I expect for my lib brother to be gloating over this.
I am absolutely sick over this subject tonight. My 24-year old daughter, who is going to school to become a physician’s assistant, was absolutely jubilant tonight over the stem cell news.
I tried to tell her that nothing could justify destroying babies, and she said “it has nothing to do with killing babies, and everything to do with helping hundreds of thousands of sick people”.
She said they will not be allowed to create embryos just for the research, but that they can use embryos that are not “viable”. I don’t understand her argument and I was getting very upset, so I did not continue with her.
Can someone help me refute that argument? I feel like a failure and a coward because I do not like to argue - with anybody - and it breaks my heart that my daughter thinks this is ok. I guess that’s one of the things they taught her in pre-med (which I paid for).
