Editorial: Victory for science

"Stem cell research has arrived at a new crossroads. While relevant in the U.S. to research institutions such as Stanford, the end of the ethical debate is secondary to the new scientific potential of stem cell research. Nuclear reprogramming will allow scientists to easily furbish stem cells, which could result in organ replacements without the fear of rejection and the cure to such diseases as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Scientists, now able to focus on their specialty, may find another debate on their hands: who should receive federal funding to advance this highly promising new generation of stem cell research? Stanford, with its resources and human capital, appears well poised and as likely a recipient as any."

What is more valuable human rights or animal rights? An unborn eagle or an unborn child? If you chose the unborn child, sorry you are wrong--at least accounting to the law of the land. U.S Code Title 16 section 668, the eagle takes precedence. A person who kills, damgages,tranports a bald eagle, its egg, or nest is subject to a fine of up to $5,000 or imprisonment for up one year or both(first offense).Whereas, not only is there no penalty for aborting an unborn child?
A mass massacre of babies is going on in the U.S. today, not to mention Europe, the Soviet Union and many other places. One-and-a-half million abortions a year are performed in the U.S. alone, and it's estimated that one out of every four pregnancies ends in abortion! What a horrible slaughter!!
I don't think I've ever seen a sign saying "Save the Babies," have you? I've seen "Stop the Killings!" and things like that. They're always saying, "Save the Whales," "Save the Otters," "Save the Alligators," "Save the Wolves," and they're not even saving their own babies--human beings!
The Americans alone are now killing more babies every year than have been killed in all their wars that they have ever fought! What's the difference between killing babies before they're born or killing them after they are born. The almanac says that from the American Revolutionary War to the present, only 1.2 million Americans have died in battle, and they're killing 1.5 million babies every year!--Imagine!
