Wow, that just makes it all OK that he wants to kill some babies through his support of Embryonic Stem Cell Research, right?

From my understanding, that is not a fair representation of McCain's position. The reasoning, whether you agree with it or not, is that these embryos are gonna be destroyed any ways, why not use them for good. McCain does not support letting people create embryos for research. It is not a rationalization I agree with as it creates an environment which likely will lead to creating and harvesting embryos for research, but it is a position that a reasonably pro-life person could take.

Either way, it is still rationalizing the murder of an innocent!

Cut away all the rationalization, and you are still killing a developing Human Being.
