Watching This Made Me Think of Politicians Who Speak in Favor of Embryonic Stem/Human Cloning Research


This is obviously a brilliant parody. But it made me think about the same kind of junk advocacy I have heard from politicians pushing embyronic stem cell and human cloning research. We have been told that embryos aren't really embryos, they are just cell balls. We have been told that the act of cloning isn't SCNT, it is implantation of the ball of stem cells in a womb. We were even told by Senator John Edwards, that if John Kerry were elected, people in their wheelchairs would walk!

So enjoy the parody and pay close attention to the closing message: "Politicians are the same everywhere."
