Stem cell researchers reacted with enthusiasm and reservations to a
report that scientists have found stem cells in amniotic fluid, a
discovery that would allow them to sidestep the controversy over
destroying embryos for research.

Researchers at Wake Forest University and Harvard University reported
Sunday that the stem cells they drew from amniotic fluid donated by
pregnant women hold much the same promise as embryonic stem cells.

They reported they were able to extract the stem cells from the fluid,
which cushions babies in the womb, without harm to mother or fetus and
turn their discovery into several different tissue cell types,
including brain, liver and bone.

Looks like another excuse to killing babies is being eliminated by
those who love life. The abortion crowd will have to circle the wagons
for a spin on this one.

It looks like President Bush was right not to allow federal funding of
stem cell research in the form it had been presented to him. He did
say there were alternatives available and he forced researchers to look
harder.

Jesus H, you fanatics really stoop to low levels to try to claim
any kind of moral position. Do you really, truly, hand-on-heart
think this result happened because of the fantacism of so-called
"pro lifers"? You think research on stem cells (which Dubya has
done so much to impede) is done by folk who don't care about the
embryos they work with? In the UK (to which some US researchers
have been forced to flee to do stem cell work), a major theme of
this news story has been the joy on the part of the researchers,
that they now have an alternative -- they no longer must agonise
over which should be saved: the embryo; or the grown individuals
whose lives are in danger.

That you seek to score petty (and worthless) political points in
the face of such joyous news -- and lie while doing it -- pushes
you deep down in the pond scum. For decency's sake, grow up!

They have to do what they can considering their "moral position" was smoke
and mirrors to begin with.

First of all, it "excuse FOR", not "excuse TO".

Now: Are you suggesting that some women have abortions because they want to
assist in stem cell research? You seem to be implying some connection
between the two things.

I can't speak for the UK, but in the US the abortion crowd was telling
us constantly that embryonic stem cells were going to be the cure-all
for every disease known to mankind (just exaggerating a bit) and that
not federally funding it would push us back into the Dark Ages of
medicine.

This story highlights that there are always alternatives to killing
babies, whatever the circumstances. Stem Cell research is on the fast
track even though President Bush would not sign the bill to fund it
federally.

Again: Are you suggesting that the reason some women have abortions is to
supply stem cell researchers?

Are you saying that your sentence did NOT draw a connection between women's

They are not gestapo tactics, although I can see that my question annoys you
because I'm asking whether YOU agree with what YOU wrote. Or, I need to know
if I'm misinterpreting it.

So, first: I think it's cool that they can get stem cells from amnionic
fluid. However, it is not free of risk, but that's not a big deal.

Now, back to what you wrote. You seem to be saying that some women decide
to have an abortion because they look forward to donating biological
material to researchers. If I've got it wrong, then please explain what you
MEANT to say.

I saw that. It doesn't make sense. The abortion lobby doesn't defend the
practice because it provides a nice supply of material for research. They
defend the practice because certain decisions are to remain private.

They want federally funded stem cell research from harvested dead
babies because in their minds it justifies continued legalization of
abortion. They are running out of reasons why abortion-on-demand
should be legal and are looking for ways to continue population control.

Re: {OT} alternative to killing babies

>From http://tinyurl.com/yacu7o -

"Knowing she can donate tissue from her abortion to potentially
lifesaving medical research may help a woman turn an unintended
pregnancy about which she may feel a sense of loss into a social good.
The choice to donate often gives solace to women who may need to end
their pregnancies (Anderson, et al., 1994; Martin, 1993; Martin, et
al., 1995)."

In other words, believing that she may be contributing to medical
research may help some women "feel better" about killing a baby - an
excuse, exactly as BGM termed it. Of course, the potential guilt seems
a little puzzling given PP's claim that aborting a baby is very likely
a "positive" experience for the mother-to-be, with few if any regrets
after the fact.

If you paid attention, the stem cells that would be used would be the
surplus embryos of in vitro fertilization - the ones that otherwise get
thrown away. Instead, people (some people) want to put them to good use
rather than discard them.

You are the one who inferred that if other ways are found to harvest
embryonic stem cells - other than via aborted fetuses/embryos, that would be
a blow to those who are pro choice. Which is a bunch of baloney.

You can make such a stance - obviously, but you can't then honestly expect
others to just read it & find no disagreement with it.

If I recall, one of the stooges (dbu, golf boy, sharx or snott in florida)
explained (in a thread about Cheney's daughter) that in vitro fertilization
was a process reserved for lesbians and other undesirables. How could we not
have known this?

Ignoring your idiotic link of abortion rights and stem cell research, I
have to ask you if you think anybody who has had a baby by in vitro
fertilization, is a "baby killer"? `cause that's where almost all the
embryos come from for research.

This comes from the type of "moral" people that would rather see an
overpopulated 3rd world full of starving children than allow birth
control.
