Cell Transplant Allows Paralyzed Man To Walk

Bartles Re:I'm still waiting... (156 comments)

I could take an embryo from a toilet in the Bronx subway system straight to a research lab and they could test it and harvest it all they want. It is not illegal and it never has been. They just can't use tax revenue to fund the research.

Well, in the end, you are really just a cluster of cells like an embryo. Who are you to think you are so special. Consciousness is just a series of chemicals and electrical impulses moving through organized cells. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't mean anything at all.

And yet there are tons of firearms statistics available to anyone who wishes to seek them out.

They are incinerated as worthless biological waste. They are not bought and sold so some corporation can profit from them.

Since it's not your money, why do you care? Since it's not your wife or husband, why do you care? Since it's not your dog, why do you care? Since it's not your house, why do you care? Since it's not your city, why do you care? Since it's not your book, why do you care? Since it's not your life, why do you care?

Cell Transplant Allows Paralyzed Man To Walk

Bartles Re:I'm still waiting... (156 comments)

I'd prefer that embryos continue to be worthless. If people really want to donate ESC's, they can be obtained without destroying embryos, non-functioning brain stem or otherwise. But it's all irrelevant. ESC research was not illegal before, it's not illegal now, and we still don't have any treatments I'm aware of that require the use of ESC's. It's almost as if some people just really want it to be legal to destroy human embryos.

I'm aware that this didn't use stem cells, but I feel like the whole embryonic stem cell issue was just a blunt instrument used to hit a president that people disagreed with. Making paralyzed people walk again was one of the dishonest arguments proponents used, Christopher Reeve being one of them. I really feel that the pro-embryonic stem cell people were the ignorant asses.

...for all the breakthrough treatments that use embryonic stem cells.

Yes. Tell that to the soldiers described in the article that received the Purple Heart from injuries caused by those harmless old munitions that Saddam didn't have.,

That was part of the position of the Bush administration, but you are being deliberately dishonest by ignoring the entire position.

Umm. Yes he did. See 9/12/02 speech at the UN, and 2003 state of the union.

Pentagon Reportedly Hushed Up Chemical Weapons Finds In Iraq

Bartles Re:So confused (376 comments)

There were many chemical weapons in Iraq that were never discovered or controlled by arms inspectors. That's what this story is saying no matter how hard the NYT is trying to obfuscate. These are not weapons that were sealed by the UN.
