Skip to comments.Michael J. Fox is a cannibal

Michael J. Fox is a famous TV and movie star. He is witty. He is charming. A few years ago, we learned he has Parkinson's disease.
PD is a slowly progressive neurological disorder, characterized by tremors, shuffling gait, a masklike facial expression, "pill rolling" of the fingers, drooling, intolerance to heat, oily skin, emotional instability and defective judgment (although intelligence is rarely impaired).
PD is currently incurable, although there are several methods to slow its advancement, including drug therapy and surgery.
PD is tragic, particularly in Fox's case, because it rarely afflicts persons under 60 years old.
Yet everyone faces tragedy at one time or another, in one form or another. A person's moral fiber is revealed in tragedy.
So we learned through Fox's affliction that he has either extremely poor judgment or a diabolical character flaw. He supports human embryonic stem-cell experimentation, thus contending that some humans are subhuman and expendable for others' personal gain.
We know there is nothing new under the sun. So Fox's character flaw is not new, just a variation of the worst of human behavior throughout history.
Slaveholders thought those whose lives and deaths they controlled were "property," as the U.S. Supreme Court determined in the 1857 Dred Scott decision. Hitler thought Jews were evolutionary mistakes. The Islamic government of Sudan currently has it in for black Christians.
Different day, different holocaust.
As is always the case, the powerful determine the fate of the powerless, and if the powerful don't hold the view that all humans are created equal, then the powerless end up enslaved or dead.
Some may think I'm going over the top to compare Fox to slave owners or Hitler or the Sudanese government. "Fox is a nice guy, and he's sick. Be nice."
If you think that, your sympathies are misplaced. Fox advocates killing certain people to experiment on them "for the greater good" simply because those people don't look like we do yet. This is odd, because some day Fox won't look like most people either.
If Fox wanted to kill a football stadium full of toddlers to experiment on them, I doubt anyone would think he was normal, and I doubt anyone would bear with his barbaric rambling to be nice.
But using Fox's logic, experimentation of 2-year-olds should be acceptable. Toddlers are certainly far less developed on the human continuum and don't look at all normal by adult standards. The reason they are called "toddlers" in the first place is because their oversized heads and bellies cause them to "toddle" when they walk.
Scientifically speaking, a human is a human from the instant of fertilization, no matter what phase of development. "Take that single cell of the just conceived zygote, put it next to a chimpanzee cell, and 'a geneticist could easily identify the human. Its humanity is already that strikingly apparent,'" said Randy Alcorn in his newly released book, "Why Pro-Life?," quoting from "Preview of a Birth."
I'll worry about Fox's feelings after he stops using his considerable influence to convince the American public to support taxpayer-funded human embryonic stem-cell experimentation. Fox is not only pushing an ideology on me that advocates the destruction of human life, but he also wants to force me to pay for it. What gall.
I feel sorry for Fox's kids. Flashing them either forward or backward in one of Fox's "Back to the Future" movies, they are in lose-lose situations.
The future Fox wants to create for his three daughters looks bleak. No longer will only hens lay eggs for human consumption if Fox has his way. His daughters will be exploited for their eggs, too, because the only source of these pre-embryos is women. It is foolish to think technology will be sated by the availability of today's orphaned embryos, as is now the spin.
And in an altered past, Fox would have allowed the dissection of his days-old embryonic children so he could surgically ingest them in an effort to cure his own ailments high tech cannibalism.
It's funny that Fox calls himself a vegetarian.
Jill Stanek fought to stop "live-birth abortion" after witnessing one as a registered nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ill. In 2002, President Bush asked Jill to attend his signing of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. In January 2003, World Magazine named Jill one of the 30 most prominent pro-life leaders of the past 30 years. To learn more, visit Jill's blog, Pro-life Pulse.http://www.jillstanek.com/
Sacrificing humans, born or un-born, is never acceptable in a civilized world. Our retired minister has PD and he is now house bound. It is a terrible disease and what everyone needs to accept is the deck of cards you are dealt.
A rose is a rose is a rose. Killing innocent life is wrong. Final benefit is not a mitigating defense for murder.
Isn't it interesting that we don't divide up what constitutes life in the animal kingdom. If I break a Bald Eagle's egg, it is considered the same crime as killing the Eagle. Curiously, what is the difference between a fertilized egg and a day old baby in your view? Neither one is salient or viable if left alone.
I still can't figure out who Steve Reeves is.
Poop! I keep getting Steve and Christopher Reeves confused. Must be coming down with alzeimer's. Should I eat babies for the cure?
I agree. Fox has placed himself in this debate, but I don't think Republicans should take the bait. It's a lose-lose situation for anyone who comments on it, including Fox himself as this article says. The man, a great actor in his day, is suffering a lot. I just don't want to add to it. I think Rush was correct to make his observations, but I think it's time to drop the subject.
This is besides the fact that embryonic stem cell treatment DOESN'T WORK.
The results have come from adult stem cell research.
Why are these people so hell-bent on destroying embryos when it hasn't produced results?
I'll tell you the very, very scary truth though, not one has ever said, "No." In fact, after just a bit of hesitation, they all start justifying actually doing it.
Brilliant! I wish I had thought of this. But from now on, I'll be using it.
Rush has apologized to Fox. OK, so apologize, but stand firm on the fact that Fox is WRONG!
Not sure if this angel on Michael J. Fox has been explored. Michael J. Fox is a Canadian. So the question comes to me why does he not go to the Canadian Parliament and have them commit to doing the stem cell research he wants. He should be demanding that Canada kill their children and have the Canadian taxpayers and citizen pay for the research and development I mean after all does Canada not have a superior medical system than the states?
I disagree. The Donks are playing hardball. It's about time we started pitching some high heat back at them.
Michael J. Fox has inserted himself into multiple campaigns around the country. Either he is lucid and responsible, and his point of view merits consideration, or he is not, and is a dupe. Either way, he needs to be refuted, and there is no need to spare his feelings.
Yes, there is. We're talking about HUMAN BEINGS here.
Besides, it appears his medication is magically working better today, so he can take the heat.
There is only one reason to use embryonic stem cells and that's to keep abortion legal.
Why do you think?
How about a title like this Michael J Fox does not care about the lives of Embryos.
