Yes, we are having a stem cell funding debate, although you wouldn't know it to watch the commercials.
Seems Michael Fox, who is suffering from Parkinsons Disease, is not satisfied with how much of your tax dollars is being spent to find him a cure.
So, he is running around the country attacking republicans who voted against federal funding for one specific stem cell research, namely Embryonic Stem Cell research that kills viable embryos.
It's not enough that the republicans are the first to fund embryonic stem cell research. Or that they voted to increase funding for the much more promising adult stem cell research, and cord research.
It's not enough that embryonic stem cell research is LEGAL federally, and in the states.It's not enough that many states and localities are funding research into embryonic stem cells, including 6 BILLION dollars in california.
No, Michael Fox will not rest until every one of us is forced against our will to contribute to the destruction of human life for a pie-in-the-sky promise of medical miracles decades down the road.
Like most liberals, Michael Fox believes the government exists to solve his problems, and that working americans exist to fund whatever is important to him, in this case killing human life to save his own life.It's time for us common folk to stand up to these multi-millionare hollywood types who think they are more important than we are, who think simply because we are willing to fork over 9 bucks to watch their crappy movies we would be happy to have them take our money by force to fund their pet projects.
Michael Fox, stop stealing MY money, and go after your buddies Soros, Buffet, Gates, and Turner -- they have BILLIONS of dollars, and are giving it away to people like you.
