Some politicians have no shame, and methinks we have to now include Senator Frank R. Lautenberg, D-N.J., to that list. Reacting to a story about high levels of autism in NJ, the good Senator said. “This report only strengthens my resolve to get federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, which scientists believe could someday help find a cure or treatment for autism.”
We don’t even know what causes autism. To claim that ESCRs will provide a cure is utterly irresponsible.
