« Steve Sheffey Guest Commentary: DEMOCRATS & ISRAEL | Main | Just how unpopular is President Bush? »

December 05, 2007



i have been bewildered by people suddenly crying "vindication" of bush denial of one form of stem cell research just because of a great breakthrough of an alternative different method. what irks me more is that some jews choose align themselves with the gop christian rhetoric despite the fact that there is no prohibition in jewish law (even the orthodox union has expressed so) against embryonic stem cell research. (especially in a community that has many genetic diseases)


Charles Krauthammer has a great column on Bush's principled stance on embryonic stem cells and his current vindication by advances in technology by the very same scientist who first isolated human embryonic stem cells. An embryo-free way to produce genetically matched stem cells. Even a scientist who cares not a whit about the morality of embryo destruction will adopt this technique because it is so simple and powerful.
