Blog roundup

This blog touts the embryonic stem cell research bill, and includes this gem:
Representative James R. Langevin, a Rhode Island Democrat, who was paralyzed at age 16 after a gun accidentally discharged in a police station and severed his spinal cord, said he supported the embryonic stem cell legislation despite opposing abortion.

Can't people grasp the simple facts? Embryonic stem cells, aside from being a morally objectionable line of approach, have produced nothing but disasters, while we're already getting medical miracles from cord blood and adult stem cells.

Here is another blogger who just doesn't get it, and equates Bush's stand on embryonic stem cells with a threat on cancer research.

Here's a blogger with an interesting proposal -- she thinks parental involvement laws for abortion are only appropriate if the child in question is under the age of consent. Let's go in there and encourage her fresh and innovative thinking!

Liberal Quicksand ponders how abortion can simultaneously be a right, and something that ought to be rare.

Chase argues that a "right" to abortion implies a "right" to the resources and labor of other people. He's right in that's how the abortion lobby seems to see it. But the abortion lobby doesn't consider this to be a bad thing.
