The New York Times reported today that President Obama will be reversing Bush administration limits on federal financing for embryonic stem cell research at a ceremony on Monday. According to the article, Obama said this signals a general return to “sound science.” And one proponent sited in the article said that this will return us to an era of “scientists making scientific decisions.” …The article calls these “human embryos.” The word “human” should be, oh, a big hint to us. Who out there hasn’t initially been: a human embryo? Translated: We’re killing people at the earliest stage of their life. I mean, it wouldn’t take an ethics professor, a scientists or even a president who went to Harvard to figure this one out. Note: The national news carried a story today about a man in Cleveland who killed his new wife, her sister and three young children with a semi-automatic weapon. It happened on W. 89th St. just two miles west of us. Today I took our kids to a Recreation Center halfway between W. 89th St. and our place. While playing basketball, I noticed a 10-year-old kid standing nearby. He had a pronounced scar that ran from the corner of his eye all the way down to his chin. I asked what happened. He, rather matter of factedly, said someone knifed him when he was five. America’s big cities are becoming such war zones.
