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/
Boy she hit the nail on the head.
Michael J. Fox never said the word "embryonic", but he was referring to existing and proposed restrictions on embryonic stem cell research. His did not use the term because he is trying to obscure the issue, and the Democrats know that if the word "embryonic" is used, they lose a lot of votes. But if he is not talking about embryonic stem cell research, then his statements make no sense at all.
I don't remember if he actually used "embryonic" stem cell research. You can used just stem cells that are not "embryonic". Maybe that's what Michael was referring to? Or not. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
Non-embryonic stem cell research is not controversial and receives a lot of federal funding. Michael J. Fox is talking specifically about fetal stem cell research, whether he uses the word or not.
Liberals like to confuse the two so they can wrap conservatives objections to fetal stem cell research (which has produced not a single treatment for anything) with the perfectly acceptable (and currently productive) use of adult stem cells for treatment.
Me either - did you notice that he wasn't as much shaking, but rocking from side to side when he talked. Whenever he took a breath or stopped talking, he wasn't rocking as hard. But when he started talking, he started rocking. Looked forced, to me.
That is what liberals are whining about. They want government funding. The government must fund everything.
It seems to me that if MJ Fox was really concerned about Parkinson's and other disease, he'd cough up some of that dough he made making movies and start a private research fund.
Other rich hollywood types could throw in a few thousand to show their concern as well.
What a mean spirited sentiment. One can only assume that the Democrats are psying the author to make such comments.
Yes, Fox is wrong. But pursuing it will not help Republicans and gives sympathy votes for the Dems. It's why they use the weak to do their dirty work for them. Their ideas don't work, so they have to play on the emotions of their ranks who don't know how to think.
Given the level of discourse on display in this thread, I don't think such an assumption is necessary.
Do you really have to be told?
This has nothing to do with embryonic stem cells. It has nothing to do with Parkinsons, Alzheimers or Michael J. Fox. It has nothing to do with curing disease.
It is all about Abortion.
The Donks were tired of having their butts kicked over Partial Birth Abortion, so they moved to debate to the other end of the gestational spectrum. Principled Pro-Lifers could no more accept Embryonic Stem Cell Research than they could Partial Birth Abortion, so they took up the challenge. That is why we are talking about this today.
We have to re-frame the issue......because to run as cowards from the embryonic stem cell issue we are condemning the unborn.
The title simply draws on the author's final sentence.
I agree with you. It is a very important issue.
Because you don't make much progress in genetic research by banging two rocks together, and that's all the Canadians have. You won't find the cure for Parkinsons under a Labatt's Blue bottlecap, so no Canadian is likely to find it at all.
But seriously, this is all about Abortion. The whole issue is one giant red herring.
He's just a typical self-serving liberal, trying to gain benefit on the harvesting of the unborn.
Embryonic, non embryonic, lab-grown or harvested; it still amounts to walking around the camel's nose.
There is absolutely not a single thing morally wrong with adult stem cell research.
Note please the following wise phrasing: "... exploited for their eggs, too, because the only source of these pre-embryos is women." The term 'pre-embryo' became a popular lie of the democrats and their leftist sycophants, to dehumanize embryo aged beings, using the term to identify early aged embryos for exploitation harvesting. IVF tries to make this same lie palitable becase they exploit embryo aged humans all the time.
