This Fox isn’t crazy.

October 24th, 2006

Some people are mad at Michael J. Fox for doing campaign ads for candidates like Jim Doyle because of their unrestricted support of stem cell research.

Personally, viagra sales sales I can’t blame him.

It’s a legitimate issue and a legitimate point of view. I think stem cell research is a lot more morally complicated than many folks on the Left say it is, discount cialis but I don’t think these spots are hitting below the belt.

I just wish they were a little less effective emotionally.

    The problem I see…they don’t distinguish between adult stem cell research (with which I have no problem) and embryonic stem cell research (which I do).

    Actually, Kate, the Fox ad for Doyle does distinguish between ASCR and ESCR.

    Since I haven’t seen it, I’m going to take your word for it…. for now. :)

    I saw no problem with it either, except it’s going to be very effective. Not that I’m against public funding of ESCR (thanks for the acronym, Jay), which is really what we’re discussing; I just think we ought to discuss the ethics and science a bit more.

    Fox has always made a very effective spokesman for SCR, because of the fact he has never made himself a victim.

    So Jay, can you please explain the differce between ASCR and ESCR in a 30 second ad to clear up the differences between the two for the viewing public and still plop Doyles name in there… all in 30 seconds???

    The ad is very deceiving
