerry pose to our country.
I just don't understand their reasoning in saying
"drop it", "your wasting your time", "give it up" etc.
Some even howl when I remind them the job is NOT done.

So why do they think I'll stop now?
Don't be like the Silent Majority in the 60's and 70's
Demand Kerry be ousted from the US Senate!
There is no need to impeach Hanoi Kerry from the US Senate
He is there illegally!
For those who "forgot" what Hanoi Kerry
did in the past read on and learn the truth.
Hanoi Kerry was still a USNR officer while he:
gave false hearsay testimony to Congress
negotiated with the enemy
helped the US lose a war
abetted in the deaths of millions
created a hostile environment for all servicemen
Why is Kerry still in the US Senate?
This is in violation of
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3
And the FBI has proof of his treason.

Kerry and Julia traveled to Paris, France and met with Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, the Foreign Minister of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of Vietnam (PRG), the political wing of the Vietcong, and other Viet Cong and Communist Vietnamese representatives to the Paris peace talks, a trip he now calls a "fact-finding" mission.
(U.S. code 18 U.S.C. 953, declares it illegal for a U.S. citizen to go abroad and negotiate with a foreign power.)

Hey that control F is pretty cool. Thanks!
And I pointed that out too! Embryonic stem cell research isn't just unethical, it's a waste of money. It hasn't brought about anything but the needless destruction of human life. All this so called "research" is being done solely in college and university laboratories. Animal-Human Hybrids and embryonic cells grown in a culture of uterine cells.
No, Stem cell research works. Embryonic stem cell research doesn't. There is a clear difference. Kerry is trying to confuse people like you by clumping it together in one neat little group.
Jeepers, creepers he lies from the GIT GO:
For everyone, the issue of stem-cell research is deeply personal and fundamentally moral.
Everyone, johnnyboy, everyone?
By da way, howsa you likin da swifta boat veterans now? Any better? Didn't think so.
What did you do, just search for the word without reading the article? I wish I'd thought of that. Now I feel ill.
Killing one group for the express purpose of possibly finding among their pitiful remains, a miracle cure for another group, is so ghoulish that no good that came, however astounding it may be, would ever erase the fact that the whole procedure is a beastly atrosity.
Glad you caught that---I looked very specifically for the word "embryonic"---nope, none---
Therefore the whole article is bogus because Bush has put no restricitons on stem cell research and is the FIRST president to fund it---
Kerry is a LIAR, LIAR, LIAR,---and just keeps on doing it!!!
We spend $6 billion a year on tax money trying to cure AIDS --a disease that is 100% preventable (excluding blood transfusion recipients and babies born to infected mothers). Most diseases are lucky to get $100 million a year in taxpayer funding for research.
Stem cell research has the potential to cure many horrible ailments. It is a far worthier investment than the billions spent trying to cure AIDS.
My granddaughter 5, has juvenile diabetes---I would love to find a cure for it so she doesn't have to take insulin all of her life--(her uncle dies of diabetes when he was 23)-- and I would take a bullet to save her life, BUT
there is no way that we should make killing babies a way to help the already alive but ill---
Kerry. Shut up.
The current administration is opposed to embryonic stem cell research, i.e the harvesting of stem cells from aborted fetuses or from lab grown embryos. These are the moral issues concerning stem cells, man's ability and willingness to play God. To either sacrifice a life or genetically engineer a life for the sole purpose of using it as a resource instead of as a gift.
How can Captian Longface support using human life as a resource yet oppose drilling into the dirt to locate a resource? That's why you lost, mor... Mr. Kerry and that's why your party continues to lose elections. You have lost your moral core and are out of touch with the rest of America.
Oh, yeah, and it's not pro life, embryonic stem cell research merely exchanges one life for another. Theoretically.
Placental cells work much better. But m. sKerry would't like that one bit.
This senator is like the Communists -- words mean whatever he wants them to mean -- there is no objective reality. According to him, supporting abortion is pro-life. This guy needs to get a clue.
Translation: "I'm John Kerry, and I believe that chopping up babies is pro-life. This announcement paid for by NOW and NARAL."
This is the same drivel they use to spew out about 10 years ago when they insisted that taking the tissue from aborted fetus' would cure all the worlds ailments...
Hmmmmm...still waiting for those cures!!
I think he's dreaming if he believes he has any shot in 2008.
Re: Juvenile Diabetes and Stem Cell Research:
You should know that a Harvard scientist has developed a treatment for juvenile diabetes using stem cells from the pancreas, I believe. She has tested her treatment on mice and not only has the treatment stopped the diabetes, the stem cells have regenerated on their own. Fabulous news! So she has gotten some funding from the Iaccoca Foundation, but when she went to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation for help, they turned her down flat. Guess why? Because they're focusing solely on embryonic stem cells. So, an organization suuposedly dedicated to eliminating juvenile diabetes would rather hang its hat on embryonic stem cell research, which if it even went through would be 10 years down the road, instead of funding treatment testing that could be implemented next year.
On behalf of your granddaughter, I would contact the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and ask them why they won't help her.
Oh, my gosh, thanks---I did not know that and that is way too bad because when my Mom died, she had written in her will that in lieu of flowers, she wanted donations to the Juvenile Diabetes Assoc....hmmm
Well, I guess that gives me the right to ask them what those funds are for and tell them that I am against embryonic stem cell research---like the care, but at least I will ask them about the other study of pancreatic stem cells..
Thanks again for the information!
I refer you to post 14. A wise person wrote it.
Yes, but all of the promising stem cell research projects use either adult stem cells or ones from umbilical cords. We're so tied up in the "politically correct " push for embryonic stem cells that we can't focus on where the successful experiments really are.
There have been successes with umbilical cord cells and adult cells from bone marrow, fat, and nose cells. Not from embryos.
If I had to choose, I'd say let's invest most of our money in stem cells from adult fat tissue. We have a never ending supply of that. A lot of people would be willing donors, for sure.
A vampire drains his victim of blood in order to live. I guess that's "pro-life."
Thanks for the ping!
Easily-----he's a DEMOCRAT (widely known outside the borders of the US as SOCIALISTS). Illogical, illegal, and immoral notions are what they do.
When is he going to sign Form 180? Didn't he promise he was going to do that?
They just don't get it. You don't kill unborn children to use to keep your loved one alive - sorry!
No wonder the democrats are in such trouble with moral values - they don't even know what moral values are.

It's not too late for 13-year- old Garrett Burgess of Chelmsford, paralyzed at the age of 5, who traveled to all 50 states with his father to make the case for stem-cell research his doctors believe hold the promise that he can one day walk again.
How late is it for the embroyo [baby] that is killed to provide the stem cells, senator? What's the term for those that eat their young?
Thanks for the ping!
"Mr., I met a man once, who...."
"I guess none of our stories is very funny...."
Let's keep it straight: there is unethical research and ethical research.
Any research that purposefully and intentionally by design kills a human being or any of our children, is unethical.
Non-embryonic stem cells are ethical. There are 2 women in Texas who went to Portugal to receive therapy with their own stem cells. My granddaughter and thousands of patients have received umbilical stem cell bone marrow transplants. Researchers in Australia reported that they are able to get multiple lines of easily grown, self-reproducing stem cells from the sensory cells in the nasal mucosa.
We need to cure people and keep them working, to pay taxes.
When they can't pay taxes anymore, pull their feeding tubes.
Thanks for the ping!
