Debate on Stem Cell Research
One of my disappointments in the debate was the answer each candidate, and particularly Bush, gave on the topic of embryonic stem cell research (ESCR). While there is no surprise over my stark disagreement with Kerry, I found Bush walking a political line, attempting to appear supportive (first president to fund ESCR) but at the same time holding to a pro-life stand (ESCR destroys life).
It is for this reason that I agree with Josh Claybourn in his recent statement: Let us take a moment to resolve a glaring fact that seems to have missed most of the public, and indeed most in the media. No presidential candidate is for banning stem cell research of any kind. Period.
