Fired for Quoting Gibson on Stem Cell Research

Julianne Thompson, a NY school bus driver, states that she was fired after sharing with students an article about stem cell research without giving her opinion [Reuters]. It would seem her mistake was quoting actor Mel Gibson, who asserted that the 20 years of embryonic stem cell research have not cured any diseases but more than 300,000 cures have been found with adult stem cells. Would she have been fired for quoting an article that took the opposite position?

"In the midst of all the misplaced outrage, is the story of the sad and disturbing success of a fraudulent social 'conscience' that devalues life in favor of demonstrably failed science, wasting billions of dollars in the process," she was quoted as saying.

Well done Ms. Thompson.
