An end to stem cell debate? Probably not.

A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel story about another new process that seems to make it possible to create stem cells without destroying fetuses asks if this is:

An end to stem cell debate?

Or course it’s not. That’s because the stem cell debate was never about science or medicine, cialis generic ampoule it was always about politics.

Pro-lifers and pro-choicers alike know that once people begin getting an actual (marketable) benefit from killing fetuses and using them for medicine, cure there’s no going back.

After all, order a sick Michael J. Fox is a lot more sympathetic than an invisible and voiceless human in a test tube.

My guess is this debate will be going on long after the science has made the question moot. It’s in the interest of the pro-choice community to keep it going as long as possible.
