With the libelous subhead: "Bush-era limit on research leaves U.S. lagging"
"Driven mostly by hope, two California families will travel more than 6,000 miles to China for an experimental stem-cell treatment for their children. Aleesha and Michael Klomp of Hanford, California, say they don't need guarantees - they're willing to take a chance so their son Gryphon Klomp, 2, might walk and grasp a spoon some day soon.
Fresno, California, mother Jennifer Schmidt has the same faith about the benefits of umbilical-cord stem-cell therapy for 2-year-old daughter Brooke Schmidt-Jordan.
Both toddlers have cerebral palsy. Their families' situation highlights the real-world effects of the prolonged national debate over stem-cell research.
That research in the United States has been delayed amid concerns about the use of stem cells taken from embryos destroyed in the process."
THIS KIND OF RESEARCH IS NOT BEING DELAYED BY CONCERNS ABOUT EMBRYOS BEING DESTROYED, BECAUSE THIS KIND OF RESEARCH DOES NOT DESTROY EMBRYOS. It's being delayed by pencilnecks at the FDA who treat each new adult or cord blood stem cell protocol as if it's a new drug. Opponents of EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH are the ones screaming bloody murder that the FDA is stonewalling. But the "compassionate" proponents of ESCR aren't raising a stink, because they DO NOT WANT CURES FROM ADULT STEM CELLS OR CORD BLOOD STEM CELLS. Every treatment with adult or cord blood stem cells is another nail in the ESCR coffin. So they perpetuate the myth that it's ESCR opponents putting up the roadblocks.
I suppose it should be no surprise that people who embrace killing should have no qualms about bearing false witness.
They block true research. They make false promises and instill false hope. They kill real hope. They bear false witness against those who are pushing for true research, making real progress, offering real hope.
What level of Hell is appropriate for such deplorable people?
