The Corner

The one and only.

Jonathan Moreno


Earlier this year, I documented how the Center for American Progress “ethicist” misrepresented the views of people with whom he disagrees (see here, here, here, here, and here). Even leaving the misrepresentations aside, what Moreno was arguing was that a strong scientific consensus existed that embryo-destructive stem-cell research had more promise than any alternative methods of stem-cell research, and that pro-lifers were exaggerating the potential of the alternatives. As he put it in a co-written article, “Ultimately, the scientific community has reached its consensus: there are no viable alternatives to embryonic stem cells.” So is he admitting that he got it wrong, and slandered the people who got it right? Of course not.
