It Is Not Theory

If you want a concrete, real world example of what the stem cell issue is all about Jack knows.

I’m not interested in bad interpretations of ancient works that people are unable or unwilling to read in the original language. If you haven’t read it in the original language, you haven’t read it.

Basing decisions on a willful ignorance of science, is not ethical, it is just ignorant. I heard all of this garbage back in the day about organ donations, and before that it was blood donations and vaccines. Every one of those things was portrayed as anti-religious and unethical, oh, you don’t want to know about what was said in the South about the possibility of “race mixing”. People, who could have been saved, died because of these attitudes, and that is not ethical.

It was agonizing to write, but my own post on the subject is finally up. I know how Jack feels.

Frankly, Steve, I could add another story but, it is painful. The possibilities are too great to ignore. I don’t see why this isn’t identical, ethically, to organ donation. You are using living material that would go to waste to save lives.
